Mini Trees’ Debut Album ‘Always In Motion’ Out Today

Mini Trees, the solo musical project of Lexi Vega, is today releasing her debut album Always In Motion via Run For Cover Records.

Previously released singles include the driving, upbeat “Carrying On,” the introspective, sweetly dreamy tune “Spring” and the deeply groovy “Cracks In The Pavement” and the most recent single “Moments In Between.”

Always In Motion is the result of a lifetime of reflection for Vega. The daughter of a Cuban-born father and Japanese-American mother, the uniqueness of her identity has been an ever-present tension in Lexi’s life. She never quite fit in growing up within predominantly white communities in suburban southern California, with few who around her outside of her family to understand the generational scars caused by both exile and internment. When she was only 5 years old, Vega’s father, a professional drummer himself, took his own life. These traumas set in motion an ongoing questioning of Vega’s own self identity – and Mini Trees has provided the palette for Vega to process, to persevere, and to grow.

Mini Trees recently joined Julien Baker and Thao for a special run of US shows and is returning to her hometown of Los Angeles to headline the Moroccan Lounge on September 30th.
