speak up for each other


Alexis Larinda Carney (Lexie) is a hard of hearing musician, marketer, and manager. She struggles from financial stress as an independent songwriter with no private funding or guide. The first person in her family to graduate college, she put together a team to promote sustainable art. 

Deaf Child's mission: make music, bring people together, and support communities. The name comes from Lexie's complete loss of usable hearing in her left ear (partial loss in right) since birth. She earned her Bachelor of Science from Loyola University New Orleans in Music Industry Studies plus Business Administration. Her songs explore future folk and electro blues.

It takes a village: Shah produces electronic music plus runs Seriously Sik sound rentals. Cristina advocates Deaf culture and fair access to ASL interpretation.
