it's all about the signs

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 Deaf Gain in her left ear (partial Deafness 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 ran Seriously Sik sound rentals before Corona. Cristina advocates for Deaf culture and fair access to ASL interpretation. Deaf Child's work would not be possible without love from friends and family. Special thanks to Very Sherrie, Tori, Lyndz, Daira, Keyla, Katalina, and every person with whom Deaf Child has had the pleasure of having a heart to heart.
