Waterloo native releases song

A Waterloo native who appeared on a Netflix series in 2018 has released a new original song that is available for streaming on Apple Music, Amazon Music and Spotify.

Lexi Krekorian, who uses the stage name Alexandra Kay, released the single “Dive Bar Dreamer,” which is an autobiographical ballad from the Netflix series “Westside.” 

“I created ‘Dive Bar Dreamer’ to represent my life as a performer, who I am, and the struggles we all face as artists,” she said.
