Lex Sadler is an Australian-born bass player, keyboard bass player, programmer and producer residing in New York City. As a sideman, Lex has toured both the US and internationally with artists such as Blitz The Ambassador and renowned Cellist/Trombonist Dana Leong. Lex is the bass and key bass player for upcoming R&B sensation Jordan Bratton.
Lex performed with ELIZABETH the Band as part of The Hennessy Artistry tour, alongside The Roots, Common, Queen Latifah and Q-Tip at Houston’s “The Corinthian” and New York’s “Terminal 5”. In 2012, he launched his solo project ‘Rhythm & Stealth’, with debut album ‘Twenty Three Seven’, a self-produced genre bending record that recalls the electronic sounds of the UK underground.
Revive Music (OkayPlayer) describes Lex as “equally nasty at electric bass, key-bass, and production”, and recently featured him on their website, The Revivalist.
Lex is a long time endorsee of Warwick & Framus, one of the world’s premier manufacturers of electric basses.
