Alexis Monique Aviles, known professionally as SIXELA, is a 27 year-old, independent, American singer/songwriter from Chicago, Illinois but has been living in Florida long enough to call herself a native. SIXELA’s sound is a mix of contemporary modern R&B, mixed with rambunctious and bouncy rap. Her first project, Before Anything, was an example of how versatile SIXELA is, carrying several different genres and sounds. Following that release, she began writing songs for other artists and gained popularity as a songwriter in the Orlando area. In 2019, SIXELA released two singles, Hot Air Balloon and Bad Gal. She recently started a vlog called “The Goonie Tunes” on Youtube, a small documentary of her and her close friends who are also artists in Orlando going through the journey of being a well known artist and having a great support system.
