Karlex is a musician, singer, songwriter, husband, father, son, brother, friend and hopefully much more. Born in Haiti, he later moved to the US where he studied Television production, then decided to play music full time. At some point, he briefly moved back to Haiti to work in the family business before moving to France and resumed a career in music. After releasing Ghetto Fabulous in 2006 and With All Due Respect in 2009 to much critical acclaim, he is back with a new Album “Paris- New York - Port Au Prince”
Karlex has always describe the roots of his music as a journey from Africa to America, the Caribbean Islands and Europe.
“Paris New York Port Au Prince” with lyrics in French, Haitian Creole, American and broken English is the album that he feels has come closer to that claim. His Afro groove signature style truly mixes with the pop rock sound of Europe and funk sounds reminiscent of American music to create his more mainstream work ever.
- WYCE MUSIC JOURNAL 88.1 FM :An easy listening world album that combines elements of R&B, reggae, blues, rock, and funk, Karlex grooves a great sound. He has fun with this record and it shows. By Lane Zoerhof
- We love Karlex and his unique blend of classic soul, funk, and reggae music. His relaxing grooves and positive message are inspiring in light of the turmoil, poverty, and harsh political conditions in Haiti where he grew up. Karlex's Ghetto Fabulous is not about the bling, but instead about finding joy and happiness even in the most difficult circumstances. Amie street Editorial
