was born in Baden in the canton of Aargau and grew up in Spreitenbach. His repertoire ranges from classical song to oratorio, from opera and operetta to musical and classical pop. He began his singing career at an early age and made his first stage experience in the extra chorus of the Zurich Opera House. There he came in contact with important personalities of the international music scene. He took part in the productions "Nabucco", "Aida", "Turandot", "Mefistofele" and " Un ballo in maschera". With the help of a grant, he continued his vocal studies with Armando Appiani in Frankfurt am Main and Zurich. For many years, he also studied with Kammersängerin Helga Kosta (“The Nightingale of Switzerland”) and the Greek opera singer Meropi Jordano. Further vocal studies followed with Jane Thorner Mengedoht. At present, he is studying with Lukas Reinitzer.

He was a guest at one of the popular Garden Parties of the jazz-singer Dame Cleo Lane at the Stables in Wavendon, Milton Keynes, UK. Leading roles led him to the Bernhard-Theater Zurich and the Häbse-Theater Basel in "My Fair Lady" as "Freddy" and Jean-Michel in "La Cage Aux Folles", as well as to the Atelier-Theater in Riehen as Lieutenant Zwingli in the operetta "Cagliostro" by Johann Strauss. He could also be heard in a supporting role in the Swiss musical "Hotel Happy End" from Hans Gmür. Concert performances have taken him to the small hall of the Tonhalle Zurich, the Stadthaus Winterthur, the Palazzo dei Congressi Lugano, the Kongresshaus Zurich, as well as other concert halls in Switzerland and abroad. After winning 3rd place in the National Show Talent Competition in Zürch in 1990 and the Prix Walo for talented young artists of the Show Scene of Switzerland in 1991, he was able to realize various CD recordings of well-known musical pieces. In the Jungbrunnen-Theater in Zurich he could be heard with Viennese songs and a Broadway programme. Lex Solomon has a distinct flair for Klezmer music, Yiddish and Hebrew songs. His artist name is dedicated to the memory of his great-grandfather, Solomon, on his mother's side. Lex is very humorous and loves to slip into comic roles.
