Biography

A guitar geek encased in the shell of a potential pop star, many describe Lindsey Saunders as a mix between John Mayer and Ed Sheeran. Her unconventional chord crafting has earned her a Taylor Guitar Artist Partnership with notable performances at events such as the Sundance Film Festival, Boulder International Film Festival, Durango Songwriters Expo, SXSW and CMJ Music Marathon. Lindsey has received critical acclaim for her work being noted as a musician whose artistry and poise as a songwriter, guitarist, and vocalist demands to be both seen and heard. 

Time and time again, Lindsey has shown her depth as an artist. With influences from Tool to Erykah Badu, she has written and released music of all genres. On her debut EP “Nothing Normal”, she collaborated with the likes of  Lisa Harriton (Smashing Pumpkins) to release a collection of indie pop songs known for being unique yet accessible. The instrumental release “Miles Before Sleep” followed two years later.  Vastly different from her debut in 2012, her talents shine as a composer in her own right.  Geared towards the classical guitar listener, the four movements were born out of Catherine Tiso’s contemporary dance Diverge/Connect (2013 – Chicago).  The composition has received worldwide reviews as a classical crossover hit.

Lindsey has recently began collaboration with eTown and Airshow Mastering to release unique versions of universally loved songs as well as her original work on YouTube. These videos have earned her hundreds of thousands of views as well as fans from all around the globe. Lindsey finished her first European tour in late 2016, playing shows in Dusseldorf, Koln, London and more.
