Bio & Press
Lindsey Saunders is an artist who channels the soul of her influences as diverse as Flyleaf, James Taylor, Alanis Morrissette, and John Mayer. Less "pop" than indie songstress Saunders is becoming known as a skilled guitarist, vocalist, and songwriter. Jump on the musical joyride that is nothing normal...
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.

6/12/13 Dark Horse Nashville: "In this world of plastic pre-fab pop, which has been spoon-fed to the masses and declared great music, this writer is thankful for Lindsey Saunders. Knowing there are youth out there who still have an organic need to create music that is original and pure."
