"Just when we know what the big songs of 2015 are going to be, something else comes along and blows everything out in the water."

Paul Miller, BBC Radio

From the first note, Lindsey Webster captivates listeners. Her rich, soulful voice enchants a dedicated following who connect with the raw emotion she shares with them. As a Soul R&B artist, she combines an admirable natural talent with a genuine, accessible stage presence. 

Webster considers herself “very, very lucky” to have grown up in Woodstock, NY. With a heavy emphasis on arts and music, her grade school had a progressive music program where Lindsey cultivated a deep love of music by learning the cello. After playing for 10 years, often in first chair, she moved to NYC to attend Fiorello H. LaGuardia School for the Music, Art & Performing Arts. As she grew musically, she transitioned from strings to voice where she heard her calling and found herself.

In 2009, Lindsey met her partner, Keith Slattery, and started performing professionally. Together, with a band of world-class musicians, they’ve performed over 600 shows in venues including Yoshi's Oakland, The Iridium, North Sea Jazz Club, Pizza Express, Levon Helm Studios, Daryl’s House, Helsinki Hudson, The Falcon, The Bitter End, and the Bearsville Theater.

The success of her second album, You Change, and achieving the only vocally driven song to hit #1 on the Billboard Contemporary Jazz chart for four weeks (beating out Sade’s previous record of three weeks) caught the eye of Shanachie Entertainment, whom she signed with to release her third album, "Back To Your Heart". This third relelase shows a real transition and beautiful growth for Webster as an artist. While humbled her voice has been compared to R&B royalty Sade, Mariah Carey, and Anita Baker, Lindsey looks to bring her distinct style to Soul R&B and continue to make music that resonates with her fans.

If you are not familiar with Lindsey, here are a couple of reviews that describe her music perfectly:  

"If Carole King and Sade had a kid, she would be Lindsey Webster. Sultry with a silken feel, Webster’s instrument on her second outing is given a worthy, gorgeously produced showcase that is set to dazzle newcomers who missed her critically acclaimed, self-titled debut. Hailed by such stars as Sting and Michael Bolton as a brilliant artist, Webster is the latest in a line of blue-eyed soul artists who are leading with strong songwriting and live instrumentation, keeping it simple yet effective"

"Do you remember that moment when you first heard Anita Baker or Sade; the effortless, sultry, and soaring vocal that captures all of your attention? Lindsey Webster’s delicate and powerful voice takes you to that place – an unabashed nod to the greats and yet 100 percent Lindsey."
