The familiar saying “leave it all on the stage” rings true for the thousands of fans who have seen Lyndsey Highlander in concert across the country. Lyndsey arrived in Nashville from the antebellum town of Providence Forge, VA, near the Chickahominy River. From an early age, Lyndsey was known for her precocious musical talents; it was just a matter of time before she would share her gifts with the world. An inspired writer and top-notch performer, Lyndsey is just now hitting her musical stride. Currently touring the country opening for Phil Vassar and Travis Tritt, Lyndsey is introducing audiences everywhere to her her fresh and powerful sound. Among headlining shows of her own, Lyndsey has landed opening slots and shared festival stages with artists such as Brantley Gilbert, Blackberry Smoke, Gretchen Wilson and Steel Magnolia to name a few.
While she grew up with a prolific body of Country music, Lyndsey couldn’t help but indulge in all genres. She pulls from the foundation of her musical influences from three strong, powerful women: Patsy Cline, Bonnie Raitt and Aretha Franklin. The combination of theses major female artists created the perfect drive and inspiration for Lyndsey’s songwriting and career. With a heart that melts with the honesty of Patsy, a soul that longs for Aretha’s melodies, and a body that can’t help but rock with Bonnie, Lyndsey is the perfect explosive mixture of the three. She also draws drive from multi-platinum Grammy Award-winning artist Beyonce. Similar to to Mrs. Knowles, Lyndsey strives to empower women while walking the line between her roots as a southern girl, and her spirit, which radiates an intriguing, sensual confidence.
Ultimately, Lyndsey undoubtedly has a style all her own, powered by massive vocal chops, soothing falsettos, and intimate story telling. As a live performer, Lyndsey has been known to mingle with the audience, firing up the crowd and melting their hearts with verses as impressive as her colossal bridges. Lyndsey comments, “Performing is indescribable, it’s God’s natural high… I love the music, I love the fans, I love absolutely everything about it!”
Soon after Lyndsey made the move to Nashville, she entered into a competition at the infamous Wildhorse Saloon, battling to become a regular house band. While performing, Lyndsey caught the attention of established talent agent, Jeff Howard, and was signed to APA Talent agency. “Trying to contain Lyndsey on stage would be like trying to lasso a tornado,” said Jeff. “Her performances are raw, energetic, sometimes uncontrollable and best observed in their beautiful natural state. She’s focused, but explodes with true talent.”
Recently making her national television debut on RFD-TV and landing a national sponsorship and ad campaign with the world’s largest manufacturer of farm and ranch equipment, TARTER, Lyndsey is making a name for herself in Nashville as an artist to watch. Lyndsey’s self-penned song, “Hard Work” was featured in TARTER’s commercial/music video starring Lyndsey and Ann Tarter and quickly made its home on GAC. The leading music industry trade magazine, CMA Close Up, also featured Lyndsey in the “Debut Artist Spotlight” spread.
The music video for “Flower’s Ain’t Gonna Fix This” from Lyndsey’s debut EP You Can’t Stop Me is currently live on CMT.com and ZUUS Country. After a warm response from her CMA Fest 2013 performances, Lyndsey is set to sing the National Anthem at the popular Riverfront stage as well as perform a set at the Chevy Roadhouse stage at CMA Fest 2014.
Look for the entire You Can’t Stop Me EP available on iTunes, Amazon and all respected online retailers.
