Stateside Pick of the Week:
Lindsey Saunders- Colorado
Nothing Normal- EP
Genre: Singer-Songwriter Indie
Lindsey Saunders is a Taylor Guitars Artist Partner (May 2014), with notable performances at events such as the Sundance Music Fest, Boulder International Film Fest, Durango Songwriters EXPO, SXSW, and CMJ Music Marathon. On her debut EP release “Nothing Normal” she collaborated with the likes of Lisa Harriton (Smashing Pumpkins), Jason Ganberg, Gayle Day, Ido Sasson, and Alex Balderston Saunders has received critical acclaim for her work being noted as a “triple threat musician” because of her skills as a vocalist, songwriter, and guitarist.
The instrumental release “Miles Before Sleep” was released November 4, 2014 . Vastly different from her indie pop debut in 2012, her talents shine as a composer in her own right. Geared towards the classical guitar listeners, 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.
