Lindsey Webster — You Change (July 17th, 2015)
≡★≡ Vzpomínáte si na ten okamžik, kdy jste poprvé slyšeli Anitu Baker nebo Sade? Absolutně bez námahy, smyslný, vášnivý, vznášející se zpěv jakoby plachtil nad krajinou, soustřeďující na sebe všechnu pozornost. Lindsey Webster má hlas jemný a silný — s neskrývanou aspirací zvuk trochu načechrat a ona sama je navíc 100%–ně svá. S výkonným čtyřoktávovým hlasovým rozsahem, hudba Lindsey je směsicí soulu, funku a R&B, s lehkými bluesovými vlivy. Neskutečný talent. Dva hlavní singly: “Fool Me Once” a “Open Up”.
≡★≡ Na Top 25 New Music Critiques (Music Connection Magazine) obdržela druhou nejvyšší známku 8.6.
≡★≡ Sounds Like: Joss Stone, Sade, Adele, Mariah Carey, Steely Dan
≡★≡ In today’s world of electronic music where programmed drum loops and auto–tuned vocals reign, Lindsey Webster is a breath of fresh air. A refreshing take on R&B with a soulful presence; Lindsey’s vocals compare to the likes of R&B queens Sade, Mariah Carey and Anita Baker. Lindsey and her world–class band of musicians create create music lending it's sound to the genre of Soul R&B.

≡★≡ 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. The Soul Songstress is proud to announce the release of her sophomore album, You Change, via Atlanta Records on July 17.
≡★≡ The album is an eloquent collection of work showcasing Webster's expressive vocals and uncanny talent and the two lead singles "Fool Me Once" and "Open Up" are out. ""You Change" shows the growth we've made as artists since our first album; in both our songwriting and who we are as artists. From a delicate song like "Bleed", a song about utter heartbreak, to an anthem like "I'm Strong", we explore many facets of our songwriting and are extremely happy with the result", states Webster.
≡★≡ Growing 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 Bearsville Theater, Levon Helm Studios, Helsinki Hudson, Daryl's House, The Falcon, The Lambs Club, Rockwood Music Hall, The Red Lion, and Groove.
≡★≡ The success of her first album and winning "Best Acoustic Song" in the Independent Music Awards caught the eye of Brian Hurst from UK's soulandjazz.com. ≡★≡ Hurst brought Webster to Atlanta Records, who signed her to release her second album, You Change. ≡★≡ http://www.broadwayworld.com/
