Lindsay Clark finds balance between traditional folk, english folk, country, and her own version of experimental folk that seems to emanate from the depths of her soul. Exquisite and pitch perfect, her music speaks of quiet revelation, with a background of her own multi-tracked vocal arrangements. With influences ranging from the Beach Boys, Joni Mitchell, Elizabeth Cotton, appalachian folk, her classical upbringing, and her father’s record collection, she blends many worlds into a uniquely warm sound with lyrics indicative of a deep and thoughtful soul. She has carved out a unique and vibrant place as an artist with a penchant for rich harmony and a style of self-taught fingerpicking influenced by Nick Drake, John Fahey, and others.
Originally from the small gold rush town of Nevada City, CA, she now resides in Portland, OR. Her sound has been described as “folk with angelic vocals washing over smooth edges” (1859 Magazine). She has shared the stage with musicians such as Casey Dienel (White Hinterland), Nat Baldwin (Dirty Projectors), Ryan Francesconi (Joanna Newsom), Laura Gibson, Alela Diane, and The Lumineers. Her most recent record “Begin” was self-released in 2014; her forthcoming full length record “Crystalline” was engineered and co-produced this year with San Francisco’s Jeremy Harris (guitar/vocals – Vetiver), with plans to be released in September 2018 via Oscarson.
