Dreaming With A Broken Heart - Lindsay Ell
Our LCM featured artist tonight is one of the fast rising stars of US Country the wonderful Lindsay Ell. Our LCM #SongOfTheDay is her latest single a cover of 'Dreaming With A Broken Heart' taken from her excellent brand new fantastic reworking of John Mayer's 'Continuum' album released on May 25th.. Also check out her great debut album 'The Project'.
For rising star Lindsay Ell, her debut album on Stoney Creek Records has been a long time coming … but you can’t rush personal discovery. Sent on a mission to unleash the vibrant, soul-bearing country artist long predicted by fans and critics alike, Lindsay's journey is now complete – and she calls the result simply, 'The Project'.
Comprised of 12 gripping, heart-on-her-sleeve tracks and produced by Sugarland’s Kristian Bush, The Project is the musical calling card Lindsay been working toward her whole life – from her childhood in Calgary, Alberta; through her time opening shows for blues legend Buddy Guy; and even with attention-grabbing country singles “Trippin’ On Us” and “By the Way.”
Grooving, diverse, and emotionally charged, it’s easy to hear what Lindsay means. The Project reveals every aspect of her abundant talent – from her fiery guitar prowess to her crisp, inviting vocals … and even her new knack for vulnerable song craft.
It’s funky, bluesy, and full of pop-country sweetness, but also delicate and – at times – brutally honest, as Lindsay's heart is placed front and center on each track. She embraces the anything-goes fun of country’s future but also holds fast to its traditions, focusing on real instruments and co-writing nine of The Project’s songs to create something both unique and self-assured. For the first time, Lindsay's music feels 100 percent “Lindsay,” and part of the reason for that is the growing up she’s done over the past few years.
The young star has traveled the world with The Band Perry and Luke Bryan, showcased her multi-instrumental dexterity as one of CMT’s Next Women of Country, and is currently trading guitar solos with Brad Paisley on his 2017 Weekend Warrior World Tour. Plus, she and country radio personality Bobby Bones went public about falling for each other, leading to an outpouring of support and inspiring her to open up like never before on her critically-acclaimed 2017 EP, Worth the Wait.
