Lindsay May is an acoustic guitar and mandolin wielding songstress and prolific songwriter now based in Kamloops, BC.  Folks say she sounds like a mix of k.d.lang, Kathleen Edwards, Alison Krauss and Lucinda Williams and Linda Rondstadt.  And most recently, Margo Timmins (Cowboy Junkies, crossed with Janis Joplin.)


Lindsay has released four albums: ‘Bronze and Blue’ in 2008. ‘Shimmer’, in March 2012 to a Grade A- review from the Vancouver Province; and ‘Girl with Grit’ - an album about not giving up - was released January 2014. Lindsay released her latest album ‘Acoustic 4.0’ in 2018.

Lindsay has toured extensively across Canada, Germany, the Netherlands; the Western US, Vancouver Island, Alberta and Saskatchewan.

She has been asked back every time...

Lindsay has been a serious songwriter for over ten years.  She was accepted into the Bill Henderson/Roy Forbes songwriting workshops in Summerland, BC for five years straight, back in the 2000's, has read every songwriting how-to book she could find and attended every workshop and seminar that was available. She visited Nashville and spent a few summers busking to hone her skills and get feedback.  And it has paid off.

Not only are her songwriting skills top notch, also, her live performance skills keep getting her some prime gigs, including being asked to open for Valdy, John Gorka, American Aquarium and Shari Ulrich and being asked back four times to perform at Harmony Arts Festival and Vancouver's Motown Meltdown charity benefit at the Commodore Ballroom.

"Equipped with an engaging stage presence and a sincere gift for gab, she’s also blessed with a larger-than-life voice and the enthusiasm to drive it home, commanding complete attention." - Roots Music Canada.
