The Wakefield singer-songwriter with the striking voice takes a bold step on her third album “Chameleon,” broadening her folky campfire roots with rhythmically pulsing songs that aren’t always as sweet and pretty as they sound. Powerful stuff.
— Lynn Saxberg; Entertainment Writer, The Ottawa Citizen

Entering her tenth year as a full time musician, Lindsay spends her time between Canada and Switzerland, playing various venues, festivals and more! With the release of her first record "Sound." in 2007 she garnered much attention, going on to win an award for Ottawa’s “Best New Artist” of 2008, a Canada Council for the Arts Songwriting Grant in 2009 and enough money in 2010 through NewCap Radio’s “The Big Money Shot” to record her second full length album “Monkeys Under Stars” released in June 2011. Lindsay was voted "Best Singer & Song-writer" in Wakefield Quebec in 2012 and her song "Lose My Grip" was nominated for the Colleen Peterson Song-Writing award 2012 as well as placing her as an International Finalist for the NewSong Music Contest also in 2012.

Lindsay has experienced a lot on this musical journey,  from touring records across Canada a few times to having tea with Bono, from being the hired Songstress on a seven day white-water rafting trip in The Canadian Rockies to sharing the stage with Tegan & Sara, Steve Earle, Kathleen Edwards and other musical greats like Ron Hynes.

 

Taught as an opera singer in her teens (even placing Gold in the Rotary Music Festival) she would see that classical music was only an introduction into her musical sphere. Buying her first guitar in St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada, Lindsay would take to Open Stages, catching her first break at the Legendary Fat Cat on George Street. Later, she would record her first album "Sound." in 2007 in Ottawa Ontario, with Producer Dave Draves. It was chosen as the best "Folk Roots" album of 2008 in Ottawa and would gain her attention across Canada by various radio and television stations.  Fast forward through a multitude of stages, both dimly and brightly lit, hours of writing, singing, booking and carting gear, Lindsay has recently released her third record, "Chameleon." Produced by touring artist and multi-instrumentalist, Mr Brock Zeman, at The Big Muddy in Lanark Ontario, this new album features everything from Mandolin, to violin, and from rapper to heavy bass. This time Lindsay was free in her approach to the sound of music and "Chameleon" is just that.

 

GERMAN BIO

Lindsay Ferguson ist eine kanadische Singersongwriterin. Sie verbringt ihre Zeit abwechselnd in Kanada und der Schweiz. Im Moment ist sie in der Schweiz und Umgebung auf Tournee; sie hat kürzlich ihr drittes Album „Chameleon“, über Busted Flat Records veröffentlicht. Dieses Jahr kann sie auf 10 Jahre Erfahrung als professionelle Musikerin zurückblicken. Sie textet und komponiert all ihre Songs selber und reist in der Welt umher, um ihre Musik mit allen zu teilen. Lindsay’s kraftvolle Stimme erzeugt Hühnerhaut und ihr filigranes, autodidaktisch erlerntes Gitarrenspiel überzeugt. Sie lässt ihre Zuhörer in eine andere Welt versinken, nicht zuletzt auch durch ihre charismatische Bühnenpräsenz. In wild-rockigen aber auch in feinen Klängen zu Hause wird Lindsay oft mit Adele, Joss Stone und Joni Mitchel verglichen. In jungen Jahren hat sie Operngesang studiert. Doch ihr Künstlerherz schlägt definitiv Richtung Soul, Folk und Pop.
