Named one of The Huffington Post’s “Top Country Artists to Watch,” Lindsay Ell is a triple threat: accomplished musician, unique vocalist and songwriter. The Calgary native learned to play guitar while traveling with her father to country-bluegrass camps as a young girl. Ell honed her craft as a musical stylist and songwriter after being discovered by BTO and The Guess Who’s Randy Bachman (“American Woman” / “Taking Care of Business”) who discovered her at the age of 13. The multi-instrumentalist was soon touring alongside the likes of Luke Bryan, Buddy Guy, The Band Perry and Keith Urban, as well as wowing audiences as Carrie Underwood’s guitar player live on the “50th Annual CMA Awards” and holding her own alongside icon Melissa Etheridge on Skyville Live.
A 2016 CMT Music Award and multiple Canadian Country Music Award nominee, Ell exhilarated audiences from coast-to-coast as part of the 2016 CMT Next Women of Country Tour, Brad Paisley’s 2017 and 2018 WEEKEND WARRIOR WORLD TOUR. She will soon join Sugarland’s Still The Same Tour for Summer 2018 and select dates of Keith Urban’s Graffiti U World Tour this fall. Ell’s first full-length album The Project debuted at No. 1 on the Country Album Sales Chart in August and was lauded as Billboard’s ‘Best Country Album of 2017.’ Her current single “Criminal” was the Most Added song at U.S. Country radio on its impact date, is currently Top 20 and recently became her first No. 1 song on the Canadian Country Radio Charts.
