At the early age of three years Lindsey Webster began her singing career. With such natural talent Lindsey discovered the Cello and began her classical training at the young age of 8. As a teenager Lindsey auditioned and was accepted to the Fiorello H LaGuardia School for Performing Arts. In addition she began to get a lot of work recording as a session singer for various R&B and Hip Hop Artists.
Lindsey started her own band in 2009. At just twenty-four years Lindsey Webster has shared the stage with Grammy-award winning musicians and artists. She is singing on a grammy nominated CD for 2012 (with the Jimmy Sturr Orchestra) and has recorded with multiple music legends. Now, Lindsey is gradually laying the bricks for a path of success all her own. Lindsey has traveled across the country, playing in famed venues such as Carnegie Hall, Musikfest, Summerfest, The Elephant Room/Austin, Falcon Live, Bearsville Theater, The Brooklyn Bowl, The Lambs Club and many more. With a powerful four octave vocal range, Lindsey’s sound is a blend of Soul, Funk, R&B, with soulful blues influences. Scott Sharrard, the lead guitarist of the Gregg Allman Band, claims that “Miss Webster’s got soul to burn” and that “Lindsey’s got the kind of pipes that will peel the paint of a Cadillac and will make a blind man leave home”.
