Southern California born and raised, singer/songwriter Lindsey Carrier, has quite simply made music her life. This spirited, green-eyed twenty one year old, has an inherent nature to stay true to herself. She grew up in the picturesque town of Temecula which hosts a diverse music culture that helped nurture her vocal gift. With pop rock influence, Lindsey’s sound is organic with a rich quality.
Though shy, from the beginning Lindsey’s stage presence displayed great promise and heart. After her breakthrough performance as the lead in her middle school drama production of “Oklahoma,” she made the decision to pursue a future filled with music. She became a regular performer at a popular local singing venue in Old Town Temecula’s historic Mercantile Building called “The Merc.” Before she knew it, she was lending her vocal talents on many stages and venues.
In early 2016, Lindsey fulfilled a dream and was a contestant on the Farewell Season of American Idol. She received three yes’s from the celebrity judges, who then gave her the “golden ticket” to Hollywood. Her journey on American Idol was a very exciting time in her career. Lindsey performs throughout Southern California at music festivals, wineries, and charity events. In 2015, 2016, and 2017, she performed at the Temecula Valley Balloon and Wine Festival, where many popular artists headlined.
She has first place awards in several local and international vocal competitions. In 2013 her original song “Holding on to All of You” received nomination for best pop song for Hollywood Music in Media Awards.
As a vocalist, Lindsey has proven to be a versatile talent, successfully delivering everything from emotional ballads to edgy country tunes. In 2011 and 2012, she headed to Nashville, Tennessee to learn all about the history of music there, and explore performance and songwriting opportunities. Lindsey has shared the stage with talented artists Hunter Hayes, American Idol’s Casey Abrams and Bucky Covington, Lee Rocker of the Stray Cats, and Maggie Rose. She has been fortunate to support artists including Daughtry, Plain White T’s, John Waite, Neon Trees, Elliot Yamin, Lee DeWyze, Gin Blossoms and BUSH.
To develop her original music, she has worked with writers who have teamed up with Perfect Storm Music Group, who in 2013 won a Grammy for Kelly Clarkson’s “Stronger.” Lindsey officially released her debut album “Leave It All Behind” in February 2017, of which multiple songs have received radio airplay. Her music integrates styles inspired by Sara Bareilles and Katy Perry. Other artists who all help contribute to her unique sound include Jessie J, Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, One Republic, Adele, Ingrid Michaelson, John Mayer, and Maroon 5.
