Lindsay West is a south-London based singer and songwriter who has played and written with bands including the Nextmen and Matthew and the Atlas and is part of the alt-folk band Love.Stop.Repeat. Her influences come from the bare-all romanticism of Joni Mitchell, the story telling of Tracy Chapman and the eccentric playfulness of Kate Bush. She hopes she fits somewhere amidst the likes of Feist, Regina Spektor, Laura Veirs and Cat Power.
Lindsay has a self-released album (Cramond Island) and two EPs on Make Your Own Adventure Records (Fall and We Came in from the Sea) under her belt and is about to release a third EP with MYOA. This will feature Lindsay West Band, who bring a bigger, more complex, dynamic and sometimes darker sound to the music. Cerys Matthews played Lindsay’s song ‘The Rain’ on her BBC 6 Music show in August 2013 and ‘Newcastle’ was featured several times on Tom Robinson’s own Slashmusic radio show.
Lindsay West Band are booking shows throughout 2014. If you are interested in having the band at your venue, please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
