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 May of 2015, she played at the Temecula Valley Balloon and Wine Festival, where Plain White T’s and Daughtry 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.
Before graduating from high school, Lindsey has already shared the stage with some of music’s most popular artists like Hunter Hayes, American Idol’s Casey Abrams, and Lee Rocker of the Stray Cats.
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 is soon to release her debut studio album, of which her single “I Would” has 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, Mumford & Sons, Carrie Underwood, One Republic, Adele, Ingrid Michaelson, John Mayer, and Maroon 5.
