OFFICIAL BIO

Lindsay Clark finds balance between traditional folk, english folk, country, and her own version of experimental folk that seems to stem from her soul. Exquisite and pitch perfect, her music speaks of quiet revelation, with a background of (usually her own) multi-tracked vocal arrangements. With influences ranging from the Beach Boys, Elizabeth Cotton, Joni Mitchell, appalachian folk, her classical upbringing, and her father's record collection, she blends many worlds into a uniquely warm sound. She has carved out a unique and vibrant place as an artist with her penchant for poetry, rich harmony, and and a style of self-taught fingerpicking influenced by Nick Drake, John Fahey, and others. Popmatters called Crystalline (2018) "a rare exhibition of the weight that minimalism can bear in contemporary, reflective folk music." Atwood Magazine called her first single "a piece of poetry in and of itself." She draws inspiration from the natural world, self inquiry, relationship and human emotion.

Originally from the small gold rush town of Nevada City, CA, she now resides in Portland, OR. Her sound has been described as “folk with angelic vocals washing over smooth edges” (1859 Magazine). She has shared the stage with musicians such as Alela Diane, Nat Baldwin (Dirty Projectors), Ryan Francesconi (Joanna Newsom), Laura Gibson, Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith. Her most recent effort was engineered and co-produced this year with San Francisco’s Jeremy Harris (guitar/vocals - Vetiver/Devendra Banhart), with additional work from Portland's own (Bizarre Star Strings and artists of Mama Bird Recording Co). “Crystalline” was released in fall 2018 via boutique German label Oscarson (available on CD/LP/DIGITAL).

RECENT PRESS

Crystalline is a rare exhibition of the weight that minimalism can bear in contemporary, reflective folk music.
— Popmatters (2018)
Little Dove’ blossoms with the slow, carefully thought-out addition of pianos, flutes, and most important of all, Clark’s emotive singing voice. A piece of poetry in and of itself, ‘Little Dove’ is an homage to innocence and truth.
— Atwood Magazine (2018)
Sounding somewhere between the pastoral folk of Meg Baird and the baroque chill of Judee Sill, Clark’s compositions are nothing short of beautiful.

While [her] style and sound may have many roots in a deep well of excellent influences, she takes these familiar sounds and completely makes them her own. Her powerful lyrics combined with her songs’ deeply intimate arrangements and production style help to make every track here feel as though they are [parts of her] soul.
— Record Crates United (2018)
