Nevada City, CA – In October of 2017, LINDSAY BELLOWS released her debut WAKE TO DREAM EP. The magic of Lindsay’s artistry is immediately apparent when she is on stage: Songs are built from scratch, bringing together melodies, harmonies, and percussion using only her voice and a loop pedal, intimately revealing one part at a time to the audience. Given her background as a one-woman/loop pedal powered songwriter and performer, the WAKE TO DREAM EP started as an all-acapella project; however, during the recording process at Cedarsong Sound in Northern CA, Lindsay and Grammy Award-winning engineer/producer Spencer Williams agreed that, without the excitement of building a song from scratch in a live setting, the recordings needed something more. As a result, collaborators were invited to add instrumentation and embellishment to the original vocal loops, finally creating the perfect groove.

On the WAKE TO DREAM EP, Ananda Vaughan rocks the guitar, Jared May slays the bass, Makila Wind adds in the twinkling sounds of a Rhodes and a baby grand piano, Beau Askew jams on his kit, Jason O’Keefe adds layers of percussion, and producer Spencer Williams ties it all together. Williams also mixed the album with input from Jason Kendall, and the project was mastered by Oz Fritz.

Influenced by singers as diverse as Etta James, Stevie Nicks, Jill Scott, Lauryn Hill, Ani DiFranco, Zap Mama, and Adele, LINDSAY BELLOWS crafts authentic and sincere compositions that showcase an artist wise beyond her years. Her music provides an unflinching view of her own journey away from the struggles of the urban rat race, and into the golden foothills and redwoods where she finally found a place to call home. LINDSAY has not always been a professional musician, but spent years working as a management consultant for a large global company in a repeating pattern of waking, working, eating, and sleeping. Her songs share her awakening to a life of greater joy and meaning, and plant seeds of encouragement for others to do the same.

When performing LINDSAY BELLOWS weaves together light-hearted folk/pop with fierce R&B vocals to create music that ignites the spirit and soothes the soul. A naked solo is gradually dressed up with rich vocal layers until this one-woman act begins to sound more like a soaring choir or a pulsing multi-piece band. Whether using her sublime looping technology on her solo sets or fronting a full band, LINDSAY BELLOWS’ revelatory tones sing us out of the city and into the starry skies. All-original songs are driven by her raw, impassioned vocals, along with dynamic instrumentation that blends playful percussion with melodic keyboards and guitar. Her lyrics delve into her intimate personal sojourn and spin a story of unrest – of being caught between two worlds – serving as an inspiring reminder of the power that music can have in transforming our lives.

The WAKE TO DREAM debut release could not have come at a better time. As the world is engulfed in turbulence and chaos, Lindsay’s music gives us two things we need: hope and a way through. Her lush and liberating songs are delivered with verve and vitality -- they can range from deep and vulnerable to flirtatious and clever, but never fail to remind us to let our troubles shape us, fuel our activism and our joy, and to dance, dance, dance.

The new WAKE TO DREAM EP was released digitally on October 19, 2017, followed by a physical CD release on November 17, 2017.
