About Lindsay Ell:
Named one of The Huffington Post’s “Top Country Artists to Watch in 2016, Lindsay Ell is a triple threat: accomplished musician, unique vocalist and songwriter. The 27-year-old Calgary native learned to play guitar while traveling with her father to country-bluegrass camps as a young girl. Ell honed her craft as a musical stylist and songwriter after being discovered by BTO and The Guess Who’s Randy Bachman (“American Woman” / “Taking Care of Business”) who discovered her at the age of 13. The multi-instrumentalist was soon opening for the likes of Luke Bryan, Buddy Guy, The Band Perry and Keith Urban. Ell received critical acclaim for her singles “Trippin’ On Us,” “Shut Me Up” and “By The Way,” including being named one of Rolling Stone’s “10 Artists You Need to Know” and one of CMT’s Next Women of Country. A 2016 CMT Music Award and Canadian Country Music Award nominee, Ell most recently wowed audiences from coast-to-coast as part of the 2016 CMT Next Women of Country Tour.
