Lindsay Clark finds balance between traditional folk, english folk, country, and her own version of experimental folk that seems to stem from her soul. 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.'
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, and 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). Crystalline was released in September 2018 via boutique German label Oscarson.
“‘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.”
“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 [their] deeply intimate arrangements and production style help to make every track here feel as though they are (parts of her) soul."
