Lindsay Clark

English folk & country

Lindsay Clark

Lindsay Clark finds balance between traditional and english folk, country, and her own version of experimental folk that seems to come 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 vibrant place as an artist with a 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 the first single, Little Dove, "a piece of poetry in and of itself."

Originally from the small gold rush town of Nevada City, CA, she now resides in Portland, OR. After relocating to Portland in 2009, she self-released two albums, recorded in Sellwood with Sean Ogilvie (Laura Gibson). 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 last year with Jeremy Harris (Vetiver/Devendra Banhart). “Crystalline” was released in September 2018 via boutique German label Oscarson. She is currently writing, with plans to record a new album in 2020.

Becca's second solo album Prisma will be released August 7th, 2019. In stark contrast to Terrain, Prisma is spacious, cinematic, synth-focused & experimental.

Prisma will be released alongside a book of piano sheet music which is available to purchase here.
