Groovy Folk Rock | Singer/Songwriter
Called “groovy folk-rock” and showcased on stages all over Canada, the music of Lindsey White uses many instruments and one strong voice to craft performances with unmistakable passion and emotional depth. The new, fan-funded Renegade album was produced by Mitch Dorge, (Crash Test Dummies) mastered by João Carvalho (The Tragically Hip, Sarah Slean) released in 2015 with a companion book (of poetry, prose and other writings) and expands the “groovy folk-rock” label to experiment with indefinable genres. Whether intimately on her own or filling the stage with her band, her live presence offers a playground of energetic musicianship and thoughtfully crafted lyrics. She throws similar passion into songwriting and other workshops through inspiration-based music sessions with creative youth. This work landed her a nomination for a Winnipeg Arts Council “Making a Mark” award and a designation as one of the CBC Manitoba Future 40.
Claire Bestland is both a guitar slinger and a truthful storyteller. Picture a young Margaret Atwood with a wild yet precise guitar, channeling the energy of Jimi, Prince or Lindsey Buckingham. Her debut album, La Moreneta, has been described as blues influenced storytelling, was released in stores on October 10, 2015 and reached number 4 on the CKUW (College Radio) charts. Claire has also been commissioned to provide the soundtracks for two upcoming documentary films. You can stream the album, listen to her cinematic compositions, or check out videos online.
