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 include punk, soul, bossa nova and more.
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.

“Renegade sounds like the love child of Regina Spektor’s Far and Florence and the Machine’s Lungs… a well-crafted experimental album.”

“The Winnipeg-based singer-songwriter is an educator who loves sharing the power and thrill of music with kids–and her own songs are suffused with that same sense of elemental joy.”
– John Kendle (Winnipeg Free Press)
