Lindsey White is a groovy folk-rocking energy machine; throwing similar passion into writing and recording new music, performing live on her own or with her band and spending time working with creative youth.
White uses the piano and guitar to craft songs, but also sings and plays the flute, violin and accordion (among other things). Her music has been showcased on stages all over Canada and various festivals throughout Manitoba. Previous albums: “What’s New.” (2005) and “This is Now.” (2007) were followed by several singles and other studio recordings. The new full length album, “Renegade” (May 28, 2015) was produced by Mitch Dorge (Crash Test Dummies) along with Alasdair Dunlop (bass) and Joe Curtis (guitar). Renegade expands the “groovy folk-rock” label to include baroque pop, punk, soul, bossa nova, alternative and other genres.
Always looking for ways to make music more accessible and bridge gaps where artistic programming may not be readily available, her “Play and Sing” Programming has been well received at various educational centers and Community programs. This work also landed her a nomination for a Winnipeg Arts Council “Making a Mark” award and a designation as one of the CBC Manitoba Future 40 (an award celebrating Manitoba’s new generation of leaders, builders and change-makers under the age of 40).
She has co-ordinated and facilitated many new music programs and written hundreds of songs with Winnipeg’s talented youth. Her present faculty position at the Manitoba Conservatory of Music and Arts involves facilitating outreach music programs and songwriting workshops; she also lends her participation as part of the steering committee for the Music For All Alliance and coordinates youth music sessions while on tour in other parts of Canada.
She believes that the creative spark exists in everyone and loves to help others discover their inspiration.
