Lindsey Muir

Music has always been a necessary element in Lindsey Muir’s life as far back as the 25-year-old singer can remember. Throughout her life and, most especially now with the recent release of her debut album “You’re Nearer: Love Songs of the ‘30s and ‘40s,” Lindsey is scurrying right towards the music, more than ready to be a prime time player in her own right. She had her festival debut at the Litchfield Jazz Festival this past summer and recently relocated to New York City to further her jazz career.

Her new CD allows her to use her sweet voice to interpret great romantic ballads, with first-class backup from a jazz combo featuring the noted saxophonist and arranger Don Braden. Lindsey’s other simpatico all-star sidekicks are: guitarist Mark Whitfield, pianist Dave Berkman, drummer Winard Harper and bassist John Benitez. She also gets a little help from her friends, trumpeter Terell Stafford (on “Something Happens To Me”) and Brazilian drummer Rogerio Boccato, who adds Latin seasoning to a buoyant bossa rendition of “This Time the Dream’s On Me.”
