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.”

Lindsey has impeccable pitch, clarity of diction, silken phrasing, breath control, rhythmic ease, a pretty, pinging timbre, harmonic sophistication and a subtle sense of dynamics. She projects the feeling that she’s loved, lived with, and been deeply moved by the 11 songs on her album. Part of the secret of her winning personal style is that she can sound sweet and innocent, yet somehow simultaneously sophisticated and emotional.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
