This past spring, Highlander toured the Northeast as the opening act for Tritt’s sold out tour, and later sold out the Bluebird Café in Nashville. In June, Highlander secured a spot on the BIC Soleil Stage during CMA Fest, and at BamaJam in the company of Zac Brown Band, Kid Rock and Tim McGraw. She later joined Steel Magnolia for the “Brothers of the Sun Tour” pre-party at the Hard Rock Café for the Second Harvest of Middle Tennessee fundraiser, and headlined the St. Albans Riverfest outside of Charleston, W.Va.
A graduate of Belmont University’s Music Business program, Highlander joined the Agency for the Performing Arts’ (APA) roster in the fall of 2010 after agent Jeff Howard judged her in a talent competition at the Wildhorse Saloon in Nashville.
Howard comments on the country singer’s artistry: “Not only can Lyndsey Highlander belt out melodies, but she has a VOICE, meaning she has something real to communicate to her audience. This isn’t your typical country act. Lyndsey Highlander is a true Artist that really reaches the country audience—and beyond—while having a lot of fun in the process.”
Originally from New Kent, Va., a suburb of Richmond nestled between two Chesapeake Bay rivers, Highlander draws much of her inspiration from fellow Virginia native Patsy Cline, creating a sound that blends Cline’s traditional soul with the spunk of Bonnie Raitt’s rock ‘n’ roll.
Highlander's new EP, produced by Kevin Murphy, is available now on her official website (lyndseyhighlander.com) and itunes.
