“In the short time since we were first introduced to indie artist Lindsey Saunders, we already in danger of becoming a lifelong fan. What some have called a ‘triple threat’ (a statement we are happy to underwrite) Saunders self-confidence is backed up by a voice that walks a tightrope between a raspy alto and a quavering vocal runs, prodigious, nuanced acoustic rhythm guitar smackdowns, and taut, unorthodox roots-inspired songwriting.”
Music Zeitgeist February Artist of the Month 2014 Lindsey Saunders
‘ "[Miles Before Sleep”, through Saunders's heartfelt guitar work, possesses more raw emotion than many four or five piece bands.’
Colorado Music Buzz November 2014
“Lindsey’s style is very much an indie pop-rock style with inflections of country, chord driven melodies and infectious toe-tapping strumming – and I should mention delivered with a mixed plectrum and plucked right hand technique (the first artist with a plectrum on Classical Guitar n Stuff!!).”
Nicole Rodgers, Classical Guitar N’ Stuff Australia

The instrumental “Miles Before Sleep” was released November 4, 2014 . Vastly different from her indie pop debut in 2012, her talents shine as a composer in her own right. Geared towards the classical guitar listeners, the four movements were born out of Catherine Tiso’s contemporary dance Diverge/Connect (2013 – Chicago). The composition has received worldwide reviews as a classical crossover hit. The song “Acceptance” from the release was recently included in the Roadtrip Nation – Participants Media show The Road to Teach is currently being aired on PilotTV. Both “Nothing Normal” and “Miles Before Sleep” have been added to Pandora Radio’s digital library of notable music.
Work has begun on her next indie pop release with Grammy-winning Producer/Engineer John Seymour, whose credits include U2, Dave Matthews and Santana and Kenny Aronoff on drums whose list of collaborations includes Bruce Springsteen, Ray Charles, Melissa Etheridge, Michelle Branch, Sheryl Crow, and Ringo Starr to name a few.
