Biography

Unique. Classic. Prophetic. Radical. Anointed. Gifted. Soothing… these are all words that are used to describe the voice, the ministry, the man…Lindsay Orr.

Lindsay is a native of Cincinnati, Ohio where it was definitely recognizable from birth that music was apart of him. His grandmother would say that he could dance before he could walk, and, sing before he could talk. Being born into a family full of basketball players, God truly had a different direction for him early on. By high school, Lindsay had begun what would be his lifeline of musical conquests. Being the first student in the history of the high school to graduate participating in both concert and gospel choirs, concert and marching bands, and starting and maintaining a ground breaking step team of 100 students consecutively, and being one of the stars of the track team for all four years, one would think retirement would be close by. Although much of high school was great foundation for him, Lindsay wanted more and decided that going to college for music was the best route to take.

Lindsay first headed to Central State University where he received a scholarship for his service in singing with the Grammy nominated Central State University Chorus under the leadership of William H. Caldwell. During that tenure, Lindsay was able to perform with the Cincinnati Pops and Indianapolis Pops Orchestras, travel on two national tours, and recorded an international distributed album of “Porgy & Bess the Opera” with the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra.

Lindsay later matriculated to Syracuse University under a vocal music scholarship. Syracuse afforded him the ability to test his skills by becoming members of three choirs: The Syracuse Men’s Chorus, The University Singers, and B.C.C.E. Gospel Choir respectively. While in all three choirs, Lindsay became one of the premier soloists. He was also able to become the first student music director for B.C.C.E and under his supervision and direction, B.C.C.E. recorded their first album in over 25 years. Syracuse University also is where he received his calling into the music ministry.

Lindsay was a founding member of the gospel group, Simple Faith, which hails from Cincinnati, Ohio.. Simple Faith drew its name from the fundamental truth given in the word of God in Hebrews 11:6, “For without faith it is impossible to please God.” If there is one thing Lindsay and the group desired to do, it is just that; to please the Fathers heart. Simple Faith had shared the same stage and/or opened for ministers of music whom they admire such as: Shirley Murdock, Byron Cage, Pastor Rodney Posey and Praise, Jonathan Dunn of Springfield, OH, Virtue, Tonex, Tarsha’ McMillan-Hamilton of Cleveland, Ohio, Lisa McClendon, Deborah Killings, Anthony Hamilton, Lindon Phillips and Hearts of Worship of Chicago, IL and Percy Bady. This is something that Lindsay has desired to do since he could remember; to minister before the nations.

Lindsay is proud to be called different, peculiar; unique…this opens up the mind to receive what the Lord has for every listener. Lindsay continues to be a vessel the Lord can use as He pleases. Lindsay does workshops with youth ministries, youth and young adult music departments, and workshops as a whole. If your tired of the normalcy of doing church day after day, Lindsay will bring a breath of fresh air to your ministry of any kind.
