"The Bandstand: Lindsay Sample"

With a mouth like Dennis Leary, an uncanny pop sensability, and a dry wit that could parch the entire cast of a Disney Channel TV movie, Lindsay Sample sings songs that make you think "did she really just say that?" Though she's run into trouble with her provocative lyrics before, it doesn't seem to stop her from writing songs that give a middle finger to censorship.

"Such a Lady" and "Everybody Loves an Audience," (both available for listening on myspace.com/lindsayjosample) are prime examples of her social repartee. She takes a page from the Ben Folds handbook of matching catchy, sing-song melodies and harmonies with sarcastic yet evocative lyrics on the mindset of people today. "Such a Lady" could be a feminist anthem if people appreciated a good satire like they used to. And it's almost sad that the content of "Everybody Loves an Audience" could hold true in Hollywood and Texas (listen hard, you'll understand what I'm talking about).

Recently, Lindsay and her band made it to the second round of Emergenza which will showcase its bands on December 14th at the Middle East Upstairs. We all know how this works, so show up and support Berklee's resident critique of community standards and household stereotypes.

Bio

Lindsay is a singer-songwriter from Pittsburgh, PA, and studied composition and performance at Kent State University, the Boston Conservatory, and Berklee College of Music. Coming into Berklee with a heavy background in jazz and classical influence, Lindsay focused on songwriting and performance, and began combining acoustic folk with indie lyrics and beat.

She has worked with Carole King, Sheryl Crow, the Black Eyed Peas, James Taylor, Greg Banaszak, Phil Wilson, Pat Pattison, and Bon Jovi.

Recently, her song "Such a Lady" was reviewed by a censorship panel at Berklee for its on-the-edge sexually-explicit lyrics, and helped to push boundaries for the recording department.
