"Lindsey Auditions for ABC"

In June 2006, Lindsey sent a home video of herself singing 2 songs to ABC for the new show, "The One, making of a music star". Thinking she probably wouldn't ever hear anything, she surprisingly got a call back from one of the producers, complimenting her on her singing and how impressed they were. They invited her to fly to Los Angeles to go through a live audition for all the producers of the show, which she gladly accepted. Although, she did not make the show she was honored to be 1 of 50 people, from across the U.S. that was selected by the producers, as they made their final selection of 11 contestants. This experience was a big boost of confidence for Lindsey, knowing that she was one of the "best of the best" being considered for the show. Lindsey gives a big "Thank You, to everyone who supports her and cheers her on.

Lindsey's says, now it time to settle back down and work a little harder on her goal of being a sucessful music entertainer. - Barry Sweatt


"Lindsey Lea"

Lindsey Lea
by Don Thomason - The Amplifier Bowling Green, KY

Female youth and teen country singers are as common in every community as, say, conversations about the weather. Even the ones with big voices are frequent, although most of them seem to be just loud. But a big voiced teenage country singer who knows how to use her voice is worth the trouble to find. Indeed, it took Martina McBride several years and albums to find how to best use her incredible pipes. This area has taken to Lindsey Lea, who has built a following with her charming looks, hefty pipes, and her way around a song that belies her age.
Bowling Green native Lindsey Lea has made a splash by her regular performances on area showcase stages Libby’s and Calvin Ray’s. Taking steps beyond the local star scene, she has started sitting in with established bands and performers, which in one instance got her opening for Blake Shelton earlier this year. The next month has Lindsey appearing at CMA Fest (formerly known as Fan Fair) in Nashville June 9-12, at Thunderfest 2005 at the Corvette Amphitheater July 2 in concert with Deen Collier and the Freedom Fighters, and with the group Bad Grades at both the Woodburn Barn Fest on June 25 and the Green River Catfish Festival on July 4.
In her progression from her initial public performances five years ago at the Dairy-O in Bowling Green's Sugar Maple Square, Lindsey Lea has developed a warm, commanding voice that is solidly country yet versatile enough for both Patsy Cline and modern women’s country. Lindsey told the Amplifier that she went from singing karaoke to singing in bands to recording in studios.
Her popularity increased particularly with her performances at Libby’s. Lindsey said she started appearing at the locally famous restaurant and music venue in October 2004. The more she made regular appearances, the more the regulars took to her and the more became regular Lindsey Lea fans. When Libby Knight passed away, Lindsey started performing at Calvin Ray’s in Leitchfield; many of the Libby’s regulars traveled to Grayson County to watch Lindsey perform there.
Several of those Lindsey Lea regulars made the shorter trip to Chaney’s Dairy Barn on April 22 to see Lindsey sing with Bad Grades. Opening the next night on April 23 with Ronnie Murphy for Blake Shelton at the Little Nashville Opry in Nashville, Indiana was an “awesome” experience according to Lindsey. She said that everyone was nice toward her there, from the audience seeing her for the first time to Shelton’s band to Blake Shelton himself.
From June through to Fourth of July weekend, Lindsey Lea has many profile-raising shows on her calendar. She makes her first appearance at CMA Fest from June 9-12 at Nashville Convention Center. She will be signing autographs at the Camping World booth, who is sponsoring her at the event; while she is not singing, she will have her demos to give away to festival goers. Her July 2 participation in the Deen Collier and the Freedom Fighters concert during Thunderfest 2005 will put her, along with an assemblage of some of the area’s top musical talent, in front of thousands of people at the Corvette Amphitheater. In addition, Lindsey will grace the festival stage twice with country band Bad Grades at the Woodburn Barn Fest, held June 25 at Chaney’s Dairy Barn, and at the Green River Catfish Festival in Morgantown on July 4.
Lindsey continues to perform at Calvin Ray’s. A Lindsey Lea original music recording project is currently underway, being recorded at Dave Smith’s studio (who has worked with Mel McDaniel) in Hermitage and also at Soundstage in Nashville. Lindsey will start college this fall at Middle Tennessee State University, planning to have a music industry major, either business or engineering. While she professes a desire to be a recording artist, Lindsey maintains that she wants to be a part of the music business “whether singing or helping someone else out.”
When asked what motivates her, Lindsey answered “every time I get on stage - I get a big adrenaline rush.” Whatever role she winds up playing in music, Lindsey appears to have a diversified, level headed approach to finding a role to play in music, and it should be interesting to see how this talented vocalist gets to where she’s going. For now, fans can go to her website www.lindseylea.com to track her show calendar and news. She has audio files on Audiostreet.net, cdBaby.com and Sonicbids.com which is linked from her website.

Bio

As most little girls with big hopes and dreams, Lindsey started singing around the house at an early age. As a child she would use a hair bush for a microphone, the fire place hearth as a stage and pretend of performing a concert before thousands of her fans. Little did she know that would be her career goal. It was a third grade school talent show that sparked the fire in her to be an entertainer. Singing Faith Hill's,"It Matters To Me", she took 1st place and from that point on she knew what she wanted to do in life. With music always in the center of her life, she has matured into a beautiful young lady with a strong, powerful voice that's far ahead her age.

At the age of 13 she recorded her first demo CD with the help of hit songwriter, Dennis Adkins (who wrote "Ace In The Hole" for George Strait). With the help of Dennis and song-pitcher, Matt Lindsey, they were able to get her demo heard by RCA Records and to Randy Goodman at Lyric Street Records. Although, neither Label was signing young female talent, they responded very favorably to her honest sound and sweet tone and wanted to hear more as she matured. Her demo also landed her, her first TV debut on the "Ralph Emery Show" where she performed two of her songs, live, on the morning show, and was interviewed by Charlie Chase and Loriann Crook. A memorable event she'll never forget.

Soon after, Lindsey felt she needed to take something great and make it better. She contacted, Kim Wood Sandusky, a well-known and highly respected vocal coach, who did just that. Kim took Lindsey under her wing and helped her develop a voice that is strong, full, and honest, all ceases when one is ensnared by the pure heart and soul of singer Lindsey Lea. Fully loaded with tone, pitch, and energy, her voice immediately captures the hearts of the audience and leaves them wanting more. For anyone who has ever heard her sing, she forces all heads to stop, look, and listen. Lindsey is bound to captivate and inspire everyone that hears her.

Lindsey has worked hard, setting her sights and grooming herself to be a successful music artist. She has performed many talent shows, country music theaters, fundraisers, and special events. When she was 16, she auditioned for Libby Knight, who owned a country music theater, called "Live at Libby's" in Daysville, KY. "Libby's" had a reputation as one who helped today's superstars get their start, such as; JoDee Messina, Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood, Tracy Lawrence and the list go on. Lindsey quickly won the heart of Libby, he recognized her vast talent and immediately put her on the show, where she performed every Saturday night until his death in October 2004. Libby told everyone Lindsey Lea would be the next one to leave his nest, to go on to be a superstar.

Lindsey is also called upon frequently to perform her beautiful version of "The National Anthem" so impressive, that she was ask to sing at the Kentucky State Capital for the opening sessions in Frankfort, KY. for the State House & Senate. Lindsey is thankful to God for the beautiful gift that has been given her. She loves to sing more than anything, after each song she sings you can tell she's a natural and was born to sing and entertain. She is a growing young artist and has matured with her own vocal style, range, and stage presentation. Her presence and performance are that of a seasoned young lady who knows what she wants.

Hit songwriter/producer Ron Harbin, has helped Lindsey produced a four song demo, which caught the ear of Mark Alan Springer. Mark made his name as a great songwriter with No. 1 hits by Kenny Chesney, Tanya Tucker, and Trivis Tritt. Currently, Lindsey is working with Mark and hit songwriter, A.J. Masters and the staff at Masville Music, looking for songs for a CD she would like to have completed next year, with hopes that she can draw attention from Nashville's Record Executives. Also, another song writer, Phillip Douglas introduced Lindsey to Richie McDonald of Lonestar. Richie was impressed with her talent and they recorded a duet demo called "Let Me Love Again".

Lindsey has built a strong growing fan base and positive recognition from some of industries top songwriters & producers. She is thankful to all that as helped this far. Especially, to God and family. Lindsey is highly motivated and knows what she wants in life, she knows the only way to accomplish her dream will be through hard work and dedication. With faith and a little fate, she believes it will happen.
