Biography

Lindsey Yung is in a class all her own. A truly remarkable singer/songwriter, she has a voice that will stop you in your tracks and lyrics that have a way of resonating with the very core of her listeners. Her new album, “Opal Essence” showcases her uncanny ability to write songs that are infectious, moving and unique. She wrote all 10 songs on the album independently, plays both piano and ukulele, and has a voice that has been called “a beautifully refined and powerful instrument” (San Diego Troubadour).

Lindsey was born, raised and is currently residing in San Diego, CA, although you’ll often find her over in Maui where the source of inspiration for her latest album originated. She has been singing since she was a child, making her professional debut at age 5 in the musical “South Pacific.” The rest, as they say, is history.

Lindsey’s music has received recognition on many levels. She won the 2006 Los Angeles Music Award for the category: Female Singer/Songwriter of the Year and was nominated by popular vote for a 2007 San Diego H.A.T. award (Honoring Acoustic Talent Award) in the category of "best vocalist.” She received a 2008 “honor award” for her song “With Every Breath” from the 9th annual Great American Song Contest and was nominated for a 2008 Asian Heritage Award in the category of “performing arts.” Most recently, "Opal Essence" was included on the coveted list of "Best Albums of 2008" put out by KGRL fm.

Lindsey’s new album is a product of almost 2 years of work. She’ll be the first to tell you that she put everything she is into it. The end result is a beautiful collection of her finest work and a pure reflection of who she is.

Lyrics

TOUCHSTONE

Written By: Lindsey Yung

He’s never had much of anything
But he screams for joy for the shoes on his feet

He’s never known much of anything
But he teaches me every time we meet

We need more
Of the simple things
The smaller things
That connect us to the bigger things
A saving grace
To offer us
A guiding ray
To lead us when we go astray

He’s never lived outside of the pain
He bears everyday without one complaint

He still remains inside innocence
And he holds a light which they cannot taint

We need more
Of the simple things
The smaller things
That connect us to the bigger things
A saving grace
To offer us
A guiding ray
To lead us when we go astray

He is for me
A chance to be
Better than I’ve been
He reminds me that
I cannot forget
To stop the hurry
Bask in the sunlight
Thank the source of life

We need more
Of the simple things
The smaller things
That connect us to the bigger things
A saving grace
To offer us
A guiding ray
To lead us when we go astray

He never asks why it’s been so hard
He won’t be the one you’ll find sulking in blame
You’ll discover he brings out the best in you
And when he’s away you’ll find that he remains with you

It Doesn't Get Better Than This

Written By: Lindsey Yung

Words fail me
I can’t describe
This beautiful
Wild, winding ride
I know without any doubt
That I am right where I belong

Seascapes ahead
The sand as my bed
You are next to me
It doesn’t get better than this
Salt on my skin
This sense from within
Tells me I am home
It doesn’t get better than this

I awaken
When nature is near
Static fades
And I can finally hear
You take me into your arms
And all my troubles soon subside

Seascapes ahead
The sand as my bed
You are next to me
It doesn’t get better than this
Salt on my skin
This sense from within
Tells me I am home
It doesn’t get better than this

If you trace my steps
You’ll see I’m homeward bound

Seascapes ahead
The sand as my bed
You are next to me
It doesn’t get better than this
Salt on my skin
This sense from within
Tells me I am home
It doesn’t get better than this
