Song: Reindeer Touch Down
Artist: Lindsay May
Album: Sweet Cinnamon
Christmas Album Out Now
Lindsay May is an acoustic guitar and mandolin wielding songstress with itchy feet and home base with a lake view and wood stove! A prolific songwriter with a direct connection to her muse, Lindsay wrote enough material for her and Mark Gordon to record and produce two americana/alt-country albums at once. Her second and third albums. Folks says she sounds like a mix of k.d.lang, Kathleen Edwards, Alison Krauss and Lucinda Williams and Linda Rondstadt. And most recently, Margo Timmins (Cowboy Junkies, crossed with Janis Joplin.)
Not only are her songwriting skills top notch, also, her live performance skills keep getting her some prime gigs including being asked to open for Valdy, John Gorka, American Aquarium and Shari Ulrich.
