Music at the Frist: Lindsay George, jazz vocalist
With a stunning voice, intense spirit, and honest lyrics, Belmont grad and Nashville Jazz Workshop alumna, Lindsay George has created a jazz pop sound for a new generation of listeners. On her latest project, a pop CD titled “Who Would I Have to Be?” Lindsay embarked on a year-long collaboration with chart topping artist/producer Jamie Slocum. They are a natural songwriting team – Lindsay writing unique, honest, and compelling lyrics, and Slocum offering natural talent for composing memorable melodies and innovative arrangements.
Slocum brings experience as an artist and writer in almost every genre of music; Lindsay cites the jazz greats, Johnny Mercer and Duke Ellington, for her lyrical inspiration. Lindsay’s pop influences come from all generations – the Beatles, to Sixpence None the Richer, to Stevie Wonder, and contemporary indie favorites like the Raveonettes and Band of Horses. Expect to hear these influences woven together when she performs at the Frist.
