When blues-rocking, soul-singing drummer, songwriter and bandleader Lindsay Beaver takes the stage, she makes an immediate and unforgettable impression. Standing front and center at her kit, singing every song from the depths of her soul, she delivers blues, r&b and old school rock ‘n’ roll with punk rock energy, and sings with a voice brimming with attitude and soulfulness. With influences ranging from Little Richard to The Ramones, from Billie Holiday to Queens of the Stone Age, Lindsay has crafted a timeless sound and personal style that simply cannot be denied.
Beaver possesses an old soul at the young age of 33. She is a classically-trained vocalist and a jazz-trained drummer with a deep love and knowledge of roots music, from blues to jazz to r&b ballads to raucous rock ‘n’ roll. Her Alligator Records debut, "Tough As Love," introduces her as a true force of nature with a sky’s-the-limit future. The album entered the Living Blues Radio Chart at #1. “Signing with Alligator is a true stamp of approval for any roots music artist,” says Beaver, who has been releasing her own recordings and performing professionally for 15 years, first as a singer and then as a band-leading vocalist and drummer; “It’s like a dream come true.”
