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, she has crafted a timeless sound and personal style that simply cannot be denied. On her Alligator Records debut, Tough As Love, and on stage, Beaver is a true powerhouse. Tough As Love is rough and raw, fearless and moving. It introduces Lindsay Beaver as a true force of nature with a sky’s-the-limit future. “I like music with drive and passion,” Lindsay says. “I write what I know and I sing what I know. At my shows, I want people to have fun and to be moved. I want everyone to be inspired to dance and I want at least some people to be moved to tears. And I definitely want every person to go home saying, ‘I’m never going to forget this.’”
