Canadian singer-songwriter Lindsay Kay creates music that is “ethereal, melancholy, and dabbles in unreality while keeping gracefully attached to this world,” says New Sick Music.
Her music can be described as quiet, melancholy singer-songwriter with a jazz influence, and she is frequently compared to artists like Joni Mitchell, Laura Marling, and Feist. In 2018, she released her debut, full-length album For the Feminine, by the Feminine - an 8 song meditation on themes of femininity and womanhood, written and produced by Kay herself. The album was made from top to bottom by an entirely female and femme team - something Kay felt was absolutely essential for the songs to be performed and realized authentically and vulnerably. Every role, from studio musicians to engineers to album artwork design to mastering to PR, was filled by a woman, and uplifting and women within the arts and music industry is something Kay is extremely passionate about. The award-winning and critically acclaimed album explores seeking faith, the ways in which women make themselves small to make space for their male counterparts, toxic masculinity, the reclaiming of power in femininity, consent, and more.
