Raised in the woods of Ohio, Lindsay Latimer grew up in a household well-versed in the performing arts. With her mom an art teacher/freelance oil painter and her dad a past musical theater buff, creativity and ingenuity came freely at home. From elementary school, Lindsay began reciting poems in regional speech meets, being recommended for creative writing classes in school, and starring in her school musical productions. From ages five-fourteen, she attended an assemblage of weekly dance and voice performance classes, with summer enrollments in theater camps at the nationally ranked and internationally acclaimed College-Conservatory of Music at the University of Cincinnati. Throughout her high school years, she continued to sharpen her skills, focusing more specifically on musical theater and voice performance.
She trained privately for seven years with Cincinnati Music Academy's voice instructor, Paul McCready, who helped her land coveted roles in musical productions, such as Peggy Saywer in 42nd Street, Millie in Thoroughly Modern Millie, and Baker's Wife in Into The Woods, two of which she received nominations for 'Best Female Vocalist In A Musical' through Cincinnati Cappies Awards. In 2009, she was awarded 'Best Female Actress In A Musical' for her role in Sondheim's Into The Woods. Her high school summers she filled with multi-week vocal intensives through The Boston Conservatory and DePauw University, songwriting classes through Berklee College of Music, and band tours as the female vocalist for her high school's Electric Jazz Orchestra (EJO). Receiving scholarships from several different conservatories and music programs across the country, she chose to continue her music aspirations in Nashville at Belmont and Lipscomb Universities, studying voice performance by day and chasing a music career by night.
Now nestled in the indie pop/alternative genre, Lindsay tells stories of nostalgia, growing up, and relationships with her buttery vocals and captivating hooks, gracefully skimming the surfaces of pop, electronic, jazz, and rock music, and landing in a fresh brand of her own. Her debut EP in 2015, Grow Wild, was overseen by Grammy award winning engineer Chris Latham (Guy Clark, Brad Paisley) and includes songs self-written or co-written with Ben Shive (Colony House, Ellie Holcomb) and Tommy Kratzert (Ryan Griffin, Celeste Buckingham). In the past year, her original songs, "I Blame You" and "Good as Weeds" have been listed as "Ones To Watch" by NSAI song evaluators. Her sophomore EP, Teenage Lullaby, released in October 2017, under production of Jeremy Lutito.
"There are few people with such a lovely presence as hers… As an import to Nashville from Ohio, she grew up in the beautiful surroundings of her family and living life outside. Her classical training, forced piano lessons, and inspiration from her favorites like Patty Griffin and Joni Mitchell, have made her an incredibly talented, well-rounded musician and songwriter.” -The Maker’s Post
