This song is so simple… Just an acoustic guitar and vocals, sometimes that’s all you need. Lindsey’s voice just sits comfortably over this and it may sound a little cheesy but this is the kind of song I could just imagine someone sitting in a coffee shop and performing. You can have your stadium fillers a la Taylor Swift but you can have those songs where that simplicity can make the whole audience just shut up and listen.
This was it for me, and one of the reasons why I chose this one to review.
This song is about a crush that Lindsey had on a co worker, and how she felt that this person was out of her league, and just like a good fairytale ending the feeling was reciprocated. You don’t always get that in songs, but in this case it happened and it makes my heart feel warm.
Lindsey Hinkle is a self-taught musician armed with resonating lyrics that are filled with insight into the human condition, as well as haunting and penetrating vocals that seem to echo mercilessly inside your head. She has been writing and performing original material since age 13, and has opened for artists such as Keith Urban, Lady A, Sugarland, Little Big Town, Thompson Square, Drake White, Shawn Mullins, Marc Broussard, Jennifer Nettles, Sugarland, Darius Rucker, Indigo Girls, Kristy Lee and Michelle Malone.
Lindsey cites Beth Hart, Patty Griffin, Sheryl Crow, John Mayer, Indigo Girls and James Taylor as her primary musical influences. Lindsey’s style of both music and lyrics have often been compared to the stylings of John Mayer by industry critics and professionals.
At age 17, Lindsey won the Eddie’s Attic Open Mic Shoot Out in Atlanta, besting singer/songwriters with more than double her years’ worth of experience.
In 2019, Lindsey moved to Nashville, TN with a big purpose – to get sober. While living in a halfway house, she began writing music as a way to cope with the struggles she had experienced. Now, with almost 5 years of sobriety under her belt, Lindsey uses her music to spread joy to others. “I believe my purpose is to create music with the intent of joy and/or emotional awareness. This helps me heal and allows me to forgive like those who have forgiven me.”
