    Wonderful acoustic musician for any wedding or event!

    From start to finish Lindsay was incredibly professional, kind, flexible and helpful! She even helped give me recommendations for another friend who was looking for musical services for an unrelated event. When the day of the wedding came, she truly helped make the whole day go beautifully and smoothly. Her singing and guitar playing is outstanding and she is very friendly and professional! She was a pleasure to work with and so talented! I will recommend her time and time again!

    Beautiful music!

    We saw Lindsay perform at another friends wedding years ago and I knew immediately I wanted her at mine. Her voice is beautiful and her song choices are varied yet cohesive, there is something for everyone! We received so many compliments about her singing, she adds a unique and personalized touch to every wedding she performs at. She is incredibly easy to work with, I highly recommend her to all!
