Hi! I'm Lindy Gray, a songwriter and musician based in Vancouver. I've studied Indian Classical Music, Jazz, and have toured the West coast alongside folk Canadiana band Woodland Telegraph. I'm active in the folk/cabaret music scene and have worked with the Dusty Flowerpot Cabaret, The Vancouver New Music Society, and The Notsent Letters project to name a few. I sing ...play guitar ... and most recently took up the musical saw! Been busy in 2013 writing, recording, and filiming a music video! 'Lindy & the Crow's Nest' (my band) plan to hit the road this Spring on tour with the release of my EP and music video to help with promotion and booking along the way!
ABOUT MY EP
My anticipated 3 song EP ‘Ripe for Revival’ will be released in February 2014 with your help! Engineered by Scott Bell (Sound for Sigur Ros Tour 2013) and featuring some of Vancouver’s top indie artists Jack Garton (Maria in the Shower) and arranger Elliot Vaughan (The End Tree).
"Each of Lindy's songs are complete worlds. This makes them rich vehicles to explore deep themes in an arresting balance of playfulness and darkness.”
ABOUT MY MUSIC VIDEO
With the guidance and imagination of director Shany Diaz, visual artist Annie Chiavaroli and many more dedicated volunteers we bring you a video for my original song 'In Half' inspired by the 1920's silent film era. We've already filmed some key scenes and it's looking awesome so far!

1. The EP:
- Final mix
2. The Music Video:
- Film and lighting equipment

- Costumes, makeup & props
Post-procuction (i.e. editing)

“If you take any activity, any art, any discipline, any skill, take it and push it as far as it will go, push it beyond where it has ever been before, push it to the wildest edge of edges, then you force it into the realm of magic.
It is my goal to inspire and share my music with you!
