Named one of CMT’s Next Women of Country, Lindsay Ell is a triple threat: accomplished musician, unique vocalist and songwriter. The 26-year-old Calgary native learned to play guitar while traveling with her father to country-bluegrass camps as a young girl. Ell honed her craft as a musical stylist and songwriter after being discovered by BTO and The Guess Who’s Randy Bachman (“American Woman” / “Taking Care of Business”) who discovered her at the age of 13. The multi-instrumentalist was soon opening for the likes of Luke Bryan, Buddy Guy, The Band Perry and Keith Urban. Ell received critical acclaim for her singles “Trippin’ On Us” and “Shut Me Up” including being named one of Rolling Stone’s “10 Artists You Need to Know.”
Ell’s newest single, the spirited and up-tempo “By the Way” is now #1 Most Added spot at U.S. Country Radio this week. The flirty, lemons-to-lemonade break-up tune earned adds in major markets from coast-to-coast in addition to being added to SiriusXM’s “The Highway.” Cleverly referring to ex-flames as “Mr. Cowboy Boots” and “Mr. Baseball Cap” Ell reminds them just how quickly her heart can rebound, even crediting them for helping her meet Mr. Right (i.e. “Mr. Pick-Up Truck”).
“Not every relationship needs to be sad and down in the dumps after it. You learn from it,” Ell told Rolling Stone Country. “You learn what you want and what you don’t want, and you move forward.”
