    LOTL The Comfort Zone Welcomes Lindsey Webster, debuts new CD " You Change "


    NEW YORK (June 17, 2015) Do you remember that moment when you first heard Anita Baker or Sade; the effortless, sultry, and soaring vocal that captures all of your attention? Lindsey Webster’s delicate and powerful voice takes you to that place - an unabashed nod to the greats and yet 100 percent Lindsey. The Soul Songstress is proud to announce the release of her sophomore album, You Change, via Atlanta Records on July 17. The album is an eloquent collection of work showcasing Webster’s expressive vocals and uncanny talent and the two lead singles “Fool Me Once” and “Open Up” are out now and available to stream HERE. “"You Change” shows the growth we’ve made as artists since our first album; in both our songwriting and who we are as artists. From a delicate song like “Bleed”, a song about utter heartbreak, to an anthem like “I’m Strong”, we explore many facets of our songwriting and are extremely happy with the result”, states Webster. 


    In 2009, Lindsey met her partner, Keith Slattery, and started performing professionally. Together, with a band of world-class musicians, they’ve performed over 600 shows in venues including Bearsville Theater, Levon Helm Studios, Helsinki Hudson, Daryl’s House, The Falcon, The Lambs Club, Rockwood Music Hall, The Red Lion, and Groove. 


    The success of her first album and winning “Best Acoustic Song” in the Independent Music Awards caught the eye of Brian Hurst from UK’s soulandjazz.com. Hurst brought Webster to Atlanta Records, who signed her to release her second album, You Change.
