At age three, Lindsay and her family left Philadelphia headed to Nashville. At the time, no one realized what a precipitous move that would turn out to be. “Music City” was just the place young Lindsay needed to be. For it was evident early on, that the precocious toddler was musical. While listening to radio’s Jerry House and the House Foundation on her way to pre-school every day, she quickly became enamored with country music.
It turns out that country wasn’t her only interest. In fact, Lindsay has a passion for all things musical. At age 11 she sang her first part in a theater production of The Magician''s Nephew, which enjoyed an 8 week run at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center.
A few years later, while looking for a new musical adventure, Lindsay discovered a small music school north of town - The Nashville Jazz Workshop. It was there that she fell “head over heels in love” with Jazz! The folks at the NJW encouraged her to audit a phrasing class taught by legendary vocal coach, Ron Browning. Up to that point, Browning had rarely worked with children. After the 15-year old Lindsay’s impromptu rendition of the classic Route 66, in front of his stunned adult class, Browning changed his mind about young students. That chance meeting led to five years of private coaching, which truly brought Lindsay vocally, to where she is today. “Ron made me work hard, and would never let me just … get by,” shared George. “He always pushed me for more.”
While most kids at Brentwood High School were listening to Hip-Hop, Lindsay loaded Johnny Mercer and Tony Bennett on her iPod. “I love Ella Fitzgerald, and Carmen McCrae’s Love is Here to Stay is one of my favorite songs ever,” says George. Gifted academically as well, Lindsay completed high school in three years, and graduated at the top of her class.
Belmont University offered George a full scholarship, and she accepted. Her major: Commercial Music of course. In her sophomore year, she was honored with a very special award. Voted on by the Dean, and all the instructors in the School of Music, the Presser Award, a cash prize of $5,000, was presented to Lindsay, as the most talented and deserving music student.
A family friend who had been following Lindsay’s musical progress, thought it would be appropriate for her to meet Denny Jiosa. The 4-Time Grammy nominated producer and Smooth Jazz guitarist, Jiosa, liked Lindsay from the start. “She’s smart, she’s adorable, she has a great vibe, and she’s a super-talented singer,” he gushed. After a few meetings, Denny agreed to produce a project on her. “I only had one condition,” he said. “I told Lindsay that she would have to c0-write at least one song with me.”
Lindsay accepted the challenge. Living Inside-Out contains five cuts penned by George & Jiosa.
So, from a magical town known mostly for its “guitars, Cadillacs, and hillbilly music,” comes a fresh, new and prodigious, Jazz Pop talent, with an incredible musical future. Keep your eyes and ears wide open for the lovely, the talented, Lindsay George!
Lindsay’s Favorites: Anything pink, chocolate, Gilmore Girls, texting, and dressy dresses.
Lindsay’s Words to Live By: “Find what you love, work hard, and do it the best you can!”
