Like all true first loves, rock music has long held Lindsay Murray in its grip. For Lindsay it was the melodic, hook-filled power pop sounds of Matthew Sweet that provided her a formal entrance into the music world. At the age of fourteen, she discovered Sweet’s 1995 album 100% Fun and was immediately compelled to pick up a guitar for the first time—before she even finished listening to the album all the way through.
Through the years, these multifaceted musical loves have influenced Lindsay’s approach as an artist, allowing her a broad reach as both a guitarist and vocalist. With her sultry, smokin’ cool recordings, backed up by a healthy appreciation for music history, she delivers a passionate, eclectic sound that defies genre.
Under her musical moniker, Gretchen’s Wheel — a reference to a beautiful and timeless musical composition by Schubert — Lindsay’s debut promises to be a glossy and fully digitalized realization of the analogue traditions of the past, compact with emotionally affecting songs loaded with her unique and idiosyncratic approach to songwriting. This is pristine, slicked-back music of the singer-songwriter tradition which in turn boasts a hard rock edge.
