Lauded as “one of the most exciting and talented young artists in country music” (Forbes), Lindsay Ell is a triple threat: accomplished musician, unique vocalist and awe-inspiring songwriter. The Calgary native learned o 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 touring alongside the likes of Luke Bryan, Buddy Guy and Keith Urban.
Ell is a 2-time CCMA Awards winner (Interactive Artist or Group of the Year) who has recently stepped onto the stage as part of Keith Urban’s Graffiti U World Tour, Brantley Gilbert’s Not Like Us Tour, Brad Paisley’s Weekend Warrior World Tour and most recently Blake Shelton’s Friends & Heroes Tour and Dierks Bentley’s Beer’s On Me Tour.
Ell’s first full-length album The Project debuted at No. 1 on the Country Album Sales Chart and was named Billboard’s “Best Country Album of 2017.” She was recently announced as the host for Canada’s Got Talent which will air in 2022.
