Lindsey Yung is in a class all her own. A truly remarkable singer/songwriter, she has a voice that will stop you in your tracks and lyrics that have a way of resonating with the very core of her listeners. She has been involved with music since childhood when she began vocal lessons at the ripe age of 4. She began writing music around the age of 12 and has since added piano, ukulele, and guitar to her list of instruments she plays, while stunning audiences with the power of her voice.
With 2 critically acclaimed self-produced original albums and a full-length Christmas album made with her group The Winters, Lindsey has established her lasting presence as her popularity continues to gain momentum and the respect it deserves. The last few years have yielded many recognitions and accomplishments for Lindsey.

She has shared the stage with/opened for Jon Foreman, Tyrone Wells, Shawn Colvin and Clara C. Lindsey was also recently invited to perform and compete in the well-known movement, Kollaboration, an honor she received after being selected out of many who auditioned for the chance to be involved.
