Canadian born country singer Lindsay Ell has recently released her new single “By The Way”. Signed to Stoney Creek Records, Ell tends to incorporate elements of rock, blues and pop within the country genre. Ell was discovered when she was only 15 years old, and quickly made a name for herself in the music industry with Rolling Stone, Billboard and Guitar World having all praised Ell’s big potential proclaiming her as one of the top new artists to watch in 2014.

Dear Country Radio: Is Lettuce Really The Best Part Of A Salad Anyway?

I read an article in Country Aircheck last night, where prominent radio consultant Keith Hill advises his clients (aka radio stations) not only to not play female artists back-to-back, but to even further lower the amount they play female artists at all. For those of you who don’t listen to country radio or pay attention to the charts, let me tell you the amount they play female artists is already criminally low.

It’s amazing how time flies. Just over a year ago I wrote my first post for this site, it was my review of The Band Perry who were supported by Lindsay Ell, then a relatively unknown Canadian, at least on these shores. In her short set whilst supporting TBP she certainly made an impression on the crowd. Despite her having not as yet released a full album, she’s clearly built up a small but loyal following in the UK, enough to warrant embarking on her first UK headline tour.

After what seemed like an eternity waiting for this concert, I got the feeling I was in for a treat. Here’s what happened.
