Singer-songwriter Jenn Lindsay

Financed completely by her fans, Jenn Lindsay's sixth studio album, Uphill Both Ways, was completely recorded in a Manhattan apartment. Lindsay calls this album "a pageant of change, growing up, grief, and the little things that get us out of bed in the morning." In Uphill, Lindsay plays the guitar, piano, banjo, baritone ukulele, mandolin, drums, keyboard, xylophone, harmonica, and tambourine. For "Belong Alone," Lindsay sings of getting through a breakup by being alone.

Lindsay lives in New York City, and is part of what she calls "a hub of musicians based in the East Village's Sidewalk Cafe." Her music has been featured on MTV and on numerous nationally-released compilation albums. During her travles, Lindsay says she's "played her songs in exchange for free catfish in Alabama; sang to a room full of friendly cowgirls in Amarillo, Texas; entertained in Vegas; and played encores to Ladyfest attendees in Memphis, Brooklyn, and Ottawa."

Along with Uphill, Lindsay recently released her seventh studio album, Perfect Handfull. Lindsay's song "White Room" is set to be included on the 10th SBS Indie Music Sampler.
