Lindsay Foote has made a career of crafting sincere music built around honest lyricism and vibrant arrangements steeped in folk traditions. The songwriter’s path has been an unconventional one. Though Massachusetts-born, she spent the formative years of her twenties in Toronto, entrenching herself in the diverse music scene. During those years, she released two EPs, became a two-time finalist in the Canadian Songwriting Competition, and completed significant tours through the US and Canada.
She returned to her hometown of Boston in 2019, and has since been making a name for herself in the vibrant folk scene. In January 2020, Foote released her latest EP, Rollercoaster, with a sold out show at Club Passim. On this EP, Foote collaborated with Toronto’s multi-instrumentalist and producer Joel Schwartz. After receiving significant attention on the folk circuit, they decided to work together on her upcoming single “Guarded Heart.” “Guarded Heart” finds her delving deeper into an americana sound, combining traditional folk elements with her signature hook-friendly, songwriting.
