“A rare exhibition of the weight that minimalism can bear in contemporary, reflective folk music.” – PopMatters
“It takes a rare talent to tap into the folk tradition and find something they can claim as their own, but that’s exactly what Lindsay Clark does” – For The Rabbits

Today Lindsay Clark‘s Carpe Noctem is out everywhere via Audiosport Records. The masterful singer-songwriter/folk LP features contributions from notable artists such as William Tyler, Jeremy Harris (Devendra Banhart/Vetiver), Ryan Oxford (Y La Bamba), and Brandon Eggleston (Mountain Goats). In case you’ve missed them, check out all of Lindsay’s previous singles from the LP “Evening Star,” “Roses in the Sky,” and “Better Way.” Lindsay’s release show is tonight in Portland at The Old Church; the evening will feature Michael Hurley and Luke Wyland.
Lindsay Clark finds balance between traditional folk, English folk, country and her own version of experimental folk that seems to come from within. With influences ranging from the Beach Boys, Elizabeth Cotton, Joni Mitchell, Appalachian folk, her classical upbringing, and her father’s record collection, she blends many worlds into a uniquely warm sound. She has carved out a unique and vibrant place as an artist with her penchant for poetry, rich harmony, and a style of self-taught fingerpicking influenced by Nick Drake, John Fahey, and others.
Originally from the small gold rush town of Nevada City, CA, she now resides in Portland, OR. Her sound has been described as “folk with angelic vocals washing over smooth edges” (1859 Magazine). She has shared the stage with musicians such as Alela Diane, Nat Baldwin (Dirty Projectors), Adam Torres, Ryan Francesconi (Joanna Newsom), Laura Gibson, Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith and Michael Hurley. “Crystalline” was released in 2018 via boutique German label Oscarson. Her forthcoming album features William Tyler, Alela Diane, Sage Fisher (Dolphin Midwives), Alexis Mahler (Shook Twins) & Andy Rayborn (Paper Gates) and was engineered, co-produced, co-arranged with Jeremy Harris (Devendra Banhart/Vetiver), with additional engineering by Ryan Oxford (Y La Bamba) and Brandon Eggleston (Mountain Goats), out 6/24/22 with Audiosport Records (NL). She has also recently contributed to vocals on Michael Hurley’s latest release, Time of the Foxgloves (No Quarter Records).
