As a young girl, she started taking drama, dancing and singing lessons eventually progressing to Speech Level Training in her teenage years from professional tutors in the UK.

The outstanding, hard-working and versatile singer/songwriter/performer & recording artist.
Lyndsay always had an ultimate passion for music and had always been evident from a relatively. At the age of 16 she became involved with carrying her natural presence and self-confident abilities through each of her stage performances. She differs from the other acts in the local music industry by bringing about a certain aura, a professional one which incorporates stamina, excitement, attitude and pure energy.
Her talents had been recognized clearly as she showed keen interest in the subjects of drama, dancing and singing thus taking up lessons before evolving her hobbies into more of a passion, quickly becoming a serious career. In fact, Lyndsay had been taking Speech Level Training for the past couple of years, from a number of professional tutors based in the United Kingdom.
Amongst several competitions and activities of a local nature, her career in general mainly started with the renowned production company Where’s Everybody with which she took courses such as the Starter Pack, Starter Pack Plus and Media Teens to mention a few. Each respective training programme helped her gain experience and confidence then later was offered the position for assisting production during live TV programs which was undoubtedly, yet another positive experience to be considered in her portfolio. However, Lyndsay is still emerging as an individual of many talents and will surely keep on growing successful within the media. In fact, she is currently working on a number of media relative projects, concentrating on learning more about the field before garnering a better grasp on the respective roles.
In the past few years, Lyndsay’s music career has been gradually taking shape managing to show her vocal capabilities through her participation in a variety of local festivals/contestssuch as The Baystreet Star To B Talent Contest, the TV Competition Talent Zone, the Malta Academy of Performing Arts, the Artist Development Showcase, the TV programme L-Isfida, The XFM Virtual Rockstar Competition, the International Malta Hit Song Contest, the TV Reality Show Don't Stop Me Now, The Vodafone Upcoming Artist Competition and Toni Sant’s MMI Listeners’ Picks were she managed to achieve positive results whilst giving her the boost that she thoroughly deserves.
Apart from being an already successful solo artist, Lyndsay had been selected to be a part of Malta’s first girl band known as Vieve back in 2008 in an agreement with Silverscope music and XFM. The experience was a thrilling and exciting one as the artists were hand picked for such an opportunity but only lasted for a year or so when they decided to go their separate ways. Having said that, Lynday had also been chosen as a resident singer on some of the most popular television shows in the past couple of years including Pjazza, Saturday Night, ĦaddGħalik and Sibtek
Whilst grasping such recognition and popularity in the music business, Lyndsay had been invited to perform at a number of local venues, charity events and well-known activities in general such as the Eurovision Song Contest (Supporting Act/Backing Vocalist), the Annual TV Fundraising Marathons, L-Istrina, The Zebbug Rangers Fundraising Festival, The MMA Music Festival, MODIFYIT The Ultimate Car Show, SUPERNOVA Model Competition, The Pledgers Bar (Supporting Act of the UK Duo Cheeky Girls), the opening of the Velvet Underground Bar & Lounge, Maratona bir-Roti, Puttinu Cares, StrinaFest, Oħloq Tbissima, SOHO with the Stars, Bowling with the Stars, The Biggest Santa’s Dress Up, The M. Demajo Annual Christmas Event, the BOV Volleyball Marathon, The Klimanjaro Challenge Buffet Charity Dinner etc.
As the individual takes a look at the top local parties and clubbing events, Lyndsay is surely familiar to this scene as she had performed at several of such events including Why So Serious? at Shadow Lounge, the official opening of TEX MEX Bar & Grill, Sunglasses at Night – Gozo Edition, Tonight in Babylon at Club Miami, BETH! Live at KU Club Gozo hosted by Malta Music Management (Supporting Act), Nadur Carnival, TOBY Live and Special Guests All Night Long, Pierre Cordina’s Birthday Bash and even further nightlife performances to take place.
Lyndsay had been working extensively on her debut album which will merge pop with rock expressing her emotions and feelings through the medium of music as she develops a repertoire of songs from her frequent time in the recording studio including some of her already released tracks which had topped the local charts and covered international airplay such as System Overload, Zip It Up, Going Under, Love Sick, Run Away, Daphne, her duo acoustic project Letter 25 in collaboration with session musician LuLu and her most recent Regent Street (written, produced and directed by jonlukaswoodenman).
Most of the tracks have been successful on the countries’ leading number one hit music station; 89.7 Bay, but they have also gained credibility on other radio stations such as Magic Malta 91.7, the Homegrown Top 10 on XFM/Solid 100.2, the Malta Music Charts Top 20 on Smash Radio 104.6FM and the BMAT PRS Malta Top 20 Airplay Chart.
In May 2010, Lyndsay had been selected to perform abroad on the Italian based TV show Accademia in Pozzallo, an entertainment programme involving young contestants competing and exposing their talents for one noble prize, thus being another positive experience for the young artist.
In the beginning of the year 2011, Lyndsay made it to the final round of the competition Aiming 4 Fame Malta to Midem compilation where her music had been presented in Cannes, France and showcased to major and independent record label executives, Music Television producers and other publishers from the music industry. This was quite a major step for her as an artist as garnering such exposure can aid to cement her career. In fact, this seems to be quite the beginning of an interesting road in which she will try to crack a number of nations’ music scenes.
Apart from this, Lyndsay had also been selected to perform at The Bedford in London, which happens to be one of the most prominent venues in the country. Such an opportunity does not come by often and she used it to perform a live acoustic set promoting her Debut CD Compilation/EP thus far which had been launched earlier in the summer. The show in itself was streamed all over the world helping her reach out to a wider audience whose horizons are broadened by talent.
When it comes to the appreciation of the industry, it seems that Lyndsay has that one covered as well by virtue of being nominated for the Best Solo Artist, two years in a row at the Bay Music Awards in 2010 and 2011 apart from getting a nomination for Best Song of the track Love Sick which spent a number of weeks at number one on 89.7 Bay Radio. Following the same concept, Lyndsay had also impressed the music professionals which vote during the Malta Music Awards in 2011 whilst being nominated for Best Female Artist and then again in 2014 whilst being nominated for Best Solo Artist and Best Song of her number one chart topping single Daphne, being aired on Television Malta (TVM), the leading station in broadcasting.
The most achieving project she has worked on is of course the official Bay Kids Song entitled Reach Out which featured a number of local disc jockeys including J Joy, Dj Toby and Ian Lang and this was a track which also went straight up to number one on the local charts on 89.7 Bay Radio apart from making the chart even on ITunes where it was available following popular demand by the general crowd, whilst creating awareness for a good cause.
In early Summer 2012, Lyndsay formed a newly band to accompany her during live performances as session musicians were they have been undergoing rehearsalsaswell as music projects in the pipeline and have already performed live at various of local events in the last couple of years such as The Farsons Great Beer Festival, The Beland Music Festival, Live Music at Surfside, The B-Day Baystreet Birthday Celebrations, Let It Snow The Plaza Festive Season, The Rookies Charity Music Marathon, The MHSA Acoustic Session, Jamming for Gemgha2Jimma, Girl Power Acoustic Sundays, De Niro’s Bar, Acoustic Sessions at Zion Reggae Bar, FZL Union Group, Acoustic Saturdays at Tex Mex Bar & Grill, Friday Night Live Acoustic Sessions at Café Jubilee, Q Bar Christmas Eve Special, The Acoustic Sessions at Soho Lounge, J&B Live Acoustic Sessions, Ginger Sundays, Bongo Nyah Unplugged Thursdays, Wild Honey Street Sessions, The OMS Staff Party, IL-FESTA f’San Anton, AV Warehouse Acoustic Thursdays, Zejtun Folk Fest, the HSBC Private Staff Party, the Vodafone Malta Marathon and the IUSY World Festivalto mention a few.
Amongst a number of collaborations with a quantity of established artists and musicians, Lyndsay also had the opportunity to team up with Malta-based Russian rapper DimalMultimilliarsovwere together they have released their tune for the summer entitled as Let’s Make It Happen, a collaborative effort that blends Dimal’s rapping skills and Lyndsay’s melodic vocals with pulsating beats fashioned from the same cloth that drapes contemporary dance production all over the place, capturing the spirit of the duo up-tempo track whilst topping the local and international radio charts at fairly high positions including Malta’s Top 10 Charts on 89.7 Bay, followed by an exclusive performance at The Bay Music Awards 2012.
In early December, Lyndsay had also been selected to audition for the next episode of Britain’s Got Talent 2013 in the UK were she had the opportunity to show case her singing potential in front of a professional jury and be recognised by producers on a world wide scale. Such an adventure will hopefully unravel itself into further opportunities and develop even more at a later stage as Lyndsay hopes for international achievements.
Needless to say, the modern day music industry is continuously searching for the complete artist and for this reason Lyndsay had decided to take her career to the next level and participate in ‘The Ultimate Artists Masterclass’ in early September 2013 and August 2014, a training program/workshop in collaboration between Joshua Alamu (SLS vocal coach), Ali Tennant (international number onehit songwriter),Eva Brandt (producer/music examiner)and other music professionals which took place in London aiming to focus on a holistic approach for developing and aspiring artists in understanding vocals, songwriting and production followed by a live showcase at the Water Rats and Westminster University in Harrow Campus. Such an intense seminar has provided a solid platform for Lyndsay to learn, network and develop the musical skills required to progress into music careers, whilst giving out professional guidance, mentoring and opportunities to compete in the music business.
In the time being, Lyndsay’s undergoing musical studies at the Rockschool which is the world wide leading accredited provider of graded exams, diplomas and vocal qualifications being renowed for their practicality, flexibility and creativity whilst facilitating music through summative assesments such as musical theory, vocal anatomy, technique,stage performance etc. Lyndsay has taken this semester in a focused, striving and driven manner as she hopes to develop a more contemporary style of education and manage to obtain a recognised music qualification throughout the syllabus.
With so much to offer, Lyndsay continuously tries her upmost to represent herself in the best possible way with qualities which are summoned through power and courage. There is an ambition, one to contain the excitement and perform in the most suitable standard, bringing out a diverse music taste in the industry. She hopes that in due time, she can set her foot abroad, to reach her dreams of becoming an established artist.
