There aren’t many artists that sing, write their own music and play the drums– all at the same time. However, this is exactly what up-and-coming artist Lindsay Beaver can do. Beaver is currently on tour in support of her most recent Album, “Tough as Love.”

Beaver is a singer-songwriter with a passion for soul and blues music.

“When I first started out, I couldn’t find a singer I liked and I couldn’t find a drummer I liked, so I decided to do both,” she said in a recent press release.

Raised in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Beaver is a jack-of-all-trades when it comes to music. Though she is a classically-trained violinist and a jazz-trained drummer, her sound is full of southern roots and influence. Beaver’s music contains bluesy rumblings, jazzy sounds and rock-and-roll tracks. Beaver, 33, now resides in Austin, Texas, which is where her latest album was recorded.

“Tough as Love” is Beaver’s fifth album. Her first four albums were all recorded with her band, the 24th Street Wailers, but “Tough as Love” will be her first release under her own name. After touring through Canada, Europe and all across America, Beaver is back on the road once more to share her music with her fans.

“Beaver stands behind her kit when singing and reaches down deep to deliver her soulful vocals with swagger and intensity. She has a timeless authenticity that grabs your attention. She cannot be denied,” said Richard Ludmerer of “Making a Scene.”

“I like music with drive and passion,” Beaver said. “I write what I know and I sing what I know. At my shows, I want people to have fun and to be moved. I want everyone to be inspired to dance and I want at least some people to be moved to tears. And I definitely want every person to go home saying, ‘I’m never going to forget this.’”

Ludmerer said that from the first song to the last, “Tough as Love” is rough, raw, fearless and moving.

Beaver’s sound might be recognizable to music fans in Macon; with influences like Little Richard and Amy Winehouse, her style aligns with our southern music town. Her other influences include The Ramones, Billie Holiday and Queens of the Stone Age, among others.

Beaver has won numerous accolades; most recently, she was awarded Canada’s 2018 Maple Blues Award for Drummer of the Year.

Lindsay Beaver will perform at The Creek Stage at The Rookery on 543 Cherry St. in downtown Macon on Saturday, April 13. Tickets are $10 each, and the show starts at 10:30 p.m.
