Lindsey Yung is in a class all her own. A truly remarkable singer/songwriter, she has a voice that will stop you in your tracks and lyrics that have a way of resonating with the very core of her listeners. Her latest album, “Opal Essence” showcases her uncanny ability to write songs that are infectious, moving and unique. She wrote all 10 songs on the album independently, plays both piano and ukulele, and has a voice that has been called “a beautifully refined and powerful instrument” (San Diego Troubadour).
Lindsey was born, raised and is currently residing in San Diego, CA, although you’ll often find her over in Maui where the source of inspiration for her latest album originated. She has been singing since she was a child, making her professional debut at age 5 in the musical “South Pacific.” Since then she has been performing nonstop and has shared the stage with/opened for arists like Jon Foreman, Erin McCarley, Tristan Prettyman, and Tyrone Wells.
Lindsey’s music has received recognition on many levels. She won the 2006 Los Angeles Music Award for the category: Female Singer/Songwriter of the Year and was nominated by popular vote for a 2007 San Diego H.A.T. award (Honoring Acoustic Talent Award) in the category of "best vocalist.” She received a 2008 “honor award” for her song “With Every Breath” from the 9th annual Great American Song Contest and was nominated for a 2008 and 2009 Asian Heritage Award in the category of “performing arts.” "Opal Essence" was included on the coveted list of "Best Albums of 2008" put out by KGRL fm and Lindsey’s song “It Doesn’t Get Better Than This” made it to the finals of the Kauai Music Festival Songwriting Competition in 2009. Recently, Lindsey's song "With Every Breath" was hand-picked to be on the "Songs For Haiti" compilation where she is featured alongside artists like Kate Earl (Universal Republic) and Leigh Nash if Sixpence None the Richer.
Lindsey recently released a full-length Christmas album with multi-instrumentalist Blake Darling in November 2010. She and Blake, otherwise known as "The Winters" spent all of 2010 on a 14-track Christmas album. The CD was wildly successful and they completely sold out of all the CDs they had printed before Christmas 2010! Lindsey also recently released an album with her side project/band "Lavella" earlier in 2010, which is available for free download under "music." Currently, she's hard at work on an EP of songs she's written over the past 2 years. The EP is planned to be released early 2011 and a music video will soon be released for her song "Hold."
