The Project, produced by celebrated GRAMMY-winner Kristian Bush (Sugarland), follows their acclaimed collaboration on Ell’s debut EP Worth The Wait. The album features current single “Waiting On You,” which Rolling Stone Country applauds “is a showcase not only for the Canadian’s gifts as a singer but also as a guitarist.” Watch the official music video HERE.
The Project is the end result of a soul bearing creative process powered by true-to-life songwriting that inspired Ell to “find her artistic voice” (Billboard) and led Sounds Like Nashville to declare, “Lindsay Ell is one of the best, most diverse and talented acts poised to breakthrough the country scene.” From the funky and spirited “Champagne,” to the resilient and superbly relatable “Wildfire” to crowd-favorite “Criminal,” the album is layered with stand-outs.
In tandem with album release, Ell will team up with a media partner on Facebook Live each day throughout street week to stay connected with fans. Stay tuned to Ell’s Twitter, Instagram and Facebook for more information.

ABOUT LINDSAY ELL:
Named one of The Huffington Post’s “Top Country Artists to Watch,” Lindsay Ell is a triple threat: accomplished musician, unique vocalist and songwriter. The young Calgary native learned to play guitar while traveling with her father to country-bluegrass camps as a young girl. Ell honed her craft as a musical stylist and songwriter after being discovered by BTO and The Guess Who’s Randy Bachman (“American Woman” / “Taking Care of Business”) who discovered her at the age of 13. The multi-instrumentalist was soon touring alongside the likes of Luke Bryan, Buddy Guy, The Band Perry and Keith Urban as well as wowing audiences as Carrie Underwood’s guitar player live on the 50th Annual “CMA Awards” and holding her own alongside icon Melissa Etheridge on Skyville Live.
A 2016 CMT Music Award and Canadian Country Music Award nominee, Ell exhilarated audiences from coast-to-coast as part of the 2016 CMT Next Women of Country Tour and is featured on Brad Paisley’s 2017 WEEKEND WARRIOR WORLD TOUR. Ell’s debut album The Project is available now. For more information visit: http://www.LindsayEll.com.
