At one point or another, we have all felt disillusioned with, or separated from, what has become known as the “American Dream”. In recent years the term seems to have very different meanings depending on who you're talking to. The distance from this idealism, and the search for identity that inevitably comes with it, are some of the themes explored on Butchers Blind's new EP, entitled A Place In America. This latest release marks a significant step forward for the band – the songwriting, the performances, and the recordings have never sounded sharper and more in focus. In 2011, they signed with Paradiddle Records, and released two critically acclaimed LP's – Play For The Films (2011), and Destination Blues (2013). The albums garnered the band glowing reviews and radio airplay around the world. Constant live shows and regional touring have cemented the band's reputation as a solid live act.

In 2010, singer/songwriter Lindsay Ellyn released her first single, “Gone”, kickstarting her career in songwriting. The same year, Lindsay’s original song, “Two Lovers”, won a national contest to be featured in the 2012 film The Right to Love: An American Family—a documentary featuring one gay family’s struggle to raise their two children in the wake of California’s Proposition 8 ruling.
After gigging around New York and garnering a local following, Lindsay began recording her debut project and in August 2012 released the Shores EP independently. Her new EP, Out of Road, was released independently in May 2015. Produced by Dean Miller, the project features famed musicians including Chad Cromwell, Dan Dugmore, Steve Nathan and others. Music aside, Lindsay believes in dedicating much of her life to service. She is supporter of The Doe Fund, a performer with Musicians on Call bringing the healing power of music to hospital patients, and tirelessly supports various animal rescue organizations including Bonaparte’s Retreat and Crossroads Campus. After 12 years in NYC, she now resides in Nashville, Tennessee.
