Last year we stumbled across the music of Nashville’s Lindsay Lou purely on accident, and boy are we glad we did. Her sound isn’t exactly new country but it’s not an antiquated version of the genre either. It’s more like a mixture of all the country music you’ve heard without the flash and less substantial artistry that gets the country tag today. On her new single “Keep On Going,” she proves very quickly that she’s an artist to keep an eye on in the muddied world of country music.
With a more Western swing approach, Lou’s vocals dance above the music like a faithful dance partner. There’s something magical in how she hits a higher register like a songbird in the rain. The happy-go-lucky pacing of the song is upbeat and snappy without being sugary, while a mixture of piano, drums and pedal steel keep the track firmly planted with Southern twang.
“Keep On Going” will be available to stream on all streaming sites and will be available to purchase on all digital platforms May 09. Lindsay Lou is on tour starting May 09 at The High Watt in Nashville, TN until September 26 at Boats and Bluegrass Festival in Winona, MN. A complete listing of her upcoming appearances can be accessed here.
