Stay With Me “Everything is energy,” exclaims the stunning, charismatic Billboard #1 singer/songwriter Lindsey Webster. The amiable and earthy singer, has managed to shake up the cliquish male and instrumental dominated – Contemporary Jazz scene, forging a path that is uniquely her own. Amazingly in 2016, Webster became the first vocalist to hit #1 on Billboard’s Contemporary Jazz charts since Sade. “For the first time, I think I made an album for myself... This album speaks to what I want and in return I think that it will connect with my audience in a deeper way.” Reasons features several major special guest collaborators including bassist Nathan East, trumpeters Nicholas Payton and Randy Brecker, pianist Brian Culbertson (who plays trumpet and trombone on the album), Kev Choice and drummer Lil John Roberts, among others. At the heart of Lindsey’s collaborations is her long-time musical partner, pianist Keith Slattery; the winning combination of Webster and Slattery has resulted in two Billboard #1’s and eight Top 10’s on the Billboard charts. The highly anticipated Reasons is an intimate and introspective portrait of Lindsey Webster’s epiphany about herself and her relationships. It has all the makings of a career-defining album as she steps forward as one of the best singers of her generation, a promising songwriter and rarity in the world of Contemporary Jazz. At times her voice calls to mind such iconic singers as Mariah Carey, Anita Baker and Roberta Flack. Reasons was recorded during three different sessions, starting August 2021, with a second session at the end of January 2022 with the final session wrapping in May 2022. “I think that the pandemic really forced me to look inward, giving me deeper insights into who I am, which made it easier for me to say what I was feeling in these songs,” shares Lindsey, who was first cellist in high school and continues to play to this day. “I reached a new level of not caring if what I said might offend someone.” Webster made history in 2016 with her original, “Fool Me Once,” which was the first vocal-driven #1 song to top the Billboard Contemporary Jazz chart since Sade’s “Soldier of Love” in 2010. She beat Sade’s three-week run at #1 with a four-week stay at the top of the charts. November 2016, Webster made her Shanachie debut with Back To Your Heart, which spawned three songs that reached Top 3 on the Billboard Contemporary Jazz Charts: “Back To Your Heart,” “Next To Me” and “Where Do You Want To Go,” which hit #1. 2018 saw the release of Love Inside, which featured the Top 5 hit “Love Inside” and “the Top ten single “It’s Not You, It’s Me” featuring Rick Braun. A Woman Like Me followed in 2020 featuring the standout title track, the lush ballad “A Love Like Me” and the catchy “One Step Forward.” Webster who counts Steve Wonder, Anthony Hamilton and Chris Botti at the top of her wish list of collaborators, concludes, “I feel that the highlight of my career is still an unfolding journey. There is excitement around every corner of my life and work!” *VIDEO: Lindsey Webster - Stay With Me > *SOURCE: The Urban Music Scene > * RehaB101 Original New School Webcast > #RehaB101ONSW newsfeed. * Blaze 1 Radio Blog new indie dance hip hop gospel jazz pop rap reggae rnb urban blogs internet live music stream dj mixshows podcasts world wide web national international Next2Blaze 24/7
