Alligator Records is proud and excited to introduce Lindsay Beaver, a blues-rocking, soul-singing drummer, songwriter and bandleader. Originally from Halifax, Nova Scotia, and front-person for Toronto’s acclaimed Lindsay Beaver & The 24th Street Wailers, she now resides in Austin, Texas. A uniquely talented musical spitfire, Lindsay is a jazz-trained drummer and a classically-trained vocalist, writing and performing raw R&B, blues and old-school rock ‘n’ roll songs with punk rock fervor. Tough As Love is a refreshing slap across the face of roots music. Tough As Love explodes with Beaver’s volcanic singing, deeply soulful delivery and powerful chops on seven original songs and a handful of vintage roots gems. With a tight-rocking band of Austin aces behind her, Lindsay leads the proceedings with a potent combination of electric urgency and emotional intensity. Guest appearances from Marcia Ball, Dennis Gruenling, Sax Gordon, Laura Chavez and Austin legend Eve Monsees.
