Serenade To The City on WCLK

Jazz 91.9 WCLK has been playing Lindsey Webster's music as long as she's been putting records out. When she plays in Atlanta she always stops by the station to catch up. The Woodstock, New York native is a singer and lyricist whose style has been compared to Sade, Swing Out Sister's Corinne Drewery and Carole King, among others. Back To Your Heart, her debut record on Shanachie, was funded by close to 200 people  via Kickstarter. Good work, Lindsey. We knew you when.
