Watch & Listen
From the first note, Lindsey Webster captivates listeners. Her rich, soulful voice enchants a dedicated following who
connect with the raw emotion she shares with them. As a Soul/R&B artist, she combines an admirable natural talent with a genuine, accessible stage presence. Webster considers
herself “very, very lucky” to have grown up in Woodstock, NY.
With a heavy emphasis on arts and music, her grade school had a progressive music program where Lindsey cultivated a deep
love of music by learning the cello. After playing for 10 years, often in first chair, she moved to NYC to attend Fiorello H. LaGuardia School for the Music, Art & Performing Arts. As she grew
musically, she transitioned from strings to voice where she heard her calling and found herself.
In 2009, Lindsey met her partner, Keith Slattery, and started
performing professionally. Together, with a band of world class musicians, they’ve performed over 600 shows in venues
including Bearsville Theater, Levon Helm Studios, Daryl’s House,Helsinki Hudson, The Falcon, The Bitter End, and
Rockwood Music Hall.
The success of her first album and winning “Best Acoustic Song” in the Independent Music Awards caught the eye of Atlanta
Records, whom she signed with to release her second album,
You Change. Appropriately titled, You Change shows a real transition and beautiful growth for Webster as an
artist. While humbled her voice has been compared to R&B
royalty Sade, Mariah Carey, and Anita Baker, Lindsey looks to
bring her distinct style to Soul R&B and continue to make music
that resonates with her fans.

When not collaborating with notable artists, Gerald tours and records with his band, which features some of the top musicians in the country. Gerald’s recordings as a bandleader are: Look Ahead, Signs, Soul Control, Love Letters, On The Fast Track, Velvet, Live at The Jazz Base, Your Move and The Electric Mingus Project.

Gerald is currently curator of the “Unscripted Jazz Series” with special guests such as Kirk Whalum, Raul Midón, Alex Bugnon, Maysa and Gerald Albright. He is in the process of producing two projects, “The Purple House” and songs from his musical ties to Philadelphia. Whether he is performing, recording, collaborating, or teaching, Gerald brings a joyous, polished professionalism to the process of making music.
