Lindsay Clark finds balance between traditional folk, English folk, country and her own version of experimental folk that seems to come from within. With influences ranging from the Beach Boys, Elizabeth Cotton, Joni Mitchell, Appalachian folk, her classical upbringing and her father's record collection, she blends many worlds into a uniquely warm sound. She has carved out a unique and vibrant place as an artist with her penchant for poetry, rich harmony and a style of self-taught fingerpicking influenced by Nick Drake, John Fahey, and others.

Originally from the small gold rush town of Nevada City, CA, she now resides in Portland, OR. She has shared the stage with musicians such as Alela Diane, Adam Torres, Nat Baldwin (Dirty Projectors), Ryan Francesconi (Joanna Newsom), Jolie Holland, and Michael Hurley. Her sound has been described as “folk with angelic vocals washing over smooth edges” (1859 Magazine), with her recent album Carpe Noctem called “stunning” by NPR Music. The album features William Tyler, Alela Diane, Sage Fisher (Dolphin Midwives), & Andy Rayborn (Paper Gates) and was engineered, co-produced, co-arranged with Jeremy Harris (Fruit Bats / Hand Habits). She has also recently contributed to Michael Hurley's latest release, Time of the Foxgloves.

“Stunning... if you enjoy the ethereal folk sounds of Joan Shelley, then I am hoping you'll love the album I've had on repeat from Lindsay Clark called Carpe Noctem.” - NPR (2022)

“Clark is an acoustic guitar aficionado, a skilled picker, and possessor of a voice that both quivers and comforts as she sings songs that seem to softly glow.” - Bandcamp (2022)

“A rare exhibition of the weight that minimalism can bear in contemporary, reflective folk music.” - Popmatters (2018)

“the indelible beauty of Clark’s songs is that they don’t often resolve. She reveals small details without unveiling the full picture of her life. And she writes her lyrics with the mind of a poet, often using the natural world as a metaphor to comment on the beauty and danger of life.” - Oregon Arts Watch (2022)
