This week the spotlight shines on Snail Mail. A true gem on the lineup.
The 19-year-old singer whose real name is Lindsey Jordan grew up in the suburbs of Baltimore, began playing guitar by the age of five and listened to a lot of Paramore and Coldplay – later on she discovered indie rock and DIY music. As a kid she was also into hockey.
Once upon a time she played in a Liz Phair cover band with the lovely name Lizard Phair. When Lindsey last year interviewed Liz Phair for Pitchfork she told Liz: “I would have thought of something better if I knew I would have had to say it to your face.”
Her guitar teacher is Mary Timony from legendary indie rock bands Helium and Wild Flag, and currently in Ex Hex.
