We share a commitment to get out the vote in November and to help empower the people in our fight against white supremacy, fascism and xenophobia.  In sisterhood, we stand together for Black Lives Matter and the struggle for economic and environmental justice with the songs we write.  We look forward to sharing them with you.

“It’s a thrill singing with you” Tom Prasada-Rao

Lindsey Wilson is a singer-songwriter with a flare for nostalgia with her memorable mix of 70's style urban folk rock and conscious lyrics. Throughout her music career, Lindsey Wilson has embraced issues of the heart and mind within her original music. Love songs, protest tunes and lyrics of empowerment have all been a true representation of her style and sensibilities. Her influences stem from a myriad of musically conscious voices that spanned the 60's, 70's and 80's era such as Odetta, Richie Havens, Joni Mitchell, and Joan Armatrading. But, Lindsey's message is truly her own.  www.lindseywilsonmusic.com
