Lindsay Fuller: A Raw, Powerful New Voice

Looking at Lindsay Fuller, you'd never guess that the mild-mannered singer-songwriter can harness harrowing depths and howling pain. But when Fuller opens her mouth to sing, every head in the room turns in her direction. Championed by the likes of Amy Ray and Dave Matthews, Fuller quickly established herself as one of Seattle's most exciting new singers on the strength of a raw, powerful voice and her Southern Gothic-influenced storytelling. In "Libby," Fuller casts a dark eye toward love gone wrong. When she moans, "Libby, you take my breath away," the words transcend mere desire or passion. Instead, the song takes a brooding and beautiful look into a world of obsession, betrayal and regret tinged with rage.
