Lindsay Ell has signed a worldwide publishing agreement with Concord Music Publishing.
Born in Calgary and influenced by the blues and her love of playing the guitar, Ell started writing songs at age 10. She met guitarist Randy Bachman at age 13, who quickly became her mentor and produced her first album, Consider This, which was released in 2006 when Ell was just 17.
During the next decade, Ell released numerous Top 20 country singles as well as the EP Worth the Wait and the albums Alone (2009) and The Project (2017), which reached No. 4 on Billboard’s country charts. She has a Platinum No. 1 single “What Happens In A Small Town” featuring Brantley Gilbert, as well as two Canadian No. 1s under her belt, “Criminal” and “Want Me Back.” In August 2020, Ell released her solo album Heart Theory, a concept LP about the seven stages of grief, which reached No. 5 in Canada.
Ell has 18 CCMA Awards, and in 2022, stepped into the role of host of Canada’s Got Talent, where she’s recently been nominated for a 2023 Canadian Screen Award for Best Host or Presenter. Ell is currently touring in select U.S. and Canadian markets with Shania Twain on the “Queen of Me” tour, running through June. She returns as host later this year for season two of Canada’s Got Talent, and will also release new music.
“Lindsay is a dream partner for us at Concord!” says Brad Kennard, SVP A&R at Concord Music Publishing in Nashville. “She has the obvious superstar voice, but also world-class songwriting, musicianship, and production skills! We simply can’t wait to work with her across various creative outlets within Concord.”
“It feels amazing to be part of a team that is so engaged in creating a nurturing environment for all their writers,” shares Ell. “Concord is so team-focused and from the moment I walked into that building, I felt like everyone had my back. I’m truly so excited to start this new chapter with this team!”
