Show #016: Tish Lyndsey

This week features the long-promised interview with Tish Lyndsey, an exciting performer in the local scene who blends pop, soul, and jazz with an angelic voice and a stage presence that can only be described as electrifying. Tish gives us four great tracks that show off her dynamic range as a singer/songwriter, along with a fantastic interview where she discusses her history, her family, her loves, and her drives. All of this is neatly packaged with her personable charm, humor, and uncanny ability -- as the photo above indicates -- to maintain her glamour, even when donning a space-cadet headset and "playing geek" with me for forty-five minutes.

Both on-stage and off, Tish is a tireless worker for human rights, both at home and abroad, working for various charities and causes, including my own band's very successful benefit for our friend Tammy Dial -- a woman whom, at the time, Tish had only known for a few minutes before graciously volunteering her time, talents, and loyal fan base to our cause. In all, she is a superlative woman and humanitarian that I am proud to call my friend.

Side note: It is my practice as of late to dub the guest artist's music underneath the interview to cover up edits, line noise, and other undesirable audio elements inherent with location recording. In the case of this week's show -- recorded live in a very crowded Jazz Kitchen -- I discovered that the band playing in the next room during the recording was clearly audible and prominent enough that it couldn't be EQed or filtered out of the mix without distraction. Therefore it is important to note that the "bed music" you hear during the interview is not Tish Lyndsey's, but is actually the normal ambience of the venue and, to the best of my knoweldge, should be credited to Rob Dixon's group, Triology. If I am mistaken in my identification/recollection, please correct me and I will give proper attribution.

Links referenced in the show:

  • Tish Lyndsey can be found here: Website / Myspace
  • For more information about relief efforts in Darfur, check out The International Rescue Committee's web site.
  • To read more about efforts to aid the children of Uganda, visit ChildSoldiers.net.
  • Tish recently put on the benefit she mentioned for Women for Women, surpassing her own goals, and raising over $1500 for the organization, which supports women in war-torn regions with financial and emotional aid, job-skills training, rights education and small business assistance so they can rebuild their lives.
  • Tish is also affiliated with Old Soul Edutainment, a great promotional group that showcases little-known local artists.
  • To continue with the activist theme of this episode, we also feature a promo for Indirect Democracy, which provides a somewhat different, often irreverent look at the news. Definitely worth checking out.
  • And finally, once again we put the call out for supporters of Internet-based radio stations to visit savenetradio.org and ask their congressmen to support bill HR2060, which will set more-reasonable licensing fees and allow them to continue supporting artists by bringing us great music that is ignored by most terrestrial radio stations.

Solicitations and Submissions

Solicitations for blog posts can be made by sending and email to "blog -at- indyintune -dot- com" and should follow these guidelines:

  • Local (Indianapolis-based) acts always have priority.
  • Visisting acts playing a bill with one or more local acts are also considered.
  • We generally don't like to repeat content found on other sites. If your request already has a lot of coverage on other sites, it will be considered low-priority unless you can give us an exclusive angle.
  • For obvious reasons, we don't do solicited album reviews, though we do appreciate you letting us know when you have a new release. Consider coming in and talking about the album yourself live on the air or a podcast.
  • All of our staff writers are unpaid enthusiasts. All requests for blog posts are entirely at their descretion.
  • As such, they generally need a lot of lead-time to put something out -- we're talking weeks of lead time, not hours.
  • That said, individual authors have full authority to ignore the following guidelines and write whatever they want ... if you can convince them to.
  • In addition, feel free to write your own post and submit it for posting as a "guest blogger." Those almost always get accepted.
  • Finally, regional or national acts submitting without meeting the above guidelines are generally ignored. We're not trying to be dicks, but if you send us a generic form-letter with your press release, and it doesn't even remotely concern a local artist or event, then you're not part of our core focus.
