With more than 250M global career streams, Lindsay Ell has become one of country music's most celebrated female voices. Lauded as “one of the most exciting and talented young artists” (Forbes), Lindsay Ell has two Canadian #1 singles ("Criminal" / "wAnt me back"), a US #1 PLATINUM-status single alongside Brantley Gilbert ("What Happens In A Small Town") and has been celebrated for her incredible work hosting Canada’s Got Talent.
Ell has been nominated for ACM Awards (New Female Vocalist (2019), New Female Vocalist (2020), Music Event of the Year (2020)), CMT Awards (Social Superstar (2015), Collaborative Video of the Year (2019)), CMA Awards (Musical Event of the Year (2019)) JUNO Awards (Country Album of the Year (2021)) and 18 CCMA Awards. Her GOLD single ("wAnt me back") led to the execution of her first Canadian headlining tour and allowed her to share the stage with her childhood idol, Shania Twain, at Canada’s biggest outdoor country festival, Boots & Hearts.
This spring Lindsay will return as host of Citytv’s Canada’s Got Talent and rejoin Shania Twain, performing in numerous US and Canadian markets on the Queen of Me Tour. 2023 will also see Ell continue her philanthropic work through the Make You Movement and release new music.
