Patience is a virtue, and Lindsay Ell’s patience has finally paid off. She says her debut EP on Stoney Creek Records feels like it was years in the making, but after hitting her stride as an artist – and a woman – the end result was Worth the Wait.
Comprised of six heart-on-her-sleeve tracks and produced by Sugarland co-founder Kristian Bush, Ell’s Worth the Wait EP is the modern-country calling card she’s been working toward her whole life – from her childhood in Calgary, Alberta; through her time opening shows for blues legend Buddy Guy; and even with attention-grabbing singles “Trippin’ On Us” and “By the Way.”
“I’m so proud of it,” Ell beams about the project. “I’ve really found my sound, and I’ve never felt about music the way I do now.”
Tastefully bluesy, emotionally charged and full of empowering themes, part of the reason Ell’s new music feels so special is the growing up she’s done in the past few years.
