Lindsay Beaver and Brad Stivers are two of the hottest young singers and musicians coming out of the Austin, Texas music scene – Lindsay known for her intense, fearless vocals and drumming, and Brad for his ferocious guitar playing and signature vocal style. Beaver hails from Halifax, Nova Scotia, and Stivers made his mark in Colorado before they both were drawn to Austin where their exceptional musical chemistry came together.
Brad released his VizzTone debut in 2017 and Lindsay’s Alligator album dropped in 2018. In 2020 Brad released an EP and Lindsay did a single with old friend Jimmie Vaughan. For their self-titled duo debut they went to the Halifax studio of Garrett Mason, one of Canada’s premier blues musicians, along with Joe Murphy and Barry Cooke, plus guest guitarists Kirk Fletcher and Zach Zunis. The twelve powerful tracks, including eleven originals, showcase their musical depth in Blues, Americana, Soul, and hard-driving Texas R&B.
From their forthcoming eponymous album, we present the single “Take It Slow” — an achingly slow blues ballad reminiscent of Etta James. Written by Lindsay Beaver, the track showcases her pitch-perfect delivery and controlled intensity.
