1/18/2012 - Lindsay McCaul's Debut, If It Leads Me Back, Out This Week
Reunion Records singer/songwriter Lindsay McCaul’s debut label release, If It Leads Me Back, releases today. McCaul, touted by critics as “one to watch” in 2012, is already being compared to noted female vocalists including Francesca Battistelli, Natalie Grant and Nichole Nordeman, while the newcomer continues to garner fans as a guest artist on Casting Crowns’ “Come to the Well” tour.
Produced by Jason Ingram (Tenth Avenue North, Chris Tomlin, Bebo Norman), If It Leads Me Back comprises 11 tracks revealing considerable depth and pathos. McCaul’s keen songwriting paired with her shimmering voice only compels the listener deeper into the album’s overall experience.
Such star quality has impressed critics early on, as NewReleaseTuesday.com gave the album five out of five stars saying, “she [McCaul] gets my nomination as the best new artist and female vocalist I’ve heard in the past year.” CCM Magazine noted “Lindsay McCaul is entering Christian music at a time when the top female vocalists are simply incredible...and yet, this newcomer easily holds her own.” JesusFreakHideout.com agrees, “The current trends for women in music tend toward huge, powerful vocals, but McCaul's soothing, restrained alto matches her down-to-earth musical personality. The result is something friendly to the radio listener, but unique enough to win over this music fan.”
McCaul’s popularity is boosted by her high visibility as a featured opening act on multi-platinum selling, GRAMMY®, AMA and 2010 Dove Award-winning Artist of the Year Casting Crowns’ “Come to the Well” tour. McCaul was initially introduced to audiences last fall as part of the tour’s first run, which included a string of more than 15 sell-out performances, playing before 155,000+ people. Invited back for a 44-date spring leg, McCaul will again join the tour in major markets like Washington D.C., Philadelphia, Oklahoma City, Minneapolis, and
Houston, among others. Visit www.castingcrowns.com for a complete list of tour dates.
