When you listen to her songs, you can hear echoes of African Drumming, Classical composition, Latin percussion, choral singing, country music, and folk music.  


Her first Spanish Album, “Dónde Está mi corazón”, was inspired by Afro-Cuban rhythms and a Tufts University tour to Cuba in 2003.  Her song  “Café Con leche” won an award in the Global Rhythm Magazine (now Relix) songwriting competition in December 2006.  Her track “Mama Lele” was nominated for a “Just Plain Folks” Independent Music Award in 2009.


Since 2011, Lindsey has moved into country, folk, Americana fusion. She now directs her family band (Lindsey Schust & the Ragged Mountain Band), and writes songs in a variety of genres and writes instrumental music. Lindsey graduated cum laude from Brandeis with a degree in music and received her Master’s degree in music composition from Tufts University.
