LeeLindsey's Profile

About me:Like the flower that she has chosen to use in her branding, Lee Lindsey is a tall poppy. Her resiliency in life, business and pursuing her dreams, has made Lindsey stand out in this garden we call life.

Lindsey was born in Canada, but knew from an early age she couldn't plant her roots anywhere. At age 15, with just a guitar and portfolio, she set out to make it on her own. The aspiring model and musician became a globetrotter.
Eventually Lindsey married and settled down in London, England. She was blessed with two children, and they became her focus for quite some time. Lindsey realized that her dreams needed to be fulfilled, if she were to be her true self and an inspiration to her children. She used her business skills, and gift for networking and design for work and her passion for music was satisfied through hosting musical showcase nights she called Tall Poppy Presents. Artists sought out Lee's events, and audiences grew to love the warm atmosphere. Lee and her children often played, and their guests felt like an extension of their family.
In 2000, Lee and her children returned to Canada to be with her dying mother. The visit resonated with her, and 4 years later, she packed up her children and dog, hopped across the pond, and replanted in Vancouver. Arriving there was bittersweet; the Lindsey’s were starting anew, but making connections was difficult for the family. Still, she had a driving spirit and two children whom looked to her as a role model- she pushed forward and kept pursuing her aspirations. She performed live, recorded, built a recording studio, and began hosting Tall Poppy in Vancouver.

Things seemed to be going according to plan, until tragedy struck. In 2007, an electrical fire burned the family home to the ground- Although the family escaped with their lives, they were left homeless, without any material possessions, and without much hope. Lindsey's recording studio and music catalogue was also lost, devastating her business. And in the wake of the tragedy, their dog Troy passed away from the stress. Singing, touring, and hosting, stopped as Lindsey focussed all her energy on rebuilding (literally) everything.
Though it took several years, Lindsey came out stronger and more driven than ever. Rising like a phoenix from the ashes, when most would have given up, is what defined Lindsey. Her two children, inspired by mother would eventually begin to emulate her as they rebuilt their lives. Both her son Sam (Bradley) and daughter Grace Lindsey are musicians and are growing in popularity quite rapidly. As her children grew up, Lindsey (ever the renaissance woman) designed and helped construct their second Canadian home/Bed and Breakfast. It included a second recording studio, which drew in musicians and inspired musical genius.
Lately, Lindsey has been busy writing and recording in her newest "Poppy Cottage”. Her highly anticipated third album, Flowers, will be released in March 2013, and she will soon unveil a video for her song Warrior. She's also performing at the Festival of Lights this year in Dundarave and even has a tour slated for spring/summer 2013.

Music means to me:If I were to put myself in a Movie Role it would be a toss-up between Boadicea, the Warrior Queen and Neytiri in Avatar – I am inspired to protect and create.
