Songs from the Sixth Floor by Lindsay Tomasic reveals a vibrant collection of music that is thoughtful, buoyant and eminently authentic -- a joyous commemoration of the inspiration that fills her creative life, and a self-reflective testimony that the expression of an artist is enhanced by a promise of the future.

 

After emerging with her band Trees in the Seventies, Lindsay relocated from Michigan to Los Angeles where she evolved into a record producer, recording engineer and a composer with hundreds of music placements on network and cable television shows. Following stints as a founding member and executive producer with 5 Alarm Music and manager of Firehouse Recording in Pasadena, CA., she subsequently built her own well-equipped Datolite recording studio, originated production music catalogs Frameworks Music and Song Junkies and co-partnered with Ear Parade. She is the creator and executive producer of Storyophonic, the leading music industry podcast. Continuing to perform regularly as a solo artist, she has been featured as a headliner in major SoCal listening venues, and she fronts an intermittent and idiosyncratic band known as The Peculiars.

 

Songs from the Sixth Floor marks Lindsay’s seventh solo release. As the credits affirm, she is at the center of a musical community of colleagues whose contributions to these tracks are generous and loving, adding timbres that ring with validity and resolve. Surrounded by crystalline guitars, a spirited rhythm section and real instruments, Lindsay’s warm and reassuring voice shares these songs of passage and perception from an elevated point of view.

 

A collector of fine guitars, a world traveler, a recording studio owner, and a champion of rescue dogs: Lindsay Tomasic’s life, mirroring her music, is rich with textures and vibrant with possibilities.
