Currently performing nationally on superstar and fellow guitar shredder Brad Paisley’s Life Amplified World Tour
The ‘wait’ is almost over as rising star Lindsay Ell revealed today her highly-anticipated debut EP WORTH THE WAIT will be released on Friday, March 24 via Stoney Creek Records.Produced by celebrated GRAMMY-winning musician Kristian Bush (of Sugarland), fans and critics alike are buzzing over the budding star’s debut project.
The six-song compilation is stacked with vulnerability and is deliberate in its sequence, giving listeners a front row seat to a deeply personal narrative. Opening with the flirtatious “Waiting on You,” Ell breezily croons, “I’m a July sky / You’re a bottle rocket / I’m waiting on you…”
“Criminal” then marks a cascading mood shift in an undefined relationship, capturing Ell’s tantalizing vocals over punchy guitar lines. “Space” and “Standing Here” are instantly relatable emotional stand-outs, featuring contributions from heavy-hitting songwriters including Caitlyn Smith and Ryan Hurd, respectively.
The EP’s title track “Worth The Wait” begins to break down walls and sees a relationship come full-circle with its heartfelt lyrics and sweeping melody. Finally, Ell digs into John Mayer’s “Stop This Train,” which not only concludes the project thematically, but also reconfirms the young talent’s capacity for guitar riffs knows no boundaries.
Ell, who PerezHilton.com praised as having “all the makings to be a superstar” and The Calgary Herald lauded as “the complete package” thrives in a lane of her own as the youngest female lead guitar player in the mainstream Country music landscape. The Stoney Creek Records artist is currently performing nationally on superstar and fellow guitar shredder Brad Paisley’s Life Amplified World Tour.

“I’ve been cramming, everything we own into boxes for weeks , and I was just about at my wit’s end. When my job relocated me to Georgia, I accepted it as God’s will….but it didn’t mean I liked it. “As my nine year old son began sorting through his things, I noticed a huge collection of Happy Mel toys in the “throw away pile’. He’d outgrown most of them, but for some reason It just So didn’t feel right to just trash them . So I just put them in a trash bag, and tossed them in the corner to deal with later.”That afternoon, I glanced out the window and saw my new neighbor coming home with a little boy. Suddenly I knew exactly what to do with plastic toys.
“As I grabbed the bag and walked toward their door, it was as if a strong wind had my back . I knocked and when she answered and looked at the garage sack, I felt slightly foolish. “We have a bunch of Happy Meals toys, “I muttered, I thought your boy may like to have them.””Her eyes glistened with tears as she took the bag. “I’m his aunt and just prayed that Jay could have some kind of special memory of his mother who recently passed away,” she uttered . Every Wednesday she took him to McDonald’s. These will mean so much to us both. How can I possibly thank you”
In that moment,
all my frustration about moving lifted from my heart I hugged her and whispered,
not me you need to thank, this was all God!”
