Lindzy Neilson performing LIVE Sat August 14th 8 PM Lindzy is a country music based

singer/songwriter currently living in Anaconda Montana. Born with a traveling soul in California, her love for music started early listening to her dad play guitar. When she was 12 years old she moved to Montana. Spending most of her time on her grandparents cattle ranch where her love of storytelling grew. Soon her dreams of horses led her to college in Wyoming and later to a horse ranch in Colorado. While in Colorado she joined the US Army. It was during this time when she started songwriting. After her enlistment she found herself back at a horse stable in Colorado and later to south Texas, training Border Patrol horses. When the contract was up she found work at a local live music venue where the passion of live music was built. Few more odd jobs and she was back in Montana. Not long after arriving health issues forced major life changes and music became more of an every day occurrence. Finally learning to play guitar has given her the ability to tell her story in a different light. With a wide range of musical influences from Johnny Cash to Miranda Lambert to CCR and Tracy Chapman just to name a few. Heartbreak songs tend to be her wheel house however her live shows are a mix between 90s hits, country covers and originals
