Jersey-based singer-songwriter Lindsay Masterson released her debut EP I'll Admit on May 27, 2022 and is now celebrating a year since its release. The EP takes its name from the vulnerability, honesty, and introspectiveness of the project. The first song warns listeners: "Here's my music / it holds my secrets if you listen close." In the three singles leading up to the EP, Lindsay sings a letter to her younger self in "Hey, Old Friend," apologizes for not loving herself sooner in "Forgive Me," and gets into the struggles of creating music in "No One Told Me."
Lindsay seeks to defy the boundaries of genre in her work. Finding her passion for music through performance, she has traveled the country singing cover songs at venues and festivals. Since then, she has ventured into original music, taking inspiration from artists like Joni Mitchell, Fiona Apple, and Ms. Lauryn Hill.
