From local festivals to being part of a girl band (VIEVE), to media related projects (Where’s Everybody?) to prestigious nominations (The Bay Music Awards 2010/2011 & The Malta Music Awards 2011/2014) and hitting the top radio charts, LYNDSAY PACE is no stranger to the music scene and has been described as a ‘producer’s dream’.
The young, hard-working singer / songwriter / performer & recording artist was born on the 12th March 1990 in the Maltese Islands. From a very young age, Lyndsay has always had an incredible passion for music and her natural presence and self-confident abilities can be seen in each of her stage performances. She differs from other acts in the local music industry by instilling a certain professional aura, which incorporates stamina, excitement, attitude and pure energy.
Over the past few years, Lyndsay’s music career has been gradually taking shape. She has managed to exhibit her vocal capabilities through her participation in a variety of local events (such as winning the overall prize of The Star To B Talent Contest in 2006) and through collaborations with a variety of well-known artists. This has all led to recognition and popularity in the music business.
Lyndsay has also been working extensively on her debut album which will merge pop with rock and which expresses her emotions and feelings through the medium of music. In summer 2011, she managed to develop a repertoire of singles and launched an EP compilation primarily from her frequent time in the recording studios.
In this album, Lyndsay has also included some of her already released tracks. These tracks were well received and topped local charts (including Malta’s Top 10 Charts on 89.7 Bay) and also covered international airplay. You will find such tracks as System Overload, Zip It Up, Going Under, Love Sick, Reach Out (The Official Bay Kids Song 2011) Run Away, Daphne (which hit the number 1 spot at the BMAT PRS Malta Top 20 Airplay Chart), Letter 25 (an acoustic duo collaboration with session musician LuLu) and her latest Regent Street (written, produced and directed by Jon Lukas Woodenman).
During the summer months of both 2013 and 2014, Lyndsay participated in a variety of music training workshops / programmes, mainly the ‘Ultimate Artists Masterclass.’ She also performed in a number of gigs overseas and mostly in London, such as at The Bedford, The Water Rats and Westminster University in Harrow Campus to mention a few. These gigs offered her the opportunity to expose her music to major and independent record label executives, worldwide producers and other publishers from the music industry. This was quite a major step for her as an artist and garnering such exposure helped her take her career to the next level.
Furthermore, Lyndsay was also selected to audition for the next episode of Britain’s Got Talent 2013 in the UK, where she showcased her singing potential in front of a professional jury and was given the opportunity to be recognised by international producers.
Lyndsay is currently undergoing musical studies at the Rockschool which is an internationally recognised and accredited provider of graded exams, diplomas and vocal qualifications.
Lyndsay hopes that in due time, she can set her sights on working abroad so as to reach her dreams of becoming an established artist.
How did you first discover you had a talent for singing?
My talents were recognised early as I have always shown a keen interest in the subjects of drama, dancing and singing. I took lessons and then did all I could to evolve my hobbies into more of a passion and it quickly became a serious career. In fact, for the past couple of years, I have been taking Speech Level Training from a number of professional tutors based in the United Kingdom.
Besides various local festivals and activities, my career mainly started with the renowned production company, Where’s Everybody where I attended media and music related courses then assisting in production during live TV programmes and being a resident singer on most of the popular local shows including ‘Pjazza’, ‘Saturday Night’, ‘Ħadd Għalik’ and ‘Sibtek.’ This was undoubtedly yet another positive experience and another positive step in my career, during which time I gained more exposure on the way.
Eventually, one opportunity led to another and I found myself developing my musical skills and growing artistically whilst writing original material in the recording studio. I also participated in a number of live concerts, acoustic sessions, music marathons and private functions with the band, such as The Farsons Beer Festival, The Beland Music Festival, The Vodafone Malta Marathon, The IUSY World Festival, L-Istrina, Zejtun Folk Fest, Il-Festa f’San Anton etc.
Speaking from a personal perspective, I believe that it’s all about delivering the right package, combined with a mixture of attitude, wild style and diversity all at one go. Thus, I continuously try my utmost to represent myself in the best possible way with qualities which are summoned through determination, power, personal influences and inspirations from around the world.
What would you never, ever buy – and why not?
Well, I would never ever buy a packet of cigarettes that’s for sure, ha ha! It’s a no-no for me – I can’t stand the smell and I wish I could just ban them forever!
How would you describe your relationship with money?
I think that people consider money as a big deal in today’s world, but I personally believe that it can’t buy happiness, health or love. The problem is that money has become such a priority in life so people tend to forget about the true values or beliefs and instead focus on the materialistic side of things. Okay true, I wouldn’t neglect living the lifestyle of the rich and famous (I mean seriously – who would?!) but there are so many other important factors that we should care about and be thankful for which we eventually learn to appreciate in time. Think about it.
Were you ever bullied as a kid?
I don’t usually like to discuss these things in public, but I have to admit that back at school as a timid and shy kid, I was always the odd one out. I used to miss out on so many opportunities and I was not the most sociable person around.
Today, however, the music world has taught me to become a much more confident, outgoing and strong person, both on a personal level as well as being an artist, whilst always being in the spotlight and having to accept all types of criticism and different opinions. I have learnt that the most important thing is to always believe in yourself and never let anyone break you down in order to achieve what you want in life because at the end of the day, I think that every individual is special in their own unique way.
Do you collect anything?
No… I have better things to do I guess :)
