Lindsay Arnold

Music

Lindsay is a singer/songwriter with the Saskatchewan folk trio, Hook & Nail.

She writes and performs with her bandmates Jeff D. Michel and Mike Davis. Their debut album, Ghosts of Taylorton, was released on physical media and to all digital/streaming services on September 28th, 2018.  Their first single from the album, Adeline, was selected for CBC Radio One afternoon programming across Canada and added to the Canadian Singer-Songwriter channel on the streaming CBC Music App.  Their second single, Two Tons,  has been added to over two dozen community and campus radio markets from Nova Scotia to Yellowknife.  Ghosts of Taylorton was ranked #4 on SaskMusic’s Best Saskatchewan Albums of 2018 Top Ten List.

They use rich vocal harmony to tell the stories of the prairies, past and present.  Their live performances combine the mandolin, acoustic and electric guitar to give their music the honesty of folk-music, the twang of country and the drive of pop/rock music.    Deriving inspiration from the oil-rich, coal mining area near Estevan, Hook & Nail’s songs delve into the personal accounts of historical events that have shaped life on the prairies today.   The stories within the music are similar to those you might hear around the kitchen table after a meal shared with friends and family: a blend of confessions, childhood memories, local history and rural legends.
