BIO

Lindsey Boullt has devoted his entire career to building excellence and community in the music world.  As artist & performer [Gibson Brands signed artist 2013 | Billboard Magazine Artist 2008-2012] and instructor – Lindsey has taught 1000’s of students of all ages, some of whom have gone on to be accepted to top music schools such as Berklee College of Music in Boston, University of North Texas, Musician’s Institute in Los Angeles, and New York University’s Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music.

Over 25 years ago, Lindsey founded the “Musicians Showcase, a highly respected forum for up-and-coming performers, future-signed bands, and world famous guest artists. From 1998 to current day, tirelessly dedicated to the advancement of the arts in San Francisco, additionally producing artist showcases, underground bauhaus events, music/tech festivals, master artist series, recording projects, kids festivals, bay area global cause performances, and the avant-garde theater ChaoticArtCircus which employed 100 Bay area performers, artisans and vendors. Simultaneously, adhering to a non-stop performance schedule as a working guitarist in the SF/Bay area, Los Angeles and beyond.

Never to study or play music as a child, Lindsey first picked up the guitar at 21 years old, purchasing his first guitar on his 21st birthday 09/25/1980, Austin Tx. Having grown up in a turbulent world with few resources, the goal was to take a few lessons, learn some chords and relax.

Bam!…flash of insight. A vision of what could be inspires a furious work ethic. Propelled by a singular focus, and stark reality, Lindsey receives his music & business degree on scholarship at the University of Texas/Arlington 1984. Dean’s List1st chair Jazz OrchestraTraveling Band. 

 Within one year from purchasing his first guitar, Lindsey began teaching professionally, quickly building to a yearly roster of 40 students/week, while maintaining 2nd day jobs through graduation & beyond. By year three, Lindsey was working professionally in two 3-week-run local theater productions, ‘Man of La Mancha’ & ‘Best Little WHouse in Tx’, two local TV commercials (Dallas Community College), country band contests, Jazz Orchestra state tour and recorded album, Dallas/Deep Ellum Arts festival gigs, and a working jazz fusion band playing Brecker Brothers, Weather Report, & Steps Ahead in area venues. Married, raising a child throughout much of these years branded a sense of urgency into every moment, heightened a focus that rolled on to Los Angeles 1986

In 1987, he graduated with honors from the Musicians Institute/Hollywood, CA at age 27, relocating to New York City the following year, 1988…

Lindsey now lives with his wife in San Francisco. His son, David, is a graduate of UTexas/Austin.
