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.

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 avant-garde theater including the ChaoticArtCircus  which employed 100 Bay area performers, artisans and vendors.

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. Having grown up in a very turbulent world with few resources, the goal was to learn some chords and relax…

Bam!…concepts click…music theory clicks…sight-reading clicks…progress advances at a freakish pace.

Lindsey received his music & theater management degree on scholarship at the University of Texas in Arlington 1984. Dean’s List • 1st chair guitar Jazz Orchestra • Traveling Band. 

Just after a year from purchasing his first acoustic guitar, Lindsey began teaching professionally, 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 2-week-run local theater productions, two local TV commercials, country band contests, Jazz Orchestra festival tour and record, Deep Ellum arts festival, and a working jazz fusion band playing Brecker Brothers, RTF, Earl Klugh 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 NYC the following year, 1988…The mantra – “if you’re going to call yourself an artist, then you must only make your living in the arts, if you do not, then you are not.” It worked.

Lindsey now lives with his wife in San Francisco.
