Celebrated Nashville-based artist Lindsay Lou came out of a period of loss and change with a deeply personal album, Queen of Time, her debut for Kill Rock Stars. The album follows Lou on a path of heartbreak, discovery and resilience after going through a divorce, the pandemic lockdowns and the death of her beloved grandmother. Queen of Time was produced by Dave O'Donnell (Sheryl Crow, Heart, James Taylor) and mixed by Tucker Martine (First Aid Kit, Madison Cunningham) and features a Who's Who's of Lou's friends from the Americana and bluegrass community: Billy Strings, Sam Bush, Sierra Ferrell, Jerry Douglas, Molly Tuttle, Greensky Bluegrass, Peter Rowan, and Leftover Salmon.

Queen of Time garnered praise in Rolling Stone ("Lindsay Lou is poised to be the next bluegrass queen," Relix, PBS, The Bluegrass Situation and Under the Radar, among others. The title track explores the continued theme of duality. Lou explains."Sometimes you feel like the queen of time, and sometimes you feel like a wishing well. The truth is you're always both and all of it at once. It can feel overwhelming, but self-knowledge is the ultimate power."

The daughter of a coal miner and millwright, and the granddaughter of a teacher gone Rainbow Gathering healer, Lou honed her honest and resonant style with her bluegrass-inspired band, Lindsay Lou & The Flatbellys, and Michigan supergroup, Sweet Water Warblers (Rachael Davis, May Erlewine), excavating elements of bluegrass, folk, Americana, and soulful pop for their emotional depths.

 Named among NPR’s “12 Best Live Performances” in 2015, Lou has long been beloved as a live performer, from Telluride Bluegrass Festival to Stagecoach, Celtic Connections to Australia’s National Folk Festival, and a “Can’t Miss Act” at AmericanaFest—not to mention acclaim from PBS, No Depression, Billboard, Holler, Paste, and The Bluegrass Situation, among other outlets. But on Queen of Time, Lou captures a new arc of haloed beauty, becoming unattainable in her own way—a vibrant, powerful woman who can share herself with the world, and yet define a mystic sense of inner self as well.
