LINDSAY MCCAULíS NATIONAL DEBUT, IF IT LEADS ME BACK, OUT THIS WEEK
Critics Give Newcomer Rank Among Established Female Powerhouses

Songstress Reprises Role on Casting Crownsí ìCome to the Wellî Tour


(Nashville, Tenn.) Jan. 17, 2012 -- Reunion Records singer/songwriter Lindsay McCaulís debut label release, If It Leads Me Back, releases today. McCaul, touted by critics as ìone to watchî in 2012, is already being compared to noted female vocalists including Francesca Battistelli, Natalie Grant and Nichole Nordeman, while the newcomer continues to garner fans as a guest artist on Casting Crownsí ìCome to the Wellî tour.

Produced by Jason Ingram and Rusty Varenkamp (Tenth Avenue North, Chris Tomlin, Bebo Norman), If It Leads Me Back comprises 11 tracks revealing considerable depth and pathos. McCaulís keen songwriting paired with her shimmering voice only compels the listener deeper into the albumís overall experience.

Such star quality has impressed critics early on, as NewReleaseTuesday.com gave the album five out of five stars saying, ìshe [McCaul] gets my nomination as the best new artist and female vocalist Iíve heard in the past year.î CCM Magazine noted ìLindsay McCaul is entering Christian music at a time when the top female vocalists are simply incredible...and yet, this newcomer easily holds her own.î JesusFreakHideout.com agrees, ìThe current trends for women in music tend toward huge, powerful vocals, but McCaul's soothing, restrained alto matches her down-to-earth musical personality. The result is something friendly to the radio listener, but unique enough to win over this music fan.î

McCaulís popularity is boosted by her high visibility as a featured opening act on multi-platinum selling, GRAMMYÆ, AMA and 2010 Dove Award-winning Artist of the Year Casting Crownsí ìCome to the Wellî tour. McCaul was initially introduced to audiences last fall as part of the tourís first run, which included a string of more than 15 sell-out performances, playing before 155,000+ people. Invited back for a 44-date spring leg, McCaul will again join the tour in major markets like Washington D.C., Philadelphia, Oklahoma City, Minneapolis, and Houston, among others.
