Brightside Blue

“This love story has a soundtrack.”  Lindsay Bellows and Ananda Vaughan have found the perfect complements in each other: Lindsay is a soulful songbird, who soars and dives over the lush textures of Ananda’s musical landscapes. Equal parts groove and melody, their songs keep audiences delightfully engaged — tapping feet, singing along, and basking in the love for life that radiates from this couple.

Ananda and Lindsay are storytellers, sprit callers, and songhealers on a mission to open a field of magic through music in which anything is possible. Sometimes bluesy and rocking, sometimes soft and ethereal, the sounds never fail to provide us with powerful medicine for the moment. 

Ananda trained for many years as a jazz guitarist, and has found inspiration in other guitar masters from rock, folk and world music. Lindsay grew up with pop and R&B music, and studied the influencers of her childhood idols — the soul and blues singers of the mid 20th century. The pair brings together the best of all these genres to create a sound that is authentically and uniquely their own. 

Ananda and Lindsay have had the privilege of sharing stages with some awesome friends and musicians including: Ayla Nereo, Wildlight, the Polish Ambassador, Peia, Deya Dova, Mariee Sioux, Handmade Moments, Sasha Rose, Shimshai, Sara Tone, and Blues Traveller; and have performed at festivals alongside other amazing dears like Fanna-Fi-Allah, Yaima, MaMuse, Amber Lily & Tubby Love, Mikey Pauker, Marya Stark, and Elijah Ray.

When they’re not touring, recording, or rehearsing for BrightSide Blue, Ananda tours with the Polish Ambassador band and teaches music. Lindsay is a voice coach and facilitates women’s singing circles. 

BrightSide Blue released BETWEEN WORLDS this past year. Their debut EP “Two Hearts, One Take” was released in Spring 2017.
