Lindsay Ell - Early Life

Early Life

Lindsay Ell was born in Calgary. Lindsay started playing the piano at six, but then discovered her father's collection of guitars scattered throughout the house. At eight, she switched instruments; "I fell in love with the guitar," says Lindsay. "It's a huge part of who I am." Lindsay fell in love with the blues and Ell started songwriting at age 10. Ell was valedictorian for her class in high school, from which she graduated a year early. She went on to study business at the University of Calgary, in addition to pursuing her music career.

Famous quotes containing the words early life, life and/or early:

    ... goodness is of a modest nature, easily discouraged, and when much elbowed in early life by unabashed vices, is apt to retire into extreme privacy, so that it is more easily believed in by those who construct a selfish old gentleman theoretically, than by those who form the narrower judgments based on his personal acquaintance.
    George Eliot [Mary Ann (or Marian)

    What if it should turn out eternity
    Was but the steeple on our house of life
    That made our house of life a house of worship?
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    [In early adolescence] she becomes acutely aware of herself as a being perceived by others, judged by others, though she herself is the harshest judge, quick to list her physical flaws, quick to undervalue and under-rate herself not only in terms of physical appearance but across a wide range of talents, capacities and even social status, whereas boys of the same age will cite their abilities, their talents and their social status pretty accurately.
    Terri Apter (20th century)
