Lyndsey Coonrod is a singer-songwriter based in Nashville, TN. She plays a mix of contemporary Christian with hints of country-pop. She strives to create music that is full of depth and experience, but in an accessible and uplifting way. Lyndsey Coonrod’s music captures the walk of life and this journey we’re all on together.
“Every Day” is Lyndsey Coonrod’s new single. From the start, the softness of the acoustic guitar picking and the smoothness of Coonrad’s voice draw you in for what is a notably personal and open account of love. The songwriter’s ability to set the scene and to move from the imagery of the verses to the intimacy and central sentiments of the subsequent sections makes for something that manages to captivate on its own strength alone. Nothing fancy or overly flashy is needed to brighten up the energy of “Every Day”, the realness of Lyndsey’s lyrics work with the genuine vibrancy of the performance. It feels very much like a live performance, a moment of truth captured, with nothing to hide behind. You can hear Lyndsey’s connection to the subject matter, and that makes all the difference. We can’t wait to hear more from this up and coming artist!

Hey Lyndsey Coonrod! Great to have you here on BuzzMusic. Any words you'd like to share with our readers about the way you articulate your music? How is “Every Day” different from your previous singles?
I think I’ve been really focusing on articulating authenticity and relatability within my music and intentionally making sure there’s a deeper message embedded within each song recently. I think that’s how “Every Day” really stands out from my other releases. It’s probably the rawest of the songs I’ve released so far and really tells a story. There’s a certain depth to it that I’m excited about in comparison to my other singles. I’ve been working towards my sound as an artist and I really think this song is a good step towards securing that sound like my own.
“Every Day" obviously had a powerful and captivating soundscape but are you able to dive deeper into the honest meaning of the track?
This track was written from the perspective of what could be in finding love and diving into that without hesitation. It’s definitely a wedding song, so it’s not about my life personally, but I tried to envision what that would be like. I kept in mind that neither two people in a relationship are perfect, but they can be just right for each other so in a sense it feels “perfectly imperfect”, which is a re-occurring theme throughout this song. I think society tends to romanticize lots of these concepts and set unrealistic standards when it’s really quite simple. You don’t need that perfect-romantic-comedy love story, because, in reality, love takes time and is a constant growing process rather than at first sight. It’s still just as beautiful but just in different ways than the world sometimes tells us it is. Sometimes, the simplest things can be the most beautiful.
In your years of performing, what has been your most memorable moment or achievement in your career?
So, I’m in my last year at Belmont University and each year the university hosts 4 showcases, each separated by genre (country, Christian, urban pop and rock). There’s an audition process in which they narrow it down to four artists and each showcase is produced and marketed and treated as if it is a professional music industry event. I got the opportunity to perform as an artist in the Christian showcase in the Curb Event Center this year, which was so much fun. I think that’s the biggest venue I’ve been able to be a part of so far and it was such a rewarding process. It was awesome too because I got to have all of my friends up on stage with me because they were generous enough to be in my band. Everyone was so encouraging and did such a great job of putting it all together and producing it and it was an incredibly rewarding experience.
How do you personally feel about live performance? Would you say that you prefer the live performance aspect of music more over the writing/recording process?
I honestly love both aspects so it’s hard to choose one over the other. The reason I write and record music is to make an impact on listeners, so performing live is a way to visibly see the impact my music can make, which is really cool. But the writing and recording process is a necessity to get to that point as well and it is always so amazing to work with such incredibly talented musicians within the studio. Seeing my music go from a scratch recording to this enhanced masterpiece in production is an incredible experience, so both are equally valuable and rewarding to me. Being able to share what’s on my heart and see how others respond to it is such a cool process overall.
It was amazing showcasing "Every Day" to our listeners and getting to know you as an artist in the process! What are you currently working on?
Yes, thank you so much! I’m actually working on a lot of exciting things right now. I have around four new songs already recorded that I’m planning on releasing as an EP in the coming year, with potentially a couple more. I also have a music video in the works for one of those songs that I’m really excited about. I was blessed to work with incredible teams on both of those projects and I’m so excited to see how it all turns out. I think this new upcoming material is an even more accurate representation of me as an artist and contains deeper messages that I’m super excited to share with everyone!
