Lindsey Yung Performance and Interview
The first on-air studio performance of the new decade brought singer-songwriter Lindsey Yung to The Time Machine. Lindsey's sophomore release "Opal Essence" has been a part of our playlists since 2008. The talented San Diego artist began singing as a child, making her professional debut at age 5, in the musical "South Pacific". The rest, as they say, is history.
Lindsey’s music has received recognition on many levels. She won the 2006 Los Angeles Music Award for the category: Female Singer/Songwriter of the Year and was nominated by popular vote for a 2007 San Diego H.A.T. award (Honoring Acoustic Talent Award) in the category of "best vocalist". She received a 2008 "honor award" for her song "With Every Breath" from the 9th Annual Great American Song Contest and was nominated for a 2008 and 2009 Asian Heritage Award in the category of "performing arts". "Opal Essence" was included on the coveted list of "Best Albums of 2008" put out by KGRL FM and The Time Machine's "Most Played Albums of 2008". Most recently, Lindsey’s song "It Doesn’t Get Better Than This" made it to the finals of the Kauai Music Festival Songwriting Competition 2009.
