Lyndsay Price is a Liverpool based spoken word artist with an interest in how art can be used as a tool to ignite social change.
Most recently, Lyndsay has acted as Lead Artist for I Know, I Wish, I Will; a nationwide project that has secondary school children competing in a London slam, a Lead Artist for Beatfreeks, creating commissioned poetry for Birmingham Bullring and Cruise Liverpool where she was commissioned to write poetry for three major cruise ships that came into the city. Her monthly poetry night Rhymes & Records ran for two years and was nominated as one of the top arts things to do in Liverpool August 2017. She has previously worked for/with: Liverpool City Council, Impacts 18 (Conference for Capital of Culture), Tomorrow’s Land, Wigan City Council, Writing on The Wall, Rapid Response Unit, Liverpool Pride, Liverpool Queer Collective and Merseyside Young People’s Association. Her monthly poetry night Rhymes & Records ran for two years and featured both local artists and European slam champions. Notable performances have been at: Threshold Festival, Sound City, The Last Word (support act for Debris Stevenson) and The Axis Slam (guest judge) She is a drama school graduate, a previous creative resident at mac birmingham and a National Youth Theatre of GB alumni.
Lyndsay writes mainly about: friendship, femininity, sisterhood, sexuality, fake news and 90’s movies. Brutally honest and almost aggressively vulnerable at times. Lyndsay’s work often takes on a philosophical nature, nearly always underpinned with an ounce of hope. She is inspired by the things that make us human, and spends her days attempting to name the feelings that often leave us speechless.
If not doing poetry, Lyndsay can be found; overthinking, googling her astrology chart or learning to read tarot in bars. She holds a masters degree in worrying and a PHD in second guessing.
“Within her gentle voice there is an undercurrent of raw strength, as she delivers her beautifully crafted poetry with poise and power”
– Rose Condo
“A true poet and spoken word performer. If the heart were an instrument, Lyndsay would know just how to play its strings.”
– Matty “Delboy” Delaney
“Lyndsay is a thought-provoking poet who’s stage presence is equally enigmatic and powerful. A natural performer, she has an innate ability to speak directly to others through her personal musing. Every piece is beautifully constructed and considered. Floral, thoughtful and introspective (with a little grit -when needed!)”
– Katie Nicholson
Most recent performances: We Want Women showcase, A Lovely Word, The Wordsmith Live, Wildnerness Hair Launch, Don’t Leave The Party Early (Gen & The Degenerates)
Created poetry for: Cruise Liverpool, Impacts 18 (Capital of Culture Conference) Beatfreeks/Birmingham Bullring, Liverpool City Council, Wigan City Council, RRU News, in addition to personal commissions for birthdays, weddings, christenings, funerals etc.
