“Sense of Reality”: Lindsey Hinkle’s Latest Release as a Singer-Songwriter

Folk-Americana singer/songwriter and recording artist Lindsey Hinkle recently released her newest single called “Sense of Reality.” You can listen to the song HERE!

With endearing lyrics like I get so nervous when you’re around, butterflies keep my feet off the ground, “Sense of Reality” tells a stunning story about unexpected love.

“I wrote this song about a crush I had on a co-worker,” Lindsey shared. “I had a photo I took of us and realized I was in love with someone, who I thought, was way out of my league. Turns out she wasn’t and that feeling was surreal – like no high I’d ever felt at the time. Playing this song for her launched what would be the beginning of my longest relationship to date.”

In addition to releasing her own music, Lindsey is also a published songwriter and is excited to announce that Drake White and Colbie Caillat will be releasing “Power of a Woman” (written by Lindsey Hinkle, Drake White, and Kelli Johnson) on October 7th.

About Lindsey Hinkle:
Lindsey Hinkle is a self-taught musician armed with resonating lyrics that are filled with insight into the human condition, as well as haunting and penetrating vocals that seem to echo mercilessly inside your head. She has been writing and performing original material since age 13, and has opened for artists such as Keith Urban, Lady A, Sugarland, Little Big Town, Thompson Square, Drake White, Shawn Mullins, Marc Broussard, Jennifer Nettles, Sugarland, Darius Rucker, Indigo Girls, Kristy Lee and Michelle Malone. 

Lindsey cites Beth Hart, Patty Griffin, Sheryl Crow, John Mayer, Indigo Girls and James Taylor as her primary musical influences. Lindsey’s style of both music and lyrics have often been compared to the stylings of John Mayer by industry critics and professionals.

At age 17, Lindsey won the Eddie’s Attic Open Mic Shoot Out in Atlanta, besting singer/songwriters with more than double her years’ worth of experience. 

In 2019, Lindsey moved to Nashville, TN with a big purpose – to get sober. While living in a halfway house, she began writing music as a way to cope with the struggles she had experienced. Now, with almost 5 years of sobriety under her belt, Lindsey uses her music to spread joy to others. “I believe my purpose is to create music with the intent of joy and/or emotional awareness. This helps me heal and allows me to forgive like those who have forgiven me.”

In December 2021, Lindsey was mentioned in Billboard and People Magazine for co-writing Drake White’s “Power of a Woman,” alongside her lifelong friend Kelli Johnson. The song has garnered over 13.5 million streams on Spotify alone since its release in late 2021. On October 7, 2023, Drake White and Colbie Caillat will be releasing a duet-version of the song.

Since the release of “Power of a Woman,” Lindsey has decided to embark on her own journey recording, producing, mixing, and releasing her first full-length album that has been literally a lifetime in the making. She released the first single off the album, “Shades of Gray,” on September 1, 2023, which received rave reviews from both press and fans. The song currently has over 11K streams on Spotify. She released “Sense of Reality” on October 1, 2023.
