Biography

Specializing in an unsettled, introspective lo-fi with textured chords, Snail Mail is the project of singer, songwriter, and guitarist Lindsey Jordan. She tours and records with a rhythm section. After releasing her debut EP in 2016, she graduated from high school and signed with Matador Records, which issued her first album, Lush, in 2018. Raised in suburban Baltimore, Maryland, Jordan started playing guitar at the age of five. As a teenager, she took lessons from Mary Timony (Helium, Ex Hex). Having already made other friends and connections in the Baltimore and D.C. music scenes by her mid-teens, in 2016, at the age of 16, she released her debut EP, Habit, on Priests-run Sister Polygon Records. Recorded and produced by Priests' G.L. Jaguar and Jason Sauvage (Sneaks), it featured Jordan on vocals and guitar, Ryan Viera on bass, and Shawn Durham on drums. An NPR Tiny Desk concert and an Audiotree Live EP followed in 2017, as did tours with Waxahatchee, Girlpool, and Beach Fossils. Before the year was through, Snail Mail signed a record deal with Matador. Recorded with producer Jake Aron, who had engineered albums for Solange and Grizzly Bear, Snail Mail's full-length debut, Lush, arrived in June 2018. It saw Jordan's personal lyrics and dreamy guitar style backed by touring bandmates Alex Bass (bass) and Ray Brown (drums). That same month, they opened shows in New England for Belle and Sebastian. The band went back into the studio in 2019, releasing the single "The 2nd Most Beautiful Girl in the World." ~ Marcy Donelson
