Lindsay McCaul

Lindsay McCaul is a graduate of Moody Bible Institute in Chicago.  She graduated with a focus in linguistics and translations - hoping to secure a job translating the Bible into other languages.  Born in Abilene, Texas, McCaul moved to Florida when she was nine and lived so close to the Space Center that she remembers hearing the Shuttle rattle her windows when it launched.

Lindsay rememebers sneaking out of bed to turn on her radio and listen to Christian radio late into the night.  She'd sing along, she'd cry and worship each night.  It became her passion.  She started writing songs before she even turned twelve.

Songwriting became the filter through which McCaul explored her relationship with God and expressed what He was revealing to her. She continued to write after she moved to Chicago to attend Moody Bible Institute.  A worship pastor at the school signed her up to lead worship, despite Lindsay's begging to not do it.  She faced her fears and flourished.  Soon she began leading worship at Chicago’s Harvest Bible Chapel, a 14,000-member church.

Her original songs became favorites with the congregation and began to attract notice outside the church. McCaul’s music came to the attention of industry titans Mark Hall, of Casting Crowns, who invited her on tour with the band; and Jason Ingram, who helped produce her album.

More recently, Lindsay and her husband moved to suburban Nashville to join the huge collection of Christian artists.

Familial Fact: Lindsay has a twin sister.
