Idgy Dean (aka Lindsay Sanwald) is a musical artist, creative producer, and spiritual teacher based in Brooklyn, NYC. She has devoted her life to writing, recording, and touring her mystical/queer/feminist one-woman psychedelic rock shows across the USA and abroad.

She was one of the 70 hand-picked artists from around the world to attend the Red Bull Music Academy in Montreal in 2016, where she was mentored by musical luminaries including Björk, Pauline Oliveros, Susan Rogers, Jam & Lewis, Deradoorian, tUnE-yArDs, Dev Hynes, and Matias Aguayo. She had her TV debut on The Chris Gethard Show with special guest star Diddy and co-produced a track with Hip Hop legend Darryl McDaniels of Run-DMC.

Lindsay studied comparative literature at Sarah Lawrence College, served as a Fulbright Scholar in Argentina, and recently wrapped up three years of monastic study at Harvard Divinity School, where she earned a Master of Divinity degree. She was selected as the 2022 Graduate Student Speaker for Harvard University’s 369th Commencement.

Idgy Dean's latest record, A Chronicle of Lightning Bolts (April 2023), was her final Harvard Divinity thesis project: a one-woman mystical rock opera of songs and visions composed during pandemic times.

She is presently developing new material while teaching meditation & comparative theology to private students and groups.
