Eric Lindell writes music that is as at home on your front porch on a summer evening as it is in a hot sweaty club on a Saturday night. It is southern soul music, infused with R&B and a touch of New Orleans funk. It is blues music, glazed with a taste of country. It is simple, heartfelt song writing; melodic guitar solos and energized live performance.
Eric has been writing and recording songs for over 15 years, and is now touring behind the strength of his latest release I Still Love You. His band’s rhythm section, Myles Weeks on upright bass and Will McMains on drums, have been with Eric for over three years, making their performance on I Still Love You, as well as their live shows incredibly tight and intuitive. Both players are young, but have a swing feel of much more seasoned musicians. Rounding out the band are saxophonists Brad Walker and Chris Fitzgerald, whose horn section work serves the purpose of the church choir, answering in the affirmative to the soulful vocals, giving the music the feel of a packed bar in Memphis or New Orleans, where soul music reigns supreme.
CHICAGO SUN TIMES: “A tremendous talent with a poet’s soul…Lindell writes from the heart with a fully realized musical vision.”
VINTAGE GUITAR: “Lindell’s voice is drenched in time and experience…perfectly understated and will keep you dancing all year…his guitar is a workshop on soul playing.”
GUITAR PLAYER: “Unquestionably one of the hottest things at last year’s New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival…impressive super slinky guitar tone of classic blues and R&B origins with a taste of country twang…bound to win over roots music fans for years to come
