Eric Lindell

Lindell grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area. He began playing in bands at the age of 15. Among his early musical influences were Fishbone and Black Flag. Lindell started playing in Northern California bars, first with the guitar, and later moving to bass, while working as a baker during the day to make ends meet. After a few years he had decided to move to New York City briefly, then moved in 1999 to New Orleans, where his creativity was able to flourish further. In New Orleans he often played with well-known drummers Johnny Vidacovich and Harold Ray Brown (formerly of War) as well as Galactic's Stanton Moore and Ivan Neville (who appears on West County Drifter). By 2005, he was well known on the New Orleans music scene, having appeared in local clubs and at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, and had gained enough attention to have Alligator Records sign him.

Eric's creativity and independent spirit is at the heart of his music and live performances. Soulful, rootsy, eclectic and inspired are some of the words that have been used to describe Eric Lindell and his music. Whether you catch Eric Lindell on disc or performing live, you'll understand why in a few short years he's one of the rising stars in Roots Rock.

CD Release Concert for "Sunday Morning." A curation of Lindell's favorite cuts by artists like Billy Preston, George Jones, Merle Haggard, Faron Young, Earnest Tub, Duke Bardwell, Ronnie Milsap and featuring Texas blues master Anson Funderburgh on guitar, the album oozes the confident, effortless soul of its mastermind. It's classic R&B tightness - the result of the stellar Sunliners - is expertly juxtaposed with the record's laissez-faire feel. And at the end of the day, isn't that the mark of great art? The ability to make something to look, or sound, easy? To appear simple, while all the while there is great care underpinning its nonchalance? Such is the case with Sunday Morning...
