When JJ Cale goes dancing across the floor during your sound check, you know you’re doing it right; one more reason for the Lindells’ well deserved reputation for making music that’s “engaging, wide-ranging and diversified”. It''s inspired by the deep, high mountains and vast, lonely deserts of the American West. Their songs get inside you and dance down into your dreams - you just might wake with one of their songs in your head!
"Kim and Chris Lindell have been blessed with a rare gift being partners in love and in music...a grace to witness, The Lindells [music] is a gift to all, and most satisfying for your heart and soul."
Bob Matthews -(July 12, 2006) Producer & recording engineer for the Grateful Dead. Producer for “Live Dead”, “Skull and Roses” and “Live Dead”, as well as engineering for “Workingman’s Dead”,” Garcia” and “Ace”.
With standout songwriting and their “signature sound”, the Lindells burn through and defy all kinds of musical boundaries with music that''s fierce and stunning. Based on breathtaking vocal harmonies and amazing, intuitive playing, the Lindells’ music grooves with their own brand of psychedelic mountain folk and rock - it''s intimate, supple and sultry, with a definitive underlying hard-earned grit.
The magic of the Lindell''s live performances comes from a celebration of love and life, a rare meeting of musical minds that often transcends this earthly plane. Their song craft reveals an essential understanding of people and place through visionary lyrics and brilliant melody. As a duo, or with their band, the Lindells'' music is captivating, filled with high energy and fun, an interplay of shadow and light.
"... bona fide mountain music...it''s the tone, attitude, and subject matter...as much as the style. [The Lindell''s music] translates intimacy and awareness into...shivers of sympathetic comprehension"
John Fayhee - Mountain Gazette (Jun 1, 2008)
Chris Lindell plays an unbelievable atmospheric blend of fiery acoustic and electric guitar that combines rhythm and lead into one singular, memorable style. Kim Lindell swings the backbeat with the delicate sound of thundering, electric bass – on a semi-hollow body beauty dubbed "Tiger Rose".
In the finest songwriting traditions of American music, the Lindells songs are vibrant and spare. Writing and singing together since they were kids in high school, Kim and Chris Lindell explore the deep intensity of life lived fully, often at the edge - whether that edge is 3000 feet up a sheer cliff, 14,000 feet high on a winter cloaked mountain or wandering desert canyons.
Betty Cantor-Jackson and Bob Matthews (Grateful Dead recording legends) invited the Lindells to play the 2006 Grateful Fest at Nelson Ledges, Ohio. Betty also contributed her beautiful, signature sound to songs on the Lindells'' CD, "Event Horizon", a folk based duo recording of incredible original music with an exceptional cover of “Last Lonely Eagle” of New Riders of the Purple Sage fame.
Starting with their original song “Harvest” from their 1997 record “Roam”, through their EP "the Barefoot Sessions", 2006’s "Event Horizon", and Chris’ solo acoustic, “Somewhere Below Zero” (2010), the Lindell''s songs receive regular airplay on radio stations such as KPFA, KPIG, KWMR, KSUT, KDUR, KOTO, KVNF, KSJD, KTAO, KZMU and others. Kim and Chris Lindell have also played many engaging live broadcast, in-studio performances in support of public and community radio.
Having shared the stage with various artists including their hero JJ Cale, Arlo and Sarah Lee Guthrie, Robert Earl Keen, Creedence Clearwater Revisited, Rusted Root, Dark Star Orchestra, Donna Jean & the Tricksters, David Gans, Natalie MacMaster, Laura Love and many more, the Lindells’ music shines strong and bright. For your next road trip, get the Lindells'' music - it rolls on down that long and winding road, loose-limbed, through sage and sand, hot nights and honky-tonks to the mountains’ cool, clear light of day…
"Great original tracks! I always think [the Lindells’] songs stand out - great vocals and harmonies. See this wonderful band!"
