June 5 – Eric Lindell & Co
Winery Sponsor – Jaxon Keys
Concert Sponsor – Redwood Credit Union
With his musical roots planted in Northern California, where he has an almost maniacally-loyal following, Lindell’s music blossomed in New Orleans. He performs 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 songwriting, melodic guitar solos, and an energized live performance.
Eric has been recording and performing his brand of Americana music for over 20 years. Currently his band’s rhythm section, comprised of Myles Weeks on upright bass and Will McMains on drums, have been with Eric for over four years, making their live performances incredibly tight and intuitive. Both players are young but have a swing feel of much more seasoned musicians…making for pure honest American roots music at its finest.
"You can tell within the first few seconds of a Lindell tune who it is...which many artists spend a lifetime trying to achieve.” - Black Mold, WWOZ New Orleans
