It's difficult to believe that Eric Lindell has ever lived anywhere but New Orleans.

Streaming Audio

The guitarist, singer and songwriter moved there in 1999, but his sound is pure Fat City groove, like you hear drifting from that cool old lounge on Dauphine where the walls are covered with snapshots of the famous and those that should have been. Lindell's voice sounds like what might have happened if Van Morrison had been born in a Louisiana parish and grew up under trees dripping with Spanish moss instead of Belfast.

Born and raised in the Bay area, Lindell self-produced his 1996 debut album "Bring It Back" and won the John Lennon Songwriting Competition in 1999 with his song "Kelly Ann." He moved to New Orleans that same year and his music took a different direction, bending to the group experience of playing music rather than playing solo.

Lindell has released several albums, ranging from 1996 to his 2012 release "I Still Love You" and the sound of the session is slinky, dripping with saxophone and the ease that you find only in the Big Easy.
