Richard Shindell

An enigmatic singer/songwriter whose work veered from the bitterly comic to the profoundly spiritual, Richard Shindell gained attention with the Fast Folk Musical Magazine series (which previously launched then-unknowns like Lyle Lovett and Nanci Griffith, as well). A native of Lakehurst, New Jersey, Shindell was a former seminary student whose first musical exposure came while playing guitar in the Razzy Dazzy Spasm Band alongside the young John Gorka; he began composing songs during the late 1980s, and quickly earning a word-of-mouth cult following. After a featured appearance on Christine Lavin's 1991 compilation When October Goes, he recorded his Shanachie label debut, Sparrow's Point, a year later; Blue Divide followed in 1994, and in 1997, Shindell resurfaced with Reunion Hill. He next teamed with Dar Williams and Lucy Kaplansky in the group Cry, Cry, Cry, issuing a self-titled LP in 1998; the solo Somewhere Near Paterson followed in early 2000. The rest of the decade treated Shindell well, with Sparrow's Point and South of Delia ranking among his finest work. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

Saw him in concert 3 days ago in Poway, CA. He's on tour now. ..also ran into him at our hotel. He is not only a great artist but a kind and easy going man. He also gave me tips on learning guitar. A true artist...tha n k f u l for him and his music.

We stumbled back into the Triple Door in Seattle an hour after Richard's last concert, and there he was at the bar winding down with the band. So we bought him a drink and had a long, friendly chat. Now we visit him whenever we're in Buenos Aires. Anything can happen.
