Richard Shindell is a New Yorker living in Argentina: a craftsman and a real wizard of song. He's played for coins in the Paris subway, and he's studied for the priesthood. His gift for profound storytelling songs drew him into the world of folk music. Richard Shindell champions the downtrodden, exalts the disaffected, skewers prejudice, war, and religious intolerance. He steps into and fully inhabits the various personalities his songs create—some of them female. In the words of No Depression, "Shindell tells great stories with an eye for critical detail while never losing sight of the big picture. He works a well-worn stretch of singer-songwriter pavement, but his wonderfully spiritual lyrical sense and intimate compositions ultimately distinguish him." The Valley Advocate in Massachusetts has called Richard Shindell "the thinking man's folk singer," and you're not going to hear better-crafted songs anywhere.
