Richard Shindell is a master songwriter and performer with an assured baritone and a marvelously fluid and intricate guitar technique. Songs such as “Are You Happy Now,” “Fishing,” “Reunion Hill” and “Transit” are peopled with deceptively complex characters, propelled by strong, folk-based melodies and delivered with a dry, deadpan wit.

“Mr. Shindell is a lapidary craftsman, matching pared-down imagery to forthright melodies. With quiet assurance, he finds new ways to portray familiar situations, from breakups to the loneliness of the long-distance trucker… He performs his own songs with grace and suspense. As he picks and strums intricate guitar parts, he sings with a concentration that reveals the tension behind his lyrics. His voice recalls James Taylor and Michael Stipe… The tone is reflective, but the dilemmas and disappointments couldn’t be more vivid.” – Jon Pareles, NY TIMES

“Richard Shindell is one of the finest songwriters of this or any other age.” – Joan Baez.
