“Well-traveled folk that’s both hick and haunting. There’s something strange in the water and Lindsey’s drunk it up,” writes Rollingstone of acclaimed Americana folk-rock artist Graham Lindsey. Known for his dark razor sharp lyrics, or what the Chicago Sun Times has called his “roadmap of the human condition,” Lindsey’s most recent offerings, We Are All Alone In This Together and it’s counterpart The Mine EP, earned praise from the likes of Uncut and Q Magazines for the raw, stripped down approach he takes to American roots music.
Lindsey’s music has been said to fall somewhere in the middle of Bob Dylan, Tom Waits, and ‘if Gillian Welch had a male counterpart,’ while following in the traditions of Woody Guthrie and Leadbelly. But it does so with plenty of his own punk rock sensibilities in tact. Armed with a guitar, banjo, and an arsenal of harmonicas, Lindsey also performs with a drummer, his wife Tina.
