“Soulful Rochester rockers The Mighty High and Dry have struck a nerve on its new single, "I Was Living Here." With guest vocals by Brian Lindsay and Danielle Ponder, each weighing in on a verse, the band addresses nascent issues like the Dakota Access Pipeline and Black Lives Matter. Despite the subjects' frustrations, it proves good music can confront bad times — and that good music should confront bad times."

I had some time to kill, so I ventured over to Parcel 5 to catch the Brian Lindsay Band put on one hell of a show. The band clearly loves Neil Young, but as exemplified by the new material the sextet dished out, it's getting serious on its own compositions. There's some righteous anger burning behind those eyes and in those hands. It was cool to hear it bounce off downtown walls before heading for the sky. Keep on rockin' in the Fringe world.


The record company is going to have to front me another copy of Brian Lindsay's "The Monkey, The Tango, and the Boogaloo," because I ate the first one. No shit, I got done with the preliminary spin, smeared some peanut butter on it and ate it. Good records call to mind comparisons and metaphors, but only the truly great ones can be called delicious. Lindsay is one of my favorite singers of the hardcore troubadour ilk and he comes out thundering on this new album's first track — and my new fave — "What Does Love Mean To You?" like a runaway tractor. "The Bully" is a tres cool tug-o-war between Jersey blue-eyed soul and straight-up rock 'n' roll. "Everyday" is a classic example of urban Americana; a "just right" blend of red clay and asphalt. "Seven Days Seven Nights" with its snake shake and voodoo is a new harder rockin' side to Lindsay, I've only, up to this point, heard live. The man even gets down with a pretty piano ballad toward the end of the affair with "King Of Broken Hearts." "The Monkey, The Tango, and the Boogaloo" is an 11-song send up to an era when LPs were enjoyed front to back, not just as collections of potential hits. This is a work of art I highly recommend you spend some time with. In fact get two; one to share with a friend ... or eat.

“This is knocking you to your knees great music. Roots Rock at its finest.”

Roots Music Report

“Concert Review: Brian Lindsay Band, Humped the Chevy across town after that to catch the tail end of Brian Lindsay’s set at Lovin’ Cup. Lindsay and his band were in the home stretch when I rolled up and were nice enough to break out one of my favorite tunes of theirs, “Summerville.” Lindsay’s rock ’n’ roll is rivaled only by his prolific pen. Lindsay is our Boss. ”

“Brian’s music is pure Americana; plugged in Americana that is full of spunk and life. He possesses a Springsteen type swagger and exudes the same confidence delivering his well crafted tunes with guitars blazing.”

“Brian Lindsay wanted to make a record about summer, and he's done just that. It's not too hard to imagine the guitars and imagery of Esperanza blasting out of passing car windows on a beautiful summer day.”

“Brian Lindsay's "King of the Mountain" #1 at commercial WOCM 98.1 in Ocean City, Maryland for 2 weeks straight! ”

“Lindsay’s sophomore solo release is a striking piece of work. Lindsay consistently elevates these songs above their station with his passionate delivery and spot-on arrangements. ”

“Brian Lindsay's Esperanza is currently # 18 on the New York State Roots music charts!”

The Crossing

GFI Music

If he hadn't mentioned Sea Breeze on the first cut with the knowledge of a man that had actually been there, I'd swear Brian Lindsay was from Nashville. And I mean the kind of Nashville of folks like Jim Lauderdale and Lucinda Williams, not those nouveau rednecks that got Bush re-elected. Lindsay's The Crossing seems rooted in Americana but offers slick, almost classic rock riffs and harmonies before you think there's just one side to the man. These are really, really good songs. If Van Morrison were a cowboy... who knows. Just check out "Forever Yours (Marianne)."
