Rochester, New York singer-songwriter Brian Lindsay adds 10 more rock n’ roll gems to his already impressive songwriting catalog with his 4th full CD release entitled, Revival.

Review- “Lanky roots rocker and Rochester hardcore troubadour, Brian Lindsay has put out a new record titled “Revival”, a redemption-seeking, guitar twangin’, walls shakin, rubber burnin’ good time”. Frank de Blasé rochesterbeacon.com 4/15/22
Lindsay’s first record The Crossing (2005) featured the single “Eastside of the River” that charted for eleven straight weeks. It was added to over 45 Triple-A format radio stations nationally and was played and critiqued globally. The success from “The Crossing” helped secure an invitation to perform on the coveted OnStage Concert Series recorded and broadcast from Rochester’s PBS affiliate, WXXI TV which resulted in a live DVD release.
His second album release, Esperanza (2009) built on that success and was added to more than 60 Triple-A format stations. The song “King of the Mountain” held the #1 spot at commercial station WOCM 98.1 (Ocean City, MD) for two straight weeks. Brian’s "King of the Mountain" was selected for ESPN's NASCAR Now national broadcast.
The 3rd record, The Monkey, The Tango and the Boogaloo (2014) was added to over 50 Triple-A Radio stations across the US, featuring the first focus track, “Heart and Soul”.
The Brian Lindsay Band has shared the stage with The Smithereens, Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes, Shooter Jennings, Donna the Buffalo, Poppa Chubby, The Outlaws and The Little River Band to name a few.

Is it the water that they drink from the river that runs north into the great Ontario? Possibly it's the music education that runs through the community, up from the Grade Schools to the mighty Eastman. Perhaps it's as simple as the five month Winters and the studio stocked music rooms that brewed this creation of sonic beauty. Whatever it is, here comes a great new release by hometown Rocker … Brian Lindsay.
Brian Lindsay has just dropped his fourth album of original compositions! REVIVAL could easily be compared to any number of world class musical products. Let's just say that Brian has again captured the soul of the region, that part of New York State that is in-between the Finger Lakes and Western New York … it's the sound of the Genesee!
