When singer/songwriter/vocalist Eric Lindell first hit the national music scene with his 2006 Alligator Records debut CHANGE IN THE WEATHER, critics and fans alike celebrated the arrival of a roots rocker with dozens of unforgettable original songs. With his musical roots planted in Northern California, Lindell s music blossomed in New Orleans. His combination of sweet, blue-eyed soul with foot-stomping R&B, swamp pop, funk and blues have won him critical and popular acclaim across the country. As he toured the U.S., his fan base grew, and before long clubs and festivals were filled with happy, dancing people singing the words to every song. Now he s back with LOW ON CASH, RICH IN LOVE, a collection filled with solid grooves, insightful lyrics and one emotionally rich song after another.
Recorded at Piety Street Studio in New Orleans, LOW ON CASH, RICH IN LOVE will delight Lindell s fan base and will capture the attention of music lovers all over the globe. From the first single Lay Back Down to the undeniable groove of a totally reworked version of Gil Scott-Heron s Lady Day And John Coltrane (the album s sole cover song) to the New Orleans bounce of Tried And True, LOW ON CASH, RICH IN LOVE is Eric Lindell at his very best. His sinewy and soulful vocals recall 1970s Van Morrison, while his guitar and harmonica work are uniquely his own. With sweet saxophones punching in all the right places and grooves building on top of each other, Eric Lindell has created a timeless collection of songs.
