An expatriot New Yorker now living in Argentina, Richard Shindell is a meticulous craftsman of song whose recordings have been revered by critics and fans alike. Shindell is currently on tour in support of “Tomorrow You’re Going”, a collection of cover songs under the name of The Pine Hill Project with Lucy Kaplansky and produced by Larry Campbell. Shindell will release a solo collection of original songs in 2016. Meanwhile he’s launched a You Tube channel where,from an apartment inBuenos Aires, he is recording his entire repertoire of compositions, revisiting his earlier works with a bold intimacy.
Shindell is increasingly playing his 53’ Fender Esquire, moving into a more complex and open sound, while maintaining his focus on smart, passionate storytelling. Innovative,original and occasionally spiritual,Shindell’s songs weave tales that interchangeably champion the downtrodden, exalt the disaffected or wax empathetic to those lost in society’s fringes. As a feminist, he often composes from, and inspired by, a woman’s point of view.
Shindell’s songwriting ranges from lighthearted ballads to adulterous love songs,to dirges and diatribes that skillfully skewer poltitics, prejudice, war and religion, to the comic point of view of a cow stuck in a barbed wire fence.
“Occasionally an artist has a night that make skeptics even think,OK, maybe he is the best, Richard Shindell achieved this.” Ann Powers NY Times
“Compassionate intelligence that gleams through his songs” J.Pareles, NY Times
“Shindell is a master of the subtle narrative” James Ring Adams Wall Street Journal
