'Promoter of the Year' - 2015 Yorkshire Gig Guide Grassroots Awards
With a brand new album, entitled 'Careless', about to be released on 9th September, we are doubly thrilled to welcome one of America's greatest ever singer songwriters (and one of our personla favourites!) back to TLR for the first time in three years. Richard doesn't do big tours in the UK, just a few dates, and we have people coming from all over the country, so make sure you grab your tickets and hear something very special indeed.
An expatriate New Yorker now living in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Richard Shindell is one of the great craftsmen of song, whose eight studio albums and 2 live recordings have been revered by critics and fans alike. Innovative, original and occasionally spiritual, Shindell's songs weave tales that champion the downtrodden, exalt the disaffected or wax empathetic to those lost to society's fringes. Born in New Jersey, Richard grew up in Port Washington, Long Island. His travels, both literal and spiritual and have taken him to a Zen Buddhist monastery, busking in Paris, back to New York and to Buenos Aires, where he now lives with his family.
