Son of a preacher-man, American singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist Jon Lindsay was born in Portland, Oregon, and currently resides in North Carolina.
While honing his solo songwriting craft (he’s been writing and performing songs since the age of three) and compiling an arsenal of riveting material, he’s also been busy cutting his teeth the last decade on stages all over the USA playing solo and fronting rock bands (The Young Sons, The Catch Fire, Carlisle), and touring as a multi-instrumentalist, keyboardist and singer with Benji Hughes, Nicole Atkins and a laundry list of others.
His songs are meticulously sculpted instrumentally and lyrically, and span the gamut of pop and rock sonic textures, the constant thread being his unmistakable, sweet and acrobatic vocals. Live and on records there are traces of his obsessions (Zevon, Elliott Smith, Guided By Voices, Morrissey), but never more than the slightest homage; he’s got more than enough to say about his own agenda, which is always theatrical, full of consummate showmanship and dynamics.
Available everywhere now is the critical darling “Magic Winter & the Dirty South” EP (2009), and August 17, 2010 brought the release of his official debut full-length Escape From Plaza-Midwood on Chocolate Lab Records.
