NOLA-based roots-rocker Eric Lindell stops at FTC Warehouse
New Orleans-based roots-rocker Eric Lindell, touring in support of his latest Alligator Records release, “Revolution in Your Heart,” will perform at the Fairfield Theatre Company’s Warehouse Friday, March 22.
“Revolution in Your Heart” was recorded at Studio In The Country in Bogalusa, La., and produced by Lindell and Benjamin Mumphrey. Lindell plays just about everything on the recording — guitar, bass, keyboards, organ, harmonica — except drums, which are handled by Willie McMains.
The only other musician on the record is keyboardist Kevin McKendree (Delbert McClinton, Brian Setzer Orchestra, Tinsley Ellis), who plays piano on one song.
The 12 original songs — many of them autobiographical — combine sunshiny melodies and thick, greasy grooves, and paint vivid pictures of everyday living.
Asked about the timeless appeal of his songs, Lindell said in a news release, “Music runs deep, it’s a powerful thing.”
Fairfield Theatre Company, 70 Sanford St. Friday, March, 22, 8 p.m. $35. 203-259-1036.
