Eric Lindell: Putting the funk in blues

Photo by Shirley Kennedy

Alligator recording artist Eric Lindell recently brought his brand of blues to the Star Bar in the Little Five Points community of Atlanta, GA. The word “blues” can be used loosely when discussing Eric. His sound is more funk and soul with a blues vibe, but the emphasis is definitely on “funk.” Eric’s music is quite danceable and fun. When he’s on stage, the fact that Eric loves what he does becomes clear. Regardless of whether he is playing with a full band (including horns) or as a three-piece, Eric is always on point. The rich, smoky vocals for which he is so well known shine through, and he’s one heck of a guitar player. All he needs is a bass and drums, and he’s ready to entertain. In fact, Eric could be called a "one man band."

Eric plays several instruments. He started with bass, moved to guitar, but he is not content with that. He also plays harp, keys, and drums. Recently, Eric bought himself a sax and is learning that as well. How much is too much? Apparently, the possibilities are endless when it comes to Eric Lindell. His first love, however, is the harp, and he plays it oh so well.

An Eric Lindell show should be on every music lover’s “must attend” list. Learn more by visiting his site at
