“What he played did as much to form my music as my writing
those songs…This is one of the great slide players of all time.”

Jackson Browne, Rolling Stone 5/27/10

“A David Lindley performance isn’t just an awe-inspiring
demonstration of string prowess. It’s a portal to far-flung
realms, a magic carpet ride skittering around the globe offering vivid glimpses of Jamaica, the Mississippi Delta, Madagascar,Turkey and Cuba.”

San Jose Mercury News 4/15/10

* Lindley’s “Soul Of A Man” was featured prominently in an episode of AMC’s drama series, Hell on Wheels, which aired August 2012 and stars Anson Mount (Third Watch, Law & Order) and Colm Meaney (Con-Air, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine).
*A featured performer with Jackson Browne’s band of almost 20 years, the two reunited for a tour across Europe and the US in the Summer of 2010.
*On record and in performance, David and Jackson have a musical association reaching back almost 40 years. David’s legendary stringed-instrument virtuosity has been showcased on many of Browne’s albums, beginning with 1973’s For Everyman, and on classics such as Late For The Sky and The Pretender (the
latter two both on Rolling Stone’s list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time).
Browne also produced Lindley’s 1983 LP, the acclaimed El Rayo-X.
*Throughout this long and distinguished career, Lindley has been one of the world’s most in demand session musicians, lending his skills to the recorded works of Bob Dylan, Rod Stewart, Linda Ronstadt, Crosby, Stills and Nash, Warren Zevon,
Ben Harper and many others.
*Renowned as a member of the band Kaleidoscope, and leader of his own band ElRayo-X.
*In 1979, Lindley began working with old friend Ry Cooder on Bop Till You Drop and The Long Riders soundtrack, a musical collaboration that lasts to this day, spawning many recording projects and several world tours as an acoustic duo.
*The David Lindley electro-acoustic performance effortlessly combines American folk, blues, and bluegrass traditions with elements from African, Arabic, Asian, Celtic, Malagasy, and Turkish musical sources. Lindley incorporates an incredible
array of stringed instruments including but not limited to Kona and Weissenborn Hawaiian lap steel guitar, Turkish saz and chumbus, Middle Eastern oud, and Irish bouzouki.
