"Well-traveled folk that's both hick and haunting. There's something strange in the water and Lindsey's drunk it up," writes Rollingstone of acclaimed Americana folk-rock artist Graham Lindsey. Known for his dark razor sharp lyrics, or what the Chicago Sun Times has called his "roadmap of the human condition," Lindsey's most recent offerings, 2009's We Are All Alone In This Together and it's counterpart The Mine EP, earned praise from the likes of Uncut and Q Magazines for the raw, stripped down approach he takes to American roots music.

At age 12, The Onion explains, Lindsey "was a member of the world's youngest punk band, Old Skull. His solo material couldn't be further from those days, though: He now plays dark Americana informed by his travels around the country." The now 33 year-old Lindsey first garnered widespread critical acclaim for his 2003 folk-rock debut, Famous Anonymous Wilderness, and achieved similar success with the world-wide release of follow up Hell Under The Skullbones in 2006. His songs have been featured in several independent films and appear on a slew of compilations, most notably Bloodshot Records For A Decade of Sin: 11 Years of Bloodshot Records, and Danielle Colby Presents: The Music of Farmageddon Records Vol. 1.

Lindsey's music has been said to fall somewhere in the middle of Bob Dylan, Tom Waits, and 'if Gillian Welch had a male counterpart,' while following in the traditions of Woody Guthrie and Leadbelly. But it does so with plenty of his own punk rock sensibilities in tact. Armed with a guitar, banjo, and an arsenal of harmonicas, Lindsey also performs with a drummer, his wife Tina.
