A compelling songwriter who gives voice to well-wrought characters
Since his first album, Sparrow's Point (1992), Shindell has developed a voice once described as "rich" and "reminiscent of REM's Michael Stipe," but also compared to James Taylor and Gordon Lightfoot

Shindell's songs give voice to a myriad of fully-wrought characters. As one reviewer put it, "Richard Shindell often speaks for other people. Fictitious people, such as the jaded stockbroker of "Confession," or the emboldened refugee of "You Stay Here..."

He has received glowing reviews in prominent publications (the New York Times, the Boston Globe) and South of Delia landed on Folk Alley's Best of 2007 list. Shindell collaborates with some of today's best singer-songwriters, including Lucy Kaplansky, Dar Williams, and Eliza Gilkyson.

"Richard Shindell has emerged as one of the folk circuit's most quietly lucid songwriters, with a compassionate intelligence that gleams through his songs."

Don't let his Brooklyn address fool you. Brian Dunne writes and sings songs in the folksy Americana tradition you'd expect from Nashville, Austin, or Hibbing, Minnesota. He describes his 2015 album, Songs from the Hive, as "a love letter to the music of The Band and Bob Dylan," and the devotion shows.

As one reviewer said Dunne's music is, "characterized by sharp lyrical prowess and country-influenced vocals, his roots winding through the sound and style of his songwriting and performing."

In addition to Dylan, he lists Sam Cooke, Tom Waits, and Bruce Springsteen among his early influences.
