An expatriate New Yorker now living in Argentina, Richard Shindell is a meticulous craftsman of song whose recordings have been revered by critics and fans alike.
Shindell's songwriting ranges from lighthearted ballads and adulterous love songs, to dirges and diatribes that skillfully skewer politics, prejudice, war and religion, to the comic. He has a unique ability to morph into the soul of the many and varied personalities he casts as narrators in certain songs - songs that are veritable novellas framed in haunting acoustic melodies.
"Occasionally an artist has a night that makes even skeptics think, 'O.K., maybe he is the best.' Richard Shindell achieved this." - The New York Times
