Interviews and Reviews

Beautiful guitar work is the hallmark of David Lindsay’s Nightbound. The moods he creates, the intimacies he shares, and the multitude of “voices” he pulls from his guitar are striking and satisfying…. A superlative, introspective and pleasing album for a soul-searching afternoon….Read more..

Mark Maxwell Abushady, NYC, Creation Magazine
…another masterpiece was created for the lovers of new age instrumental music….With simplicity there comes beauty, spirituality and peace. David Lindsay released Nighbound late last year and with that music, his acoustic guitar to be more specific, he created 13 tracks of pure instrumental tranquility….exquisite combination of acoustic, instrumental, new age and classical. All of these genres find a way of enhancing the other and the sounds you will hear are like watching butter melt on a hot dish of your favorite food. The ambiance and texture delights the senses and the very spirit you hold within. One track leads to the next inviting you on your own personal journey, as you ride the wave of sounds you will be instantly relaxed and motivated to hear it all….Read more..

Keith “MuzikMan” Hannaleck- New Age Music Reviews Founder, New Age Music Reviews
…All thirteen pieces are very quiet and soothing, providing a little under an hour of respite from the hectic pace of life – all is calm and peaceful there. As is true of all of Ackerman’s and Eaton’s productions, the sound quality of this album is impeccable – warm, clear, clean, and very smooth. Most of the music on the album was created spontaneously during the recording process. It’s a very beautiful project ….Read more..

…In my interview with David, he shared some reflections and back-story about the album: “Most of the pieces are new, with a couple of older ones taken out of moth balls to fit in with the project overall. I really didn’t expect to be writing again after fourteen years. My conception originally was to do an album with Will of my best older stuff. I was inspired by the experience of meeting Will, talking about music and life, working at Imaginary Road Studios, and a new guitar that seems to be blessed by the Muse!” He goes on to say: “When I think back to how I felt just beforeDavid Lindsay starting the recording (nervous, unsure), and to how I felt when Tom Eaton had mastered it (elated), I felt that I had overcome a huge emotional divide between the distant past and the future. I am really excited to be back into music, and to have such fortuity in working with probably one of the best producers on the planet.” ….Read more..

BIOGRAPHY

DAVID LINDSAY l Guitarist and Composer

David returns actively to the music scene with a new instrumental album: NIGHTBOUND, produced by Will Ackerman at his Imaginary Road Studios, Vermont in conjunction with co-producer and engineer Tom Eaton. Will is the founder of Windham Hill Records, a producer of 27 gold and platinum records in the U.S., and overseas, and a Grammy winner. A year ago, after David contacted the world famous musician and producer, and submitted his music, Will wrote back, saying, “… some of the best writing and playing I’ve heard in years.”

Spanning 1985 to the year 2000, David recorded and performed in concert, live radio, and television in Canada. For the past fifteen years, David practiced law, and studied lute, culminating in master classes with Robert Barto and the late Pat O’Brien, whose generosity of spirit inspired David to begin a journey back to the guitar.

NIGHTBOUND features mostly new works that were written spontaneously during the recording process. The album also features inspired contributions from Eugene Friesen, six time Grammy winning cellist with the Paul Winter Consort; Tony Levin, bassist with John Lennon, Paul Simon and Peter Gabriel; Charlie Bisharat, violinist with Alanis Morissette, Elton John and Beck; Jeff Haynes, percussionist with Pat Metheny; Michael Manring on Zon Bass, and Will Ackerman, guitar. Other musical contributors include Tom Eaton, multi-instrumentalist, Jill Haley, English horn, Paul Kochanski, NS Bass, and vocals by Noah Wilding.

NIGHTBOUND will be released in November of this year. David’s music is a synthesis of his background in classical guitar and lute studies, and in celebration and honor of the human spirit.

David lives in Toronto, Canada with his wife Caroline, and two daughters, Ila and Margot. His return to the concert stage and music scene comes never too late for a man who began his music career as a boy, sneaking into his sister’s bedroom, playing her Beatles albums, and pretending to be John Lennon, complete with the bedroom mirror and a tennis racket!
