We are incredibly honored to announce that Lindby has been nominated for “Best Pop Act,” and our latest project, “Christmas with Lindby & Friends,” has been nominated for “Best EP” on The Fort Worth Weekly‘s Music Awards Ballot!

Excelsior!

Now comes the part where we ask all of you, the viewers (of this post), to ROCK THE VOTE and help us out by placing a vote for us HERE

In addition to the nomination, we also visited Eagle Audio Recording Studios this past Saturday to record a track for the The Fort Worth Weekly‘s Music Awards Compilation CD. Here is what the Weekly has to say about the comp CD:

“As part of Music Awards every year, we also corral a bunch of nominees, ply them with free food and booze, and force each of them to record a live track for us at Eagle Audio Recording on the Near Southside. We then compile the tunes into a CD that we sell for charity. Through the $5-a-pop sale of our comps over the past several years, we’ve raised nearly $5,000 for our charity sponsors: SafeHaven of Tarrant County and the Tarrant Area Food Bank. Our 2013 comp is coming along just swimmingly. Get ready for new or previously unreleased tracks from Big City Folk, The Breakfast Machine, The Diabolical Machines, Dru B Shinin’, Ice Eater, Jacob Furr & The Only Road, Lindby, The Longshots, Missing Sibling, Patriot, Siberian Traps, Sonic Buffalo, Un Chien, We’rewolves, Year of the Bear, and a few more.”

Also, we will be playing at The Fort Worth Weekly‘s Music Awards Festival on Sunday, June 23 in the West 7th corridor. The venue and time is still TBA, but we will let you know as soon as we do!

PHEW! VERY exciting things happening around here. Not to mention all of the recording, and preparing we’re doing for upcoming shows! Again, HERE is the link for voting on the Music Awards and stay tuned for more updates as they come. Thanks everyone!

Love,
Lindby

We love going to shows. Granted, most of the time we’re playing in them, but when when all of us (Lindby) go to see other people perform, whether they’re local or big-name touring acts, there is a certain “Je ne sais quoi” about them. We spend hours and hours preparing material for our own shows and when we see other people get up in front of a crowd and show what they have spent hours and hours preparing, there is a certain appreciation that we feel watching them pour their soul out into music for others to enjoy the way that we do. That in turn inspires us to go back and revamp songs, rethink set lists, and rework a some musical elements that were maybe half-baked and waiting for the right moment to be reinvented in a better way.

But inspiration strikes everyone differently.

Enter Jordan Buford. He is the writer over at The Music Enthusiast concert review blog. Jordan writes superbly in-depth reviews of concerts in the DFW area and is a seasoned veteran, having been reviewing shows since 2006 (you can read his full bio HERE)! Where our friends over at Fort Live primarily cover Forth Worth shows and only dabble in Dallas happenings, Jordan is quite the opposite. He covers mostly Dallas shows (due his proximity to the city) and handles Fort Worth goings-on from time to time. Nevertheless, he is FANTASTIC at what he does! His style of reviews is in a “play-by-play” format, which gives the reader the most in-depth look at the concert he is covering. Not only that, but his posts are informative AND interesting-qualities that some blogs only half muster.

In addition to The Music Enthusiast blog, Jordan also does a podcast over at the Whiskeyboy Radio Network that you can (and should) subscribe to HERE. We have been featured on the podcast multiple times (including his LATEST EPISODE) and HIGHLY recommend it if you are looking to discover new music from the DFW area.

Lastly, but definitely not least-ly, Jordan was gracious enough to take time out of his crazy schedule to sit down, listen to Erikson, and do one of his play-by-play overviews of it (CHECK IT OUT HERE!!). And when I say “play-by-play,” I mean he literally give his take on each song on the album. Music Enthusiast? Most definitely! Jordan doesn’t write many album reviews because he is so insanely busy covering live shows and keeping track of who is playing where and all that business, so when we saw the coverage that he did of our album, we were astounded that he gave it such a close listen! Our collective hats are off to you, Mr. Buford. It is abundantly clear that you love what you do and your passion for music shines through in your work. Just like we are inspired to create music when we hear it, Jordan is inspired to write. And mighty fine writing it is!
