We have been releasing one tune a week throughout the month of October, but here they all are now, so you can enjoy them all in one place! Each tune features one or more of our musician pals from around DFW, who are AMAZING people and incredibly talented musicians. We cannot thank everyone who helped us out with this enough, and are truly thankful to have the opportunity to work with such gifted people-all of whom are right in our own backyard (the back yard of North Texas, that is)! And before we forget, there are available for a FREE DOWNLOAD as well. FREE DOWNLOAD. FREE DOWNLOAD. So if you want to take them with you on the go, you can do it to it!

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!
