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 is currently on tour in support of Tomorrow You’re Going, a collection of cover songs under the band name The Pine Hill Project, with Lucy Kaplansky and produced by Larry Campbell. Shindell will release a solo collection of original songs in 2016. Meanwhile, he’s launched a YouTube channel where, from an apartment in Buenos Aires, he is recording his entire repertoire of compositions, revisiting his earliest works with a bold intimacy. 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 point-­of-­view of a cow stuck in a barbed wire fence. 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.
