An expatriate New Yorker now living in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Richard Shindell is a meticulous craftsman of song.

Innovative, original and occasionally spiritual, Shindell's songs weave tales that interchangeably champion the downtrodden, exalt the disaffected or express empathy to those lost to society's fringes.

Shindell's background is as varied as the characters he sings about. While in college, he formed a band with friend John Gorka. He lived for a while in a Zen Buddhist monastery. He has played for coins in the underground Metro stations of Paris. And he studied philosophy and religion at Union Theological Seminary.

In addition to building a loyal fan base, Shindell has earned overwhelming critical success. He has been called "a master of subtle narrative" by The Wall Street Journal, "a master builder of songs" by The Boston Globe, and has been described as having "the voice of a master" by The Los Angeles Daily News. Richard Shindell: Master, indeed.

"Shindell has uncanny sense of the theater of a song, building his ballads sparely and subtly, set to sweeping graceful melodies." -- The Boston Globe

Nels Andrews makes his home in Brooklyn, New York, but he grew up all over the United States.

He sampled college life before being overcome by a growing wanderlust and split รข" hitchhiking to Alaska for a season in the fisheries, to South Dakota to plant trees in the Black Hills, before landing in Taos, New Mexico.

In his travels, Andrews befriended all sorts of characters, especially the small town drunks and prophets, who colored his worldview. He took notes and hummed melodies, sat shyly with his guitar at campfires.

It was during this time, sitting around the campfires late nights on the mesa, that he drew on some courage to start playing the songs that had been growing slowly under the surface of his day-to-day. One such campfire led him to Kerrville Folk Festival, where he came out of nowhere with a homemade tape to win the New Folk songwriting contest. He has since earned awards from Telluride, Mountain Stage New Song and Falcon Ridge.

"He has the rare ability to conjure entire vistas and characters in no more that a couple of lines." -- Americana UK
