East Vancouver’s John Michael Lind whirls his personal brand of folk-rock, alternative-country, and downright rootsy lyrical honesty into Pete Durning’s legendary Byng Roadhouse in Downtown Cranbrook this coming Tuesday March 15th (showtime 9 pm) as part of his comprehensive Western Canadian tour.
The son of a Sudbury hard rock miner, Lind cut his musical teeth in the arts-vibrant environs of Roberts Creek BC before settling into the still-beating heart of No Fun City’s acoustic-folk intelligentsia, where the seminal influences of Stephen Fearing, Valdy, Don McLean, and Doc Watson all combined to create his own sound.
Lind’s debut recording “Out on the Land” is a strong 6-song EP which the Georgia Straight calls “…Lind’s ticket to the next level of fame.”
And given Lind’s sincere friendliness, earnest honesty, and compelling songwriting, fame indeed awaits. So why not see for yourselves?
