I came to hear you sing John Prine songs and ended up buying your CD because I love your original songs too! Thanks for a great afternoon.

“This crisp-sounding EP should be Lind’s ticket to the next level of fame.”

“Out on the Land’s title track [is] a modern-day dust-bowl ballad about an old man living out his declining days on the prairie, and there’s clearly something real to it.”

“Beautiful Dancing Lady is a song of desire and seduction…”

“…an attractive light tenor… knows his way around a guitar.”
