Quotes

"Frank Lindamood is the real deal..." ---- Tom T. Hall


"He’s a bare-knuckled guitar player, a master of early 20th century banjo style, and a lucid but gritty bender of notes on his metal bodied resonator."---The Sopchoppy Examiner

"Lindamood knows the power of this raw material, so he strips things down to the basics and stays out of the way of the songs. His delivery is immediate, direct and powerful. Helluva an album."---Mark Hinson, The Tallahassee Democrat
 

“Frank Lindamood is the 62 year old poster child for crafting authentic and traditional sound into new and original song. A resident of the flat woods of Sopchoppy, Florida, Lindamood is a life-long student of the likes of Leadbelly, Blind Lemon and Jimmy Rogers. His songs ring with voices and voicings from the past..."
---The Sopchoppy Examiner

Short Press Release

Frank Lindamood is a storyteller whose bag of tricks includes a banjo and a steel guitar.  His stories are songs delivered with a rich and mesmerizing voice, and are as deep and dark as the Sopchoppy woods of North Florida where he makes his home. His hometown newspaper, The Sopchoppy Examiner, describes him, “…a bare-knuckled guitar player, a master of early 20th century banjo style, and a lucid but gritty bender of notes on his metal bodied resonator.”  Lindamood’s songs include Appalachian and Celtic ballads, jigs, and reels,  and originals which are so authentic they are often mistaken for traditional tunes. “I tend to write songs from the most basic human themes: Our struggles with fate, our conversations with God, our search for love, and our life-long battle for meaning beneath the shadow of inevitable loss and death,” he says. With a chuckle he adds, “And if that doesn't put a smile on your face and a bounce in your step, I also have songs about love affairs ending badly."  Lindamood is a regular performer at area music venues and festivals including The Florida Folk Festival, 30A Songwriters Festival, the Will McLean and Gamble Rogers festivals, and many more. 

Full Press Release

Frank Lindamood is a storyteller whose bag of tricks includes a banjo and a steel guitar.  His stories are songs delivered with a rich and mesmerizing voice, and are as deep and dark as the Sopchoppy woods of North Florida where he makes his home. His hometown newspaper, The Sopchoppy Examiner, describes him, “He’s a bare-knuckled guitar player, a master of early 20th century banjo style, and a lucid but gritty bender of notes on his metal bodied resonator.” 

Listen to a few of Lindamood’s tunes, and it is obvious that he is more than a master songwriter and instrumentalist, but also an engaging reconteur of history, his subjects ranging from Beethoven, to the Bible, to the Civil War.  Songs with titles  like ‘The General’s Dream,’(Robert E. Lee) ‘ Heart of Stone,’ (John Henry),  ‘Immortal Beloved’ (Beethoven), and Gethsemane, reveal his fascination with  the players on history’s stages, and the emotions that drove them to action. 

“I tend to write songs from the most basic human themes: Our struggles with fate, our conversations with God, our search for love, and our life-long battle for meaning beneath the shadow of inevitable loss and death,” he says. With a chuckle he adds, “And if that doesn't put a smile on your face and a bounce in your step, I also have songs about love affairs ending badly.” 

For over half a century, Lindamood has been infatuated with what he calls “The Old Music,” and this is why, he explains, he has “forsaken modern industrial Pop Culture for the songs of the plantations, bawdy houses and clapboard country churches…. befriending through the songs sharecroppers, mountaineers, lonesome cowboys and good women gone bad.” 

A regular performer at area festivals, Lindamood has played  30A Songwriter’s Festival, The Florida Folk Festival, and many more Florida music events. In 2013, he toured the West Coast with friend and writer/musician Michael Koppy

Lindamood has released three CDs on the Gatorbone Records label. The latest is  Songs from the OTHER Great American Songbook (2015) a collaboration with Koppy.  It is a collection of 17 old-time songs from a repertoire that Lindamood has been building for half a century, selected for their universal and timeless messages.  You can read more about him at his website, www.franklindamood.com
