ABOUT BOB LIND A major influence on the 1960s folk-rock movement, Lind wrote and sang the classic hit “Elusive Butterfly.” Since then, his songs have been recorded by over 200 artists including Cher, Aretha Franklin, Eric Clapton, Richie Havens, Dolly Parton, Johnny Mathis, Glen Campbell, Carmen McRae, Petula Clark, The Four Tops and Nancy Sinatra. But nothing equals the experience of watching this dynamic performer deliver his own songs. Reviews: Obvious on-stage know-how never lets him down. – Variety. He has his own vocal style with traces of no one, something that can be said of few artists. . . modest, joyful and humorous between songs . . . overwhelming audience approval. – L.A. Times. Enough charisma to carry him to the moon and back. – The Record Ledger. Internationally acclaimed filmmakers Paul Surratt and Ian Marshall are currently making a documentary about Lind’s life and work, to be released in late 2007. The producers’ aim is to show that the creativity and passion in his music –old and new -- continue to impact audiences today. Bob just returned from a wildly successful tour of England promoting the brand-new ACE Records CD: BOB LIND, ELUSIVE BUTTERFLY (The Complete Jack Nitzsche Sessions) which features his classic early work. Come see why this engaging poet/guitarist/philosopher/ singer/wise-ass has endured in the sometimes-cruel and always-fickle music business for more than 40 years. But come prepared to feel emotions you may not have let yourself feel in a while – feelings that may scare you a little. His songs hit the heart like a wrecking ball!
