Dave Stewart’s new project partners the British singer, songwriter and producer with a one-of-a-kind young singer from Louisiana, Thomas Lindsey.
Several songs from their performance at the Roxy in Los Angeles will be featured on their debut full-length album (release date TBA).
Enjoy these two songs from the December performance. Three more videos will be posted next week.
“Leave This Town”
Of the evening’s performance, Paul Zollo of American Songwriter said:
“First of all–the range–the man [Thomas Lindsey] sings in that angelic high range where Aaron Neville resides, not falsetto but full belting voice, yet with a bluesy edge and vigor all his own. When he started wailing on the first song he sang, ‘Leave This Town,’ the crowd was stunned. It was a new sound, rich in Southern resonance and deep blues, but all about now…they soared through several new songs that they wrote and recorded as the newly-dubbed duo of Stewart & Lindsey, and as Dave, who Dylan has called a ‘fearless’ guitarist, played stinging guitar leads as Thomas whirled and danced onstage, summoning the old Delta ghosts of blues and soul. Even when doing sad songs (‘maybe the saddest song ever,’ Dave announced) such as ‘Friend Zone,’ it was a joyous performance, the arrival of a brand new star on the scene, fully formed.”
