It is always a treat when Eric Lindell pulls through the Azalea City. This singer-songwriter made his way to The Big Easy at the turn of the millennium. Over the years, he has crafted a sound that some might consider blues rock or blue-eyed soul, but the influence of the Crescent City is heard in every note. He has taken his sound around the globe with eager ears begging for more with each performance. Lindell will be making his way to Mobile after a steady run on the East Coast.
Throughout the journey, he will be promoting his latest release “Sunday Morning,” which is the creation of Lindell and his backing band The Sunliners. The album’s line-up also boasts Texas blues guru Anson Funderburgh on guitar and contains seven of Lindell’s “favorite cuts.” This singer-songwriter infuses his own brand of soul into songs such as “Here in Frisco” (George Jones) and breathes new life into a Billy Preston classic, which is the album’s title track. His version of the Ernest Tubb classic “Thanks A Lot” could be considered the most interesting track on “Sunday Morning.” All the while, Funderburgh accents each track with his slow hand blues style.
