Richard Shindell is a New York- and Buenos Aires-based songwriter whose songs paint vivid worlds that expand our sense of what a song can be. From a stint at a Zen Buddhist Community in Upstate New York, to busking in the Paris Metro, to studying at Union Theological Seminary, to New York City’s songwriter scene, Shindell’s nomadic life and work have long explored themes of immanence and transcendence, human love and divine love, the particular and the general. In 1998, Shindell joined forces with his friends and ArtsCenter favorites Dar Williams and Lucy Kaplansky to record CryCryCry, a collection of covers. The group toured in support of this highly acclaimed album, leaving audiences spellbound by their gorgeous three-part harmonies. Although known primarily as songwriter, Shindell takes a more holistic view of his career. Producer, writer, singer, guitarist, interpreter: it all adds up to a life in music.
