David Lindsay returns actively to the music scene with a new instrumental album: NIGHTBOUND, produced by Will Ackerman at his Imaginary Road Studios, Vermont in conjunction with co-producer and engineer Tom Eaton. Will is the founder of Windham Hill Records, a producer of 27 gold and platinum records in the U.S., and overseas, and a Grammy winner. A year ago, after David contacted the world famous musician and producer, and submitted his music, Will wrote back, saying, “… some of the best writing and playing I’ve heard in years.”

Spanning 1985 to the year 2000, David recorded and performed in concert, live radio, and television in Canada. For the past fifteen years, David practiced law, and studied lute, culminating in master classes with Robert Barto and the late Pat O’Brien, whose generosity of spirit inspired David to begin a journey back to the guitar.

NIGHTBOUND features mostly new works that were written spontaneously during the recording process. The album also features inspired contributions from Eugene Friesen, six time Grammy winning cellist with the Paul Winter Consort; Tony Levin, bassist with John Lennon, Paul Simon and Peter Gabriel; Charlie Bisharat, violinist with Alanis Morissette, Elton John and Beck; Jeff Haynes, percussionist with Pat Metheny; Michael Manring on Zon Bass, and Will Ackerman, guitar. Other musical contributors include Tom Eaton, multi-instrumentalist, Jill Haley, English horn, Paul Kochanski, NS Bass, and vocals by Noah Wilding.

NIGHTBOUND  was released in November, 2015. David’s music is a synthesis of his background in classical guitar and lute studies, and in celebration and honor of the human spirit.

David lives in Toronto, Canada with his wife Caroline, and two daughters, Ila and Margot. His return to the concert stage and music scene comes never too late for a man who began his music career as a boy, sneaking into his sister’s bedroom, playing her Beatles albums, and pretending to be John Lennon, complete with the bedroom mirror and a tennis racket!
