Born in a small timber town on the Oregon Coast, Bobby's passion for music began at Christmas at age 10 with his first guitar. Many bands and guitars later, he connected with his treasured 1968 Les Paul in 1970. Now, Bessie Mae (named by Little Milton's long-time road mgr, Scrap Iron, while on the Blues Cruise Oct 2010) has been his constant companion for 4 decades, bearing witness to this passion which has taken him across the USA sharing his gift.
His friends and fans know the intensity and love of music that he exudes while performing, which can be truly justified watching a live show. His songwriting has exploded recently, with 4 cd's released since 2010, 3 of which are all original songs, some of his best work yet, and one a cover of his old blues favorites with some amazing musicians backing him up. A solo acoustic cd is in the near future in 2013, unearthing all new material.
"He is a high energy, blues influenced rock 'n roller at the top of his game." His full soul is fast becoming known and welcomed as "one of the most prolific singer/songwriters in America". Recently returning from two Legendary Rhythm/Blues Cruises with a shipload of raw positive energy, new songs, friends, fans, and an undeniable sense of purpose, Bobby's long road to success has been well worth the journey. He just seems to always have a good time. A new home in Central Oregon, the opportunity to play with some of the best musicians this side of the Mississippi - the same love of music and perseverance he has always embodied promises great things to come.
After they saw Bobby performing all over the Northwest, meeting people from all over the world, Breedlove Guitars handed him a $5k acoustic beauty we named Belle. A finely crafted instrument, the tones and sounds it makes complement Bobby's voice magically. It was given to him by the company to perform to the masses, carry the music, and do a little advertising for them, which he proudly does.
Whether a solo or duo show, with funny stories, soulful ballads and rocking the blues...or with his band, which includes some of the best talent anywhere, you can catch him performing at many popular venues and clubs. Bobby Lindstrom receives rave reviews from fellow musicians and critics alike.
Available for private house parties, weddings, family reunions, celebrations of all kinds. You will not be disappointed by hiring Bobby Lindstrom!
