Flood for the Famine Short Info

In Flood for the Famine, songwriter/producer Alex Lindner brings together his unique blend of folk, blues and soul while telling tall tales of city life. Stories of love rub shoulders with the more absurd aspects of city life…small-timers bang on strip club doors demanding their money back, while elsewhere despairing drunks are taken into the loving arms of bouncers.

“When renting a studio pretty much above a strip club, it’s kind of hard to ignore all that stuff - you see something different every day. Sometimes I just run away with it…”

Playing live as a 5-piece made up of guitars, synths, cello and drums, moments of close-to-the-bone intimacy are swept aside by a corrupted strain of blues and jazz. Whispering one minute and howling the next, tender balladry rubs shoulders with frenzied brass bands - you find yourself in a world that leaves no part of you untouched.

“A rare talent and a project that holds an intriguing mystique and quality that shouldn't be missed” – It’s All Indie, Cole Samson

“Hugely reminiscent of Nick Cave, Leonard Cohen and even here and there Tom Waits” – Gobsmag, Bas Bosboom

“Incredible! So emotive and passionate… he really captivates audiences with his compelling lyrics” – The Huffington Post, Mohadesa Najumi

“Stunning” – Amazing Radio, Charlie Ashcroft

“A haunting and everlasting track” - Wolf In A Suit
