HONOLULU - Jan. 7, 2016 - PRLog -- As the chorus kicks in on “Drive,” the lead single from Chris Lind’s forthcoming new EP due out in early 2016, the tempo shifts into high percussive gear and the multi-talented singer/songwriter shares powerful lyrics that perfectly reflect the forward momentum of his emergence as a force in indie pop/rock: “The only way we’ll ever get there is the shaking of our hearts.” A few years after catching fire with his singles “What Is Not Yours” and “A Story of US” – which were featured in two episodes of The CW show “Smallville” – and his debut EP Home, the soulful-voiced Lind takes a long look at the colorful history of where he’s been.

Drive” is about the desire to move West with someone he loves. The track features his incredible band, including guitarist/bassist Aaron Nevezie (who co-produced), drummer Dave Burnett (also a co-producer) and bassist Jeff Hill.

Lind’s expansive musical journey presents some fascinating geographic storylines. A native of South Jersey (near Philly) who became a driving force on the NYC music scene, Lind has performed regularly in California and recently relocated to his dad’s native Hawaii. In between studies at Skidmore College, he lived, worked and gigged often in Honolulu. Expanding his repertoire, he studied Slack Key guitar with renowned artist Ozzie Kotani. After graduating with a Bachelor’s in Music, he moved to NYC and within a year began gigging at hotspots like Rockwood Music Hall (ultimately performing on all three stages), The Living Room and Pete’s Candy Store (where he secured various residencies).

Growing a loyal fan base via his headline performances, Lind also opened for John Cruz at Le Poisson Rouge and the legendary Michael McDonald at The Ridgefield Playhouse in Connecticut. Expanding his sphere of influence, he later performed at The Tin Angel in Philadelphia, The Rite Spot in San Francisco, the Hotel Café in Los Angeles, The Stone Pony in Asbury Park, NJ and Downbeat Lounge and Anna O’Brien’s in Honolulu. Towards the end of his time living in New York, he recorded and performed (at CMJ 2014) with a newly reformed version of Americana powerpop band End of Love whose members included Wilco’s Nels Cline and Big Star’s Jody Stephens. Lind’s “day jobs” during this time included teaching guitar at St. Francis College in Brooklyn and managing a prominent rehearsal studio in Greenwich Village.

“Living, working and playing in NYC/Brooklyn these past ten years, I’ve been able to see so many amazing artists who have inspired the development of my own style, vibe and point of view as a songwriter and performer,” says Lind. “I’ve been exposed to many amazing places and venues, all rich with unique vibes. The guys in my band are honestly some of my greatest influences.”
