Eric Lindell first hit the national music scene with his 2006 Alligator Records debut Change In The Weather, critics and fans alike celebrated the arrival of a roots rocker with dozens of unforgettable original songs. With his musical roots planted in Northern California, Lindell's music blossomed in New Orleans. His combination of sweet, blue-eyed soul with foot-stomping R&B, swamp pop, funk and blues won him critical and popular acclaim across the country, with reviews and features in Relix, OffBeat, The Chicago Sun-Times, Harp, Guitar Player, Down Beat, The New Yorker, The New York Press and many other national and regional publications. Singer and Musician magazine put Eric on the cover and many newspaper entertainment sections did the same. The New Orleans Times-Picayune said, "Eric Lindell has arrived. He channels Van Morrison with his irresistible soul...not a moment is wasted." The Chicago Sun-Times followed, saying "Soulful original songs fuse R&B, swamp pop and funk into a potent, party-time mix." 

Eric Lindell's latest 2013 release, "Sunday Morning" is making waves on radio stations all over the US and features the legend blues guitarist Anson Funderburgh.

Joining Eric Lindell on his "Bringing Heat to the East Coast Tour" is Cris Jacobs. After 10 years fronting the Baltimore band The Bridge, Cris Jacobs is continuing to show his depth and range as a gifted songwriter and performer. With his deeply expressive vocals, passionate and gritty guitar playing, and poignant songwriting, Cris creates an instantly engaging sound that ranges from intensely rockin' to sublimely sweet to hauntingly psychedelic. Cris' prolific songbook provides the fertile ground for his improvisational fearlessness, creating a truly dynamic live experience.
