Richard Shindell has been hailed as an imaginative storyteller whose knack for simple melodies and stark ambiance has bestowed him with a healthy worldwide fan base. Cutting out a career for himself as a literary minded tunesmith, the former seminarian has released five albums since he arrived on the folk scene in 1992 with Sparrow's Point on Shanachie. Shindell reaches into his arsenal of songs and pulls out some of the best for his first live album, Courier, released on the Signature Sounds label

Album Sparrows Point. I am a courier Crawling in the dirt Toward the front line As the crow flies A note stashed in my shirt From the Prince of Wales Far above the field With his marshalls And their chain-mail Their banners taut and high. I did not ask him what the note said He did not offer to explain It's not my job to ask the questions I'm just the courier.
