Gig Information

Derek Lind
Derek Lind’s new release, SOLO features lyrically rich storytelling, set to live acoustic arrangements that together help recreate emotional touch-points. Listeners will find moments of empathy and commonality as they traverse the twin discs that make up SOLO.

Lind has performed at international festivals including Greenbelt Festival in England, Australia's Blackstump Festival, and the Cornerstone Festival in the USA. He has spent time visiting relief and development projects in Pakistan, Bangladesh, India the Philippines and Thailand for Tear Fund. He has a heart for issues of justice, compassion and equity, particularly for the oppressed minorities of the world.

Lind has played at major arts and music festivals in NZ and supported international acts such as Sam Philips, Michelle Shocked, and the Hot House Flowers.

Derek has recorded seven albums to extensive critical approval and has been awarded two NZ music awards and an APRA Silver Scroll nomination.

His music is in the tradition of the singer-songwriter, drawing its influences from blues, country and rock music. Influences include Dylan, Neil Young, T-Bone Burnette, John Prine, Springsteen, Elvis Costello, Richard Thompson, Peter Case, John Hiatt & Van Morrison.

Derek has on occasions gathered a collective of kindred spirits, singers and musicians around him to perform gospel-blues songs. The collective has a revolving door and over 20 players have participated in various events. Checkout their band site here; The Redemption Highway Collective

He is equally at home as a solo performer playing acoustic guitar, or leading a band. His desire is that his music confronts people as to their response to social issues, their personal relationships and their spirituality.
Derek Lind's band features an impressive line up of local musicians and close friends. Derek (Guitar & Vocals) was accompanied by APRA Silver Scroll winner Guy Wishart (guitar and banjo), Alan Brown (Hammond A100), Andrew Horst (Bass), Kevin Adair (Drums) and Glenn Ross Campbell (Weissenborn Lap-slide).

“Don’t Take Me For Granted”.

He has toured NZ extensively on several occasions with long time friend Derek Lind (who acted as “Recording Reviewer” on “West By North”), as well as supporting a variety of local and international acts over the years.
