Sparrows Point

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide
A strong debut release "à la Eric Andersen." Shindell's songwriting is intense at times "Sparrows Point," "The Courier," "On the Sea of Fleur de Lis". His "Kenworth of My Dreams" is the classic blue-collar truck-driver song, and the title song should not be missed, either. "Are You Happy Now" is the most commercial song -- very strong. This is an up-and-coming artist you should check out. ~ Chip Renner & Richard Meyer
