Emerging from the heart of Long Island, singer/songwriter Rick Brindell is no stranger to the music industry. His musical genre is a combination of blues, country, rock, and folk. Rick’s innovative lyrical motif was created from themes of everyday life and can best be described as original, honest, meaningful, and real.  Rick describes himself this way: “I am an honest, down-to-earth guy. As a hard-working insurance professional for nearly 30 years, I finally am allowing myself to follow my dream of making music and preparing for the second half of my life to be a whole lot of fun. I am hoping for personal satisfaction. As far back as I can remember, I’ve always loved music. I remember watching the Beatles on the Ed Sullivan Show, and I was hooked forever.”

Rick prides himself on the fact that he is a fingerstyle guitarist, which means he plays guitar by plucking the strings directly with the fingertips or picks attached to fingers. Rick states: “I learned to play fingerstyle guitar after years of being a big Hot Tuna fan; I have even taken guitar lessons from the captain himself, Jorma Kaukonen.”

From a satirical complaint about technology, to a spoof on a common colloquialism, to an uplifting theme after a devastating storm, he has creatively excelled in several different genres and styles of music and has written songs that are fun, satirical, sophisticated, current, and touching.

Having played bass for decades with various local bands on Long Island, Rick Brindell has an abundant amount of exhilarating music in its purest form. His music is the music of the everyday man, which comes from the heart.
