Welcome to the website of Lindsey Horner, I hope you enjoy your visit. To hear musical samples from many of my recordings, please stop by the store.
Toward the end of June, 2015, I took the plunge and went into the friendly confines of Kaleidoscope Sound and put down the makings of a solo bass recording. Some of my great bass heroes have tested their mettle by making an extended solo statement, Miroslav Vitous, Gary Peacock, Ron Carter, Dave Holland (who has made two - AND a solo cello record). It seemed that I'd put it off long enough so I went into the studio with the able support of my right hand man, Jeff Berman, on percussion. Thus making it not strictly speaking "solo" but I thought it would be more fun to have Jeff accompany me in his inimitable style. I've always been something of a groove player forming my tightest bonds with drummers and Jeff has been a part of so many of my projects. I went back in towards the end of January to do a few more things by myself and I can safely say that it's done - at least for now. It's almost completely mixed by the incomparable Randy Crafton and I hope to have it finished very soon.
Sleeping Bee is the brainchild/lovechild of my longtime musical brother, Andy Goessling, and myself. The Band can best be described as "Transcendent Acoustic ", and it seems to be growing each time we play together. Our first recording, Heyday Maker, has been out for awhile and to be honest, we are quite pleased with it. We did most of the work at Randy Crafton's excellent Kaleidoscope Sound of Union City, New Jersey. The band has grown with the addition of singer and guitarist Timothy Hill to the band. I have known Timothy for many years and have longed to make more music with him. He specializes in harmonic singing whereby two or more notes can be sung at once - as well as the more conventional kind of singing. Heyday Maker is available through this site - go to the store to view, listen and purchase - and also at CD Baby: http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/sleepingbeelindseyhorner
Recently, we've played for discerning listeners in New Jersey and Virginia and had a great performance at the Common Ground in Hastings-on-Hudson, New York at the end of May with the brilliant Pete McCann standing in for Andy on guitar. We've started making a new recording and will keep you informed about the progress of that.
As you can see above, there is a special section on this website dedicated to all things Sleeping Bee.
Here's a look at the cover art of Heyday Maker:
I'm in my fifth year as a member of The Eileen Ivers Band. We had some great March shows with both the Dallas, Texas and Toledo, Ohio Symphony Orchestras as well as in San Rafael, CA, Purchase NY and more. Our first summer show was on June 4th at the Folk Festival in Pagosa Springs, CO, and we were back in Vail, Colorado on July 1st in a special performance with the Dallas Symphony. We're in the thick of summer shows with are taking us out to Cleveland, OH, Minnesota, down to Virginia and North Carolina and various points around the Northeast. Details are on the calendar page. I'm thrilled to be a part of this great band which includes guitarist and fiddle player Matt Mancuso, three time All-Ireland champion button accordion player, Buddy Connolly, and percussionist and singer, Dave Barckow. I've yet to do a gig with Eileen and the lads where the audience was not on their feet raving at the end. For more information on the band and touring schedule, go to http://www.eileenivers.com/
