David's legendary stringed-instrument virtuosity has been showcased on many of Browne's albums, beginning with 1973's For Everyman, and on classics such as Late For The Sky and The Pretender (the latter two both on Rolling Stone's list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time). Browne also produced Lindley's 1983 LP, the acclaimed El Rayo-X. Throughout this long and distinguished career, Lindley has been one of the world's most in demand session musicians, lending his skills to the recorded works of Bob Dylan, Rod Stewart, Linda Ronstadt, Crosby, Stills and Nash, Warren Zevon, Ben Harper and many others.
In 1979, Lindley began working with long-time friend Ry Cooder on Bop Till You Drop and The Long Riders soundtrack, a musical collaboration that lasts to this day, spawning many recording projects and several world tours as an acoustic duo. The David Lindley electro-acoustic performance effortlessly combines American folk, blues, and bluegrass traditions with elements from African, Arabic, Asian, Celtic, Malagasy, and Turkish musical sources. Lindley incorporates an incredible array of stringed instruments including but not limited to Kona and Weissenborn Hawaiian lap steel guitar, Turkish saz and chumbus, Middle Eastern oud, and Irish bouzouki. Featured performer with Jackson Browne's band of almost 20 years on 2010 Summer tour of Europe and the U.S.
