“Erik Lindgren scores consummate musicianship from the spatially abstract to a defining American vernacular. Erik Lindgren IS American music” — Van Dyke Parks
“Erik Lindgren is a model of musical schizophrenia—the type who’ll play Stravinsky and Louie Louie, back-to-back, with one foot in the conservatory and the other in the garage.” — Brett Milano, The Boston Globe
