 Notes & Reviews
 
Big Leaf Linden has been playing their eclectic mix of original rock, pop, folk, and bluegrass music since forming in the summer of 2008. With roots in Chicago, Milwaukee, and Southeastern Wisconsin, the Lindens have performed in many cities and venues across the area. From glorious electric rock at Madison's High Noon Saloon to acoustic sets for the crowd at the Oak Park farmer's market. Along the way, the Lindens have recorded two studio albums with Milwaukee recording engineer Vinny Millevolte of Axis Recording Studios. In 2010, a six song EP titled 'Whiskey Don't Lie' was released to very positive reviews. After playing many shows to support the album, the band returned to record their latest album 'Like Home'. Press on Big Leaf Linden: (Stolen Gold) On Whiskey Don't Lie, Milwaukee's Big Leaf Linden mingles rock, country, folk and bluegrass to fairly original and often haunting effect. Vocalist Kirk Linden continues to sound like a sibling of Tom Petty and Roger McGuinn. Whiskey Don't Lie broadens the band's horizons with the faintest touch of electronics and a greater dollop of soul gospel, as Northwest Side church staples Rodney Cunningham and Melissa Carter chime in for a song. Big Leaf Linden shows how rural and urban influences can fit together in today's eclectic music scene. -Jamie Lee Rake. Shepherds Express: Milwaukee, WI I've been a fan of Big Leaf Linden ever since I heard a rough demo years ago. Right from the start, there was a boldness and fearlessness about the band. They were all about following wherever their muse led them and labels - and music journalists - be damned if they didn't get it. It's not that the groove-oriented act is way out there. It's more that they don't try hard to fit themselves into whatever hole the industry likes that day. In a nutshell, it sounds like they enjoy doing what they do and, trust me, that isn't always the case. -Paddy Finneran. Kenosha News: Kenosha, WI.
