Lindsey Eck is a veteran of bands from Boston to Austin. Based in rural Texas, he dabbles in many musical styles, but rock is his forte (and sometimes his fortissimo). He has reviewed styles from classical (NewMusicBox) to hip-hop (Bad Subjects) and his essay 'Defining Country Music' appears in a textbook on pop culture used in college English classes. He is at work on a full-length album, By Night By Day By Night. The two songs on Patriot offer a humorous but poignant take on today's issues.
