In 1966, he helped launch and define Folk Rock, writing and singing the groundbreaking megahit “Elusive Butterfly.” It began an illustrious career as a songwriter that still continues today.
His songs have been recorded by more than 200 top artists including Aretha Franklin, Glen Campbell, Eric Clapton, Cher, The Four Tops, Petula Clark, Richie Havens, Marianne Faithfull, Kingston Trio, Dolly Parton, Johnny Mathis, Florence Henderson and Nancy Sinatra. His lyrics have been taught in colleges and universities throughout the U.S. and Canada, and translated into nine languages.
His “Cheryl’s Goin’ Home” has become an international cult classic. It was covered by The Rokes and sold a million records in Italy. The legendary John Otway created the rock opera CHERYL around the song.
But as great a writer as he is, nothing equals the experience of watching Bob Lind deliver his own songs.
In 2010, filmmaker Paul Surratt released the highly acclaimed concert-documentary about Lind, BOB LIND: Perspective.
In 2013, Bob joined Dan Fogelberg, John Denver and other legends, being inducted into the COLORADO MUSIC HALL OF FAME along with Judy Collins.
Bob’s last two albums FINDING YOU AGAIN (2012) and MAGELLAN WAS WRONG (2016) are being hailed as his best work yet.
