Before Graham Lindsey could even drive he was already playing in punk rock bands around his hometown of Madison, Wisconsin, most notably "the world's youngest punk band" Old Skull. A little older and arguably wiser he holed up between a rural Nebraska farmhouse and a cabin in the woods of Wisconsin and woodshedded out the material for what would be his first solo album Famous Anonymous Wilderness, a debut that suddenly earned him widespread critical acclaim making it onto dozens of top ten lists including two Rolling Stone Critic's Choice lists as well as being featured on a special edition of NPR's All Songs Considered. Released on Catamount Records in 2003, it was heralded by alternative-country bible of the day No Depression as "the most audacious roots songwriter's debut since Gillian Welch's Revival," received Honorable Mention for Best Debut/Artist and was chosen as one of the Top Forty Albums of the year by Harp Magazine.

Lindsey's songs soon began showing up in many promising spots, among them Uncut Magazine's cover-mount CD Tracks Inspired by Bob Dylan -Volume 2 alongside Richie Havens, John Prine, Steve Goodman, Billy Bragg and others; the opening credit sequence of the feature film Dunsmore; and Bloodshot Records' 10-year anniversary compilation For A Decade of Sin: 11 Years of Bloodshot Records in which his inclusion was called "one of the most haunting down-home performances" on the 2-disc set.

Sophomore effort Hell Under The Skullbones immediately earned the Number One spot on the Euro Americana Chart overseas and celebrated a string of similar successes in the U.S. since its worldwide release on Spacebar Recordings and Sonic Rendezvous in 2006. The ten song album is what Uncut Magazine called "fiery folk-blues-twang, augmented by notable cameos from Van Dyke Parks, pedal steel whiz Greg Leisz and ex-Captain Beefheart guitarist Moris Tepper." Also featured are upright bassist Larry Taylor (Tom Waits) and Nick Vincent (Frank Black and the Catholics) among others.

Lindsey's unlikely journey most recently led him to the mountains of Montana where he now lives with his wife and dogs. It was here over several years that he spaded out the material for his third full-length We Are All Alone In This Together as well as it's shorter counterpart The Mine EP both recorded by producer Steve Deutsch (Van Dyke Parks, Linda Thompson) and released on Spacebar Recordings in January of 2009.
Hailed by Ctrl.Alt.Counrty as "one of the first truly great albums of 2009," as well as ushering in a slew of other rave reviews, the album weaves Lindsey's signature dark backcountry imagery and poignant lyricism, or what the Chicago Sun Times has called his "road map of the human condition," together with roots based acoustic-primitive song crafting to unfold the latest chapter of his seldom sunny, often fiery, and always unapologetic bear-trap glimpse on the world.
