Bio

Coleman Lindberg got his start in music at a young age playing original solo piano compositions and singing in the choir at the Methodist church his family attended. After graduating at the top of his class from Minnesota’s Perpich Center for Arts Education, Lindberg went to Macalester College where he began writing on guitar. He cut his first demo on reel-to-reel tape in the school’s radio station and began playing coffee shops and cafes. After leaving school to pursue music full-time, Lindberg traveled coast-to-coast and throughout Europe and the Middle East, surviving as a busker. Inspired by artists like Ani Difranco and Tracy Chapman, he released his first official full-length record Boys in 2000. With his songs about love, loneliness, loss, addiction and politics, Lindberg quickly became an integral part of the underground acoustic punk and queer music movements happening in the Twin Cities. In 2001 he formed the band Winter Machine with Radford Bishop, another like-minded folk-punker. The duo released the full-length album A Few Things I Believe in 2002, gaining positive reviews and buzz for their dynamic live performances, honest lyrics and soaring harmonies. The band broke up in 2003, leaving Lindberg to return to his solo roots. He released the folk/pop EP Making My Name in early 2006, garnering more favorable press. In 2007 he decided to leave the music scene temporarily in order to focus on writing music and creating visual art. Four years later he returned to the performing arts world when he enrolled at McNally Smith College of Music to study songwriting and business. Lindberg returned to the stage in fall of 2012 and began gigging regularly while working on a new full-length record entitled Skylines, a song cycle about love and life in the Twin Cities with a release date of October 6, 2013. He’s currently promoting the album, writing new songs and pursuing a degree at McNally Smith.
