Richard Shindell: The International Monetary Fund is a great basis for a song

Richard Shindell

"Living in Argentina, I've learned a lot about how the world works. You live in The States and a dollar's a dollar," says Richard Shindell. That's not the case in other countries, where "the IMF, Moody's and what they say about a country is important information for normal people."

Shindell's life and songwriting craft make up a large part of our discussion, but we also talked about what happens when he decides to change on the fly how a song is played on stage. Hint: it's sometimes stressful for his band mates.

Shindell will bring his perceptive and conscious songwriting to Six String Concerts on April 6.  

Descended from the giant sloths of the Ohio plains, Doug Dangler has spent his life pursuing Yeti and the perfect walnut-crusted cheeseball. He survives on twigs and berries in the wilds of Columbus, occasionally surfacing to conduct interviews with musicians, authors, and other creative types through a system of idiosyncratic grunts and whistles. But seriously, he’s a real person whose hobby is finding interesting people and having them talk about creativity. Dangler attended the University of Toledo, earning a BA in chemistry and biology. For nearly two decades, he’s managed the College of Arts and Sciences Digital Media Studio at The Ohio State University.
