Arto Lindsay

Arto Lindsay (born May 28 1953, Richmond, Virginia) is an American guitarist, singer, record producer and experimental composer.
He has a distinctive soft voice and an often noisy, self-taught guitar style comprised almost entirely of extended techniques, described by Brian Olewnick "studiedly naïve ... sounding like the bastard child of Derek Bailey" ; his guitar work is contrasted frequently with gentler, sensuous Brazilian music themes.
