WATCH: Colin Linden, “Honey on My Tongue”

Hometown: White Plains, New York; Toronto; Nashville since 1997 and as long as they let me. In Their Words: “Roots music and blues do speak to a lot of people right now.

It feels timeless because it’s such a raw nerve. I hope the memories of every soul who has loved and been loved are like honey on our tongues.” — Colin Linden.
