Linda Maichʼs recording, Wild Life, pays homage to a love of languages, well-crafted songs from composers as diverse as Abbey Lincoln and Bob Dylan, and the magic of music. All this is wrapped into jazzy and spacious arrangements of songs performed in French, English, and Portuguese. The CD features Linda on vocals accompanied by French pianist, Frédéric Desmoulins, guitarist, Paul Musso, bassist, Robin Ruscio, and drummer, Antwon Owens.

About the Artist

Born in Denver, Colorado in 1955, a third generation Coloradan, Linda began playing guitar and writing songs at the age of nineteen while attending the University of Northern Colorado where she received a degree in interpersonal communication and a journalism minor. Beginning in 1977, Linda produced a ten-week series, Women in Music, for the radio station, KFML, in Denver. This program led her to the stories and music of many artists including Joni Mitchell and Billie Holiday and also inspired Linda to pursue her own musical interests.

Linda has performed for many years in Denver, and during the height of the pandemic, she gave three virtual concerts through the series, 100 Nights of Jazz. She has been featured on radio stations JAZZ89 KUVO in Denver and KGNU Radio in Boulder. In April of 2018, Linda performed three of her original compositions in Palaiseau, France with the world music group, Kaïsa.

Linda’s also studies ceramics at the Art Students League of Denver. She volunteers at an equine center and loves those horses! A world traveler, Linda will be making her first trip to Japan in the fall of 2023. She enjoys gardening and is in the process of creating a pollinator garden to surround herself with birds, bees and butterflies.
