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. Purchase Music Upcoming Appearances The main theme of Magic of the Heart, recorded in 1999, is the cycle of life beginning with a lullaby, Rock-a-Bye Baby and ending with an a cappella version of Ave Maria sung in Latin. Her accompaniment includes cello (Wayne Templeman), accordion (the late Robert Davine), violin (Chinese musician, Hong An), vibraphone (Chris Allen) and guitar (Paul Musso). Purchase Music Upcoming Appearances From the Mouth of a Snapdragon, released in 1992, pays homage to nature: the four seasons, wildflowers, the Seine River and more. Linda also experimented with unusual sounds from panpipes and Indonesian gamelan instruments to accordion and ocarina. The mostly original compositions are inspired in part by Linda’s three years in Paris beginning in 1986. She also includes minimalist bass, drums, voice renditions of French composer, Claude Nougaro’s La Pluie Fait des Claquettes as well as the classic Gershwin song Summertime.

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, most recently at Lannieʼs Clocktower Cabaret, la Cour Art Bar, and Denver Botanic Gardens. Her trio of CDs are sold at Denver Botanic Gardensʼ Shop at the Gardens. She has recently been featured on radio station, JAZZ89 KUVO in Denver.
