Linda Lubell has just released her new CD, “Perfect Heart”, recorded in Chicago with Victor Sanders at Lakeside Media. “Perfect Heart” is a collection of original songs that encompass the musical styles of Folk/Rock, Irish, and Country, featuring some of the best musicians in the Chicago area. This collection of songs contains great sensitivity and lyrical beauty echoing the timber and temperament of Shakespeare, added to Linda’s richly sweet voice reminiscent of Joan Baez. Her influences include Peter Gabriel, James Taylor, Paul Simon, and Nanci Griffith, allowing for a unique variety of styles throughout the album. “Perfect Heart” is already receiving airplay both nationally and internationally.

Now based in Chicago, Linda fled Santa Barbara in the 80’s to find a place in the world, and ended up at the Theatre School at DePaul University. The acting thing allowed her to delve deeply into the lines of Shakespeare, her favorite author of poetry. She hooked up with a friend of a friend after school and began a folk duo, playing the circuit, having fun, but not making any money. So she went back to school and became a teacher. Then, after adopting her 2 absolutely disarmingly vibrant children from Guatemala, she stayed home to allow them to fill her life with beautiful, joy-filled chaos. Now she’s back on stage with her own words and music that reflect everything she’s gone through in her life, and she gives it all to you. She has played at venues all over Chicago, including Uncommon Ground, No Exit, Clearwater Saloon and at many summer festivals and peace meetings.

For Linda, songwriting became a way to escape the difficulties and stress of life, to feel the soul and heart inside of her unlock and pour out the reality within. If only everyone could do such a thing. Singing is a way to fly. Putting the two together, Linda makes her way through her songs with a beautifully rich voice and gentle style. She shares her emotions with us in an honest and open-hearted style, and from listening to her songs we begin to feel that the ordinary in our lives is much more than that. Her CD “Perfect Heart” contains songs to help us overcome our daily hardships, to help us survive, and to help us dream.

CDs are available through, or in Chicago at Women and Children First, Old Town School of Folk Music and Music Emporium.
