"Absolutely without question we were blown away!"

"We were totally entranced with Linda's performance the entire evening. The voice of an angel! True showmanship and professional. Not to mention beautiful both inside and out. We can't wait to host another party and have Linda perform again for us our family and friends. Thank you again Linda!" - Cindy, B. - Gig Salad

"Linda sings from the heart."

"She's a cool, sophisticated, and a gifted performer. Linda sings like an exotic bird and presents her material in the grand tradition of a sultry night club cabaret. Support Linda by enjoying an evening of song and romance. You won't leave before the encore!” - Jack D. for Gig Salad

"Standards offered with pathos, sexuality, and grace"

"Ms. Solotaire serves songs--mostly standards, with some contemporary and new work thrown in (the last which we hope to hear more of)--as if she were serving you a beautiful meal she had made, in which the complements are as luscious as the main dish--while remaining complements. I am writing of the underlying interplay of feeling in the songs, which Ms. Solotaire brings out with her voice, her phrasing, her expressions, her grace at the microphone. When there is happiness in a song, there is also a beautiful sort of loss. When there is loss, the person is still there, somewhere. If you are a child, she is a good fairy; if a man, she is a lover whose longing and desire you could cure if everything were different; if you are a woman, she is offering you the deepest feelings and ironies you could experience. Come just to listen to her over-the-top vulnerable performance of "Come Rain or Come Shine." - Anthony N. - posted on Gig Salad
