Linda''s voice is spell-binding with it''s pure sound and bell-like clarity. Her voice has a way of mesmerizing a crowd, whether it is a small coffee house venue or a festival packed with hundreds of people.
Linda started playing music about a decade ago, being drawn into the bluegrass music scene. She has played in several bands, trying her hand at various music styles from bluegrass and old-time music to novelty jazz.
In her debut release, "In the Corner", Linda culls from a wide variety of musical influences to put together a recording of stunning beauty and candor. A mix of Linda''s original songs and favorite cover songs, Linda felt drawn to each song, either from the beauty of the melody, the power in the lyrics, or both of these things.
"Hicks performs with taste and ability. Not only can she write, but she also knows how to choose excellent songs and deliver them with sensitivity and conviction." - Rich Warren, Sing Out! magazine
Along with her solo performances, Linda performs with two bands local to the area where she lives. The Vagaband is a four member group performing traditional, old-time and folk music. Deep and Simple consists of three members and performs music with a modern folk feel, many of the songs having been written by the group''s members.
