11 MP3 Songs
BLUES: Rhythm & Blues, COUNTRY: Country Folk
The Castle of Springfield was built by the Knights of Pithias during the early 20th century for widows and orphans. Now in the 21st century it has been dedicated to the Disability Community. In the year 2000 Linda was there for the dedication where "Live at The Castle" was recorded.
"DOWN ON ME" and "CAN'T BLAME IT ON THE MOON" She has her own style of the blues. In the beginning of her songs she sings the blues with the best of them but in the last verse she turns things around realizing life is not all bad, there will always be a better day.
"WILLOW TREE" will be featured on the new TV series "Broken Wings" and was written about a woman in Colorado that was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. She went to Chicago to see Dr. Kevorkian. There she died. "The spirit is like a Willow tree, in the storms of life it will bend" a quote from the song.
"BOULDER HILL" "The Hill" near Colorado University is where Linda started her singing career at the age of 15. From there she spent several years traveling as a solo act then as lead singer and bass player in bands,including, "Crystal Ship" and "Moon Dance".
"AS SURE AS THE STARS" is a waltz written for her son to help him sleep at night. "As sure as the stars dance in the sky, God has blessed you and kept you right by his side."
"RAINBOW UP TO HEAVEN" Again, Linda writes for her son, daughter and children, helping them to cope with death.
"THIS BROKEN HEART" speaks of young love lost. Beautifully done with just Linda and an acoustic guitar. Country star Tommy Overstreet joins Linda in the last verse.
A strong writer and passionate singer, this CD will not disappoint you!Broomfield Enterprise CD Review
"LIVE AT THE CASTLE", Linda Storey (Castle of Springfield)
Broomfield High Shool grad Linda Storey, formerly Linda Patterson, returns with her second CD recorded live at the Castle of Springfield in Missouri.
Storey, who lists legends Joni Mitchell and Bonnie Raitt as influences, performed the CD at the dedication of the castle, a performance space designed for performers and audiences with disabilities. Storey, who battled MS for much of her life, provides a mix of blues, country and rock mostly of the inspirational breed with songs like "Willow Tree," dedicated to a woman with MS who commited suicide, and "Can't Blame it on the Moon."
She's at her best on honest and straightforward country ballads like "This Broken Heart," which features country legend Tommy Overstreet on guitar. But the message is never far from the music, especially on "Moon," where she sings, "Can't blame it on the moon/ for these trials we've had /it's part of who we are/ and how we've come this far." Storey, who has resurrected her career post diagnosis, has certainly come far. CD's are available at Savage Bean in Broomfield, Albums on the Hill in Boulder, Twist and Shout in Denver and at https://www.tradebit.com.
