“My Geography” is Linda’s new album consisting of twelve new original songs. Utilising modern technology, the album has musical contributions spanning three continents from guitar legends Albert Lee and Jerry Donahue, Merseybeat veteran Brian Saxophone Jones and renowned Bansuri flute player Baqir Abbas – who joined many of Linda’s musician friends in putting their time, faith and talent into the creation of this
This album project started life in Linda’s small attic studio in Preston, then moved to a converted shed in Padiham, was then sent across three continents to have world class musicians add their parts to it before finally returning home to be mixed by Allan Crookes at Hound Dog Studios in Liverpool. Its final journey was to Nashville to be mastered by Tommy Wiggins who was recommended by Linda’s friend Christopher Huston, a man who has 80+ gold discs for his production and engineering career, working for the likes of James Brown, Led Zeppelin and The Who.
Quite an impressive collaboration of people for an unsigned, unpublished artist. But when you add that Linda is a working mother of two boys with a pitiful budget and no management, it’s a major achievement and a testament to the wonderful people who have pulled out all the stops to get these songs out into the world. It’s about the spirit of musicians, the talent, the generosity, modern technology and what people can achieve when they’re all working towards one common goal.
