About Linda

As a children’s musician and songwriter, Linda creates and shares music that reflect the values she holds near and dear to her heart; songs of peace, kindness, diversity & respect for all living things. 

Linda founded the Nye Beach Montessori School in Newport, Oregon back in 1983. She recently passed the baton to a new teacher-owner and it continues to be a thriving educational center in the Newport community. Linda gained so much of her inspiration through working with the many children who passed through her school over the years. These children have been a constant inspiration for her songwriting and many sing with Linda on her albums. 

Linda often travels to her favorite islands of Hawai’i, the Gulf Coast of Florida, and the remote whale birthing lagoons of Baja where the beauty and serenity of the landscapes, people and marine life inspire her songwriting. She performs throughout the Northwest in schools, stores, libraries, and festivals.
