Showcasing one of the greatest contemporary voices of our time, Linda Eder's diverse repertoire spans Broadway, standards, pop, country and jazz. As the tragic character "Lucy" in the Broadway musical Jekyll & Hyde, from composer Frank Wildhorn, Eder blew the roof off of New York's Plymouth Theatre each night as she belted out signature songs "Someone Like You" and "A New Life". Her Broadway debut, for which she was rewarded with a Drama Desk nomination, sent her already rapidly rising star blazing across the sky, securing her spot as one of America's most beloved singers and dynamic live performers. Stephen Holden of the New York Times wrote, "What do we mean when we use the word perfection? The question arises every time I watch the pop singer Linda Eder..."
Most recently, Linda crowned her two-decade recording career with a new album, "Now," which reunited Eder with Broadway and pop composer Frank Wildhorn. The new release marked the musical return of this legendary team after six years. Eder's transcendent voice is the perfect complement to Wildhorn's lush, imaginative music. The 12 dynamic tracks on "Now" elevate the spirit while capturing many moods.
Eder launched her recording career in 1991 with her self-titled debut album and soon established a vital niche as America's most popular and acclaimed new interpreter of pop standards and theatrical songs with 14 solo albums and 12 musical recordings. Those albums highlight Eder's abundant vocal gifts as well as her skill for delivering dramatic, emotionally resonant interpretations of familiar songs while making them her own. She followed up with "The Other Side of Me," a country pop blend of contemporary music - including a song written by Eder.
In Fall 2010, Linda released "Soundtrack." Produced by Peter Collins, "Soundtrack" finds Eder going to the movies and adding new dimensions to an eclectic mix of themes from the silver screen. The 12 tracks span the last 50 years in cinema, from Henry Mancini's "Charade," the title tune of the 1963 movie starring Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn, to "Falling Slowly," the Best Original Song Academy Award winner from the movie Once.
In June 2010, Linda and Clay Aiken coverEd Roy Orbison's "Crying" as a duet on Clay's new album "Tried & True." She was recently featured on two PBS television specials including Clay Aiken's Tried & True and Hallelujah Broadway.
The concert stage remains the mainstay of Eder's career. She has performed for sold-out crowds and venues across the country and throughout Europe. Her concerts have been televised on Bravo and PBS. Trail Mix, her primetime Animal Planet special, was a natural extension of her love of animals for this Minnesota native who remains a "farm girl" at heart.
