Linda's Bio & Adventures
Linda Ferro has been supporting and participating in music and language arts activities in California’s North Bay area for over twenty years. With loving support from a very musical family, she studied classical piano and voice, and later graduated with Distinction from Sonoma State University, studying linguistics and writing. Linda is passionate about singing, songwriting, performing, anything to do with words, and enjoys a broad spectrum of creative activities.  Favorite past projects include:
 
• Developing and implementing an elementary school vocal music program including community performances, as a Grant Recipient of the California Arts Council “Artist in the Schools” program;
• Planning and hosting a short special-feature program, “Songwriter’s Showcase” for local TV50 television station;
•  Musical Director, pianist, and vocal coach for “The Marquee Theater” group & Camp Rose Players;

Linda FerroIn 2007, Linda joyously planned, recorded, and co-produced her debut solo CD, Remember This, at Prairie Sun Recording Studio in Cotati, California with Producer Mark (“Mooka”) Rennick. This expansive project is a multi-genre musical odyssey of original songs, with her grand piano and keyboard accompaniment, including Blues, Jazz, classy ballads and art-pieces, with supporting performances by amazing Bay Area studio artists and fine local musicians, including Volker Strifler on guitar, and Babtunde Lea on drums.
 
Linda has enjoyed performing her Blues and Jazz-infused music as a solo artist, and as a lead singer/keyboardist in the bands Catalyst, My Other Car, Blue Blazes and UltraSound. Now focusing on her solo career, THE LINDA FERRO BAND is off and running.  Currently, she is starting to assist other artists with the development and production of their music.
 
When not working on music projects, Linda enjoys reading, hangin' out with family, friends and her beau Mal, diggin' and planting in the garden.  She hopes to resume working on creative writing projects, including a children’s alphabet book and poetry collection.  Linda lives in Northern California among the Oak trees, with her dog "Roxy," too many keyboards and too many pairs of shoes.
