Linda’s latest single is the second in a monthly series of releases that precedes her third album scheduled for an Autumn 2022 launch.
Freedom for Me is a contemporary acoustic folk track and features Beth Porter on cello and John Breese on guitar and acoustic bass, with Linda performing the main vocal and harmonies with Josh Clark at Get Real Audio in Chippenham, UK.
Previously recorded and released by soprano Katerina Mina, the song has been stripped back to its folk roots with an arrangement by Linda and interpretations on the main melody beautifully played by Beth.
Here’s what people are saying about it:
“Here’s a new voice to me but my goodness what an impression it made.”
BBC RADIO WALES/ Frank Hennessy, Celtic Heartbeat
“Melancholy instrumentation touched with positive vocals…Light & Shade! Excellent track! Karl Burtonshawe Radio Tircoed.
“Oh – this is beautiful.” Lynne Nash. Bands in The Boudoir/UK Country Music
From Talent Is Timeless members
“Lovely song and singing.”
“A beautiful arrangement.”
“Fabulous. What a song.” Dan Farrell
“Beautiful song and beautifully sung and delivered.”
Although this track is in the acoustic/ folk genre, other songs on Linda’s new album cross over to R & B, soft rock and pop, with acoustic covers of some established tunes.
“I decided to call it ‘70’ as a tongue in cheek reference to Adele’s ‘30’ album as I wrote many of my songs in my thirties but I only started to record and release them, along with some new material, when I reached the age of 70!” Linda says.
With three albums put to bed in two years, the Stockport songwriter now has plans to perform them live. “It’s been a strange time for everyone this past two years and this project has been challenging but it kept me going through the pandemic – now it’s time to get out there and share my music with others.”
Freedom for Me by Linda Lamon is a summer single that reminds us of the importance of nature and is now out in digital stores for streaming or downloading.
