LINDA LEWIS

LINDA LEWIS

Acts 2018

Linda Lewis is one of Britain’s most respected and talented singer songwriters, whose career spans more than four decades. With her five-octave vocal range, she has fused folk, soul, pop and reggae into a unique signature sound that is now an integral part of the pop music landscape.

Covers and samples of her music have been used by artists including Joss Stone and Common, and recent collaborations with Basement Jaxx, Turin Brakes and Jamiroquai show her impact remains just as powerful today as it was in the 1970s.

Linda continues to record and perform. In recent years she has appeared at Glastonbury, the Montreaux Jazz Festival, the Royal Festival Hall, the Barbican, the V&A and the Jazz Cafe. Her live album Live in Old Smokey was recorded during a residency at Ronnie Scott’s.

It’s in His Kiss” and “Rock-a-Doodle-Doo” were huge selling chart hits in the mid seventies for Linda, when she toured with Cat Stevens and Captain Beefheart. Linda played main stage at the first Glastonbury festival and the opening act at Knebworth festival.  Her most recent hit song, “Old Smokey”was covered by rapper Common and reached No 1 in the USA.
