London based Roots singer-songwriter Linda Em hasn't forgotten her Southern Ireland roots with shades of Celtic running throughout her music. With both BBC and Irish radio support for her current debut album 'Shadow Lands' (out now), new single 'Blue Girl' is available on download on 29th February. The blues roots single takes you back to the 1960's Phil Spector 'Wall Of Sound' girl group soul era, with Linda's pure and raw vocal beautifully intertwining with the soulful backing singers.
Marty's review: Linda's stripped back, acoustic, roots sound on "Blue Girl" is so refreshing to hear. Her crisp, raw and honest vocal style is unique and more than outshines similar artists I have heard. The production is clean with mandolin, simple guitar riffs, a shuffling drum beat and some beautiful backup harmonies. This song is a joy to listen to and more than worthy of repeated plays.
