Award winning singer songwriter LINDA McLEAN writes taut memorable songs full of fire and emotion inspired by the natural beauty of her Canadian landscape.
“Once in a great while, out of the blue, comes an indie masterpiece. Such is the case of Linda McLean's NO LANGUAGE....Another superb Canadian female singer-songwriter you need to seek out.” (Maverick Magazine, UK). NO LANGUAGE follows steadfastly on the heels of her brilliant debut CD BETTY'S ROOM (Rounder/Europe, 2003) “these are songs that have been lived. Linda is a singer/songwriter in the best tradition of fellow Canadian Joni Mitchell's 70's work.” (VARA Radio, The Netherlands). Creating a stir on both sides of the Atlantic, music reviewers are ranking her among the best of her North American contemporaries; descriptors such as“country-tinged beauty with reference points stretching from Lucinda Williams to KD Lang.” (UK Music Media Review), and, "There is a 'holy trinity' of Canadian singer songwriters, Sarah Harmer, Kathleen Edwards and Linda McLean."(CBC Radio), and, “straddling the line between roots stylings and an adult contemporary that possess the ring of hard earned truths.”(Exclaim Magazine, Canada), are backed by hometown endorsements like “These are tunes with the ache and retrospective wisdom of a dame in her prime.”(NOW Magazine, Toronto) "the arrival of a committed and focused artist.”(Toronto Star). “Linda really is in a class of her own when it comes to her vocals...” (Pennyblack Music, UK)
