Showcasing one of the greatest voices of our time, Linda Eder’s diverse repertoire spans Broadway, Standards, Pop, Country, and Jazz. When she performs “live” in concert, it is amazing to experience the ease with which she moves back and forth from one genre to another as if she were gifted with the vocal ability to perform each genre as well as all the others. Eder launched her recording career in 1991 with her self-titled debut album, and soon established a vital niche as America’s most popular and acclaimed new interpreter of Pop, Standard and theatrical genres. She released two more solo albums before starring in the Broadway production of Jekyll & Hyde. As the tragic character “Lucy,” Eder blew the roof off New York City’s Plymouth theatre as she belted out her signature songs “Someone Like You” and “A New Life.” Her performance earned her a Drama Desk nomination, and secured her a spot as one of America’s most beloved singers and dynamic “live” performers. Stephen Holden of the New York Times wrote, “What do we mean when we use the word perfection? The question arises every time I watch the pop singer Linda Eder….” After leaving Broadway, Eder’s recording career continued “full steam ahead” with 18 solo recordings and numerous musical recordings. In 2008, she stepped outside her “wheelhouse” to record "The Other Side of Me", a Country Pop blend featuring a song written by Linda herself, and in June, 2010, she and Clay Aiken covered Roy Orbison’s “Crying” as a duet on Aiken’s album, Tried & True. In 2013, Eder established her own record company, Tressamail, Inc. She has appeared on television in her own prime time Animal Planet special about singers with a passion for horses, and has been featured on numerous PBS television concert specials including Hallelujah Broadway, Linda Eder: The PBS Concert, Best of Broadway: The Leading Ladies, Best of Broadway: The Love Songs, Jim Brickman Plays the Disney Songbook, and her 2001 holiday concert, Christmas Stays the Same. The concert stage remains the mainstay of Eder’s career. She has performed for sold-out crowds across the country and throughout Europe at prestigious venues such as Carnegie Hall, The Kennedy Center, The Palace Theatre, Radio City Music Hall, Wolftrap, New York City’s Town Hall, and Davies Hall, and has collaborated with the late Oscar-winning composer and pianist Marvin Hamlisch, Tony-winner Michael Feinstein, and Boston Pops conductor Keith Lockhart, among many others.
