Linda Eder is regarded as America’s most popular and acclaimed interpreter of Pop, Standard and Theatrical genres. When she performs “live” in concert, it is amazing to experience her remarkable ability to move from one genre to another with ease and perform each one as well as all the others.
The singer and actress gained notoriety on the 1987 season of “Star Search,” during which she won for unprecedented 12 straight weeks. She made her Broadway debut in the 1997 new musical Jekyll & Hyde, originating the role of Lucy, for which she was rewarded with a Drama Desk nomination. Eder blew the roof off New York City’s Plymouth Theatre eight performances a week belting out her signature songs “Someone Like You” and “A New Life.” This sent her already rapidly rising star blazing across the sky making her one of America’s most beloved singers and dynamic “live” performers. Eder’s music highlights her abundant vocal gifts as well as her skill for delivering dramatic, emotionally resonant interpretations of mostly familiar songs while making them her own. Her highly successful first Christmas album, Christmas Stays the Same, is a perfect example of the way she can transform and interpret best loved music and make it her own without compromising the original. Eder’s discography consists of 16 solo recordings and numerous musical recordings, including The Other Side of Me, a Country Pop blend of contemporary music; a duet cover of Roy Orbison’s “Crying” with Clay Aiken; and a unique twist on the classic “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” which she rewrote and recorded with her son, Jake. She has been featured on numerous PBS concert specials, as well as Bravo TV and Animal Planet network programs. She continues to perform for sold-out crowds in venues around the world.
