Linda Rae has always loved music and has been singing as long as she can remember. Her exposure to Collin Raye and Karen-Taylor Good is what led her to song writing. She makes regular trips to Nashville, taking classes and recording music at Beaird Music Group and Rough Edges Studio.
Linda Rae distills her life experiences into her melodies and lyrics. She evokes words and music that are both generous and genuine. Her stories are revealed in a voice of striking purity.
A theme that has something to do with hope is woven into her music. “Don’t worry ‘bout tomorrow, a little faith is a big deal, and rescue me, I know that you can” are just a few or her song lyric messages.
You have probably noticed some Appalachian Mountain music if you've had time to do some listening. Linda and her husband have been involved in a service organization called Appalachia Service Project (ASP) for about 12 years. They travel to the Appalachia Mountain region with a group of youth and adults for a week every summer to help families repair their homes.
"The warmth and dedication of the people that I have met in the Appalachia region will always remain close to my heart. "Appalachia", and "Build Upon the Rock" are about my ASP experiences.
"I wrote "America's Comin' Through" when my nephew was in Iraq. This song is about the endless efforts of Americans to help, not only in the service, but with natural disasters."
More recently, Linda Rae wrote songs for her son’s California wedding. The songs and tracks are available by request, at the present. The song “Love is Patient, Love is Kind”(derived from 1 Corinthians 13) will include sheet music for piano and guitar. Please contact Linda Rae through her website if you are interested in the song and need it now. "The Love Between a Mother and a Son" is also available by request. It was used for the mother-son dance for Linda Rae and her son.
“Family Songs" has arrived and is available.
Song titles include:
“What Else is a Daddy Supposed to do?”
“Watch Your Little Baby Grow”
“Havin’ Fun” (You’re All Grown Up) and
“Amigo, My Friend”.
The first two songs are perfect for new parents, baby showers, baby dedications, and power point presentations of a child’s growth, which are being used at weddings. The tracks are included and were especially made enjoyable for baby’s naptime, or for dancing and singing. "Amigo, my Friend" is about pets and friendship.
