The pictures are out of order but easy to figure out. There’s quite a few going back to when I was 19 and living in Oregon. Thank you to @Mark Oblinger for nominating me!
Meet Linda Storey | Singer / Songwriter
We had the good fortune of connecting with Linda Storey and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Linda, why did you pursue a creative career?
I was inspired mostly by mom, who was a musician. She was an excellent singer and played piano. Most mornings, I would wake up to her singing or playing records while she worked in our house in Broomfield, Colorado.
I started playing the piano at the age of three. I sang in the children’s choir at church and was singing solos on stage by the time I reached third grade.
My older brother, Brad, had a band called The Surftones. He was the lead singer and lead guitarist. I switched to playing guitar when I was eleven. It made more sense to me as I could carry my guitar with me anywhere and sing. My mind was made up before I was even a teenager that I would be a musician.
When I was fifteen years old, music promoter Chuck Morris came to my hometown. I found out that he was looking for talent, so I went in for an audition. He asked to manage me and did so for a couple of years until I left town for the northwest.
