Brenda Linton draws from folk, roots, and blues music to create songs that are haunting yet gutsy in laying bare life’s truths and mysteries. The wide range of her vocal abilities and intimate connection with audiences result in live performances that are both exciting and deeply moving. Linton\'s a capella renditions of Appalachian and Celtic ballads leave listeners mesmerized by the purity of her voice and musical spirit. In 2009, Linton began a collaboration with musicians and songwriters in North Carolina\'s Triangle area to record a new album of original songs and arrangements called Sparkle Plenty. The lyric and narrative writing reflected in Sparkle Plenty takes the listener on a journey of diverse moods and locales ranging from an 18th century rice plantation to a late-night bar where regret hangs in the air like smoke. Co-produced by Rick Lassiter, the album also showcases a traditional ballad from Newfoundland and a poignant song by Laura Silvestri about a young woman\'s search for the grandmother she never met. The first track, “No Reason at All,” has been made into a music video by independent film maker, Michael Babbitt, and can be viewed via YouTube and Linton\'s website. In 2011, Linton will perform at selected venues in North Carolina supported by the Kinglets, a trio of talented musicians well known to Triangle audiences who also provided creative ideas to the recording of Sparkle Plenty: Dave Smith, guitars and vocals; Rick Lassiter, double bass; and Robert Hudson, drums, percussion and vocals. Sparkle Plenty and The Secret can be purchased locally at Quail Ridge Books & Music or ordered on-line at CD Baby or www.brendalinton.com. Digital downloads of tracks from Sparkle Plenty are available through CD Baby, iTunes, DigStation, and Amazon.com. “A back road ride straight to Heartbreak Hotel, SPARKLE PLENTY has more perspectives on the heart than an episode of \'House.\' Very well produced, Linton covers a lot of ground stylistically, flying effortlessly from folk to blues and even classical. Does it sparkle? Plenty.” - Jeff Reid, The Beat Magazine
