Linda Tillery 75th Birthday Celebration

Linda Tillery has been an influential force in the northern California music scene bringing her talent to vocal styling, arranging, music production, and ethnomusicology. Born and raised in San Francisco, she grew up listening to jazz and blues but her entry into performing in the Bay Area was in 1968 with the psychedelic soul group, The Loading Zone. She is recognized as a pioneer in Women’s music, with her second solo album titled Linda Tillery released on Olivia Records in 1977. In addition to performing, she was the producer on three of Olivia’s first eight albums. Within the women’s music genre, she has collaborated with June Millington, Deidre McCalla, Barbara Higbie, Holly Near, Margie Adam, and others. Other opportunities followed, with Linda working as a session musician, singing and occasionally playing drums with Santana, Boz Scaggs, Huey Lewis and the News, and the Turtle Island String Quartet. Tillery was nominated for a Grammy Award in 1997 for Best Musical Album for Children.
