Linda Bishop has been performing music in one way or another since joining her first band, Venus, at the age of sixteen. She spent a few years in the Mississippi and Nashville music scenes before coming to the Dallas area in the late 1980s.
Linda formed her own original rock band in 1990 and was named one of the top female vocalists in Dallas/Ft. Worth by The Dallas Music News and Buddy magazine.
In the mid 90s, Linda recorded a Contemporary Christian album, Walk Through the Fields, and traveled the country giving concerts at church events.
Linda is the former lead vocalist and co-band leader of the band "Mars Hill" formed in 2000 in Dallas. She is currently the co-band leader and lead singer for the dance/variety band Special Edition in Dallas.
Linda has also formed an all-classic rock band with Dave Hineman of The Flavours called Dream On.
Linda has performed with the all-disco band Le Freak at many Dallas Cowboys games and was known on stage as "Nevada Nikki".
Linda's voice has been requested for various studio projects and corporate jingles, including the Joe's Crab Shack Television commercial that ran for many years.
Linda's strength lies not only in her powerful and versatile voice (focusing on rock, jazz, soul and blues) but also in her theatrical and charismatic stage performance.
Linda can currently be seen performing with Special Edition and Dream On at venues all over the Dallas/Ft. Worth area. For information on upcoming gigs please see the Public Event Schedule on the top of this page or sign up LindaMusic.com Newsletter.
Hope to see you at a gig soon!
