Today’s Artist Spotlight is on Linda Debella. Are you ready for some happy music? Jupiter Moon was released a few months ago and I had a chance to give it a listen.
My favorite songs off the album are: Crush and Jupiter Moon.
Crush is a nice upbeat song. Close your eyes and listen. This is a song that says love. It can be love the Earth, people, whatever. Like I said in the beginning, this is good for your soul, carefree music. It will make you jovial and it will make you dance.
Linda’s voice is beautiful on Jupiter Moon. It has this hippy feel to it, just makes you want to dance around in circles with a crown of flowers around your head. The music is soothing. Mellow enough to have playing softly in the background if you are having a gathering at your home.
Grab your headphones and listen to Jupiter Moon.
About Linda Debella
Growing up outside Los Angeles, Linda took years of classical piano lessons, and listened almost exclusively to pop radio. She says there’s nothing like the perfect “3-minute song” – how it can move people in a way that nothing else can. Her first job was at a Hollywood recording studio and, as a budding songwriter, she instantly fell in love with music production. It was there that she learned the basics of recording and engineering that allows her to seamlessly weave together complex vocal harmonies and instrumentation to create her unique sound.
Linda’s been influenced by so many artists and types of music that it’s impossible to mention them all – from Don Henley, Paul Simon and U2, to Sade, Prince, and Lenny Kravitz, to more current pop singer-songwriters like One Republic, Sara Bareilles and Michael Franti. But it’s always been about the songs. And Linda’s true gift, like many of these artists, is creating stories that we recognize in our own lives.
Linda believes music can ignite and inspire people. She combines smart lyrics with deftly crafted music and vocal arrangements that reflect the spirit of the songs. “It’s my belief that people are looking to be moved by music, both sonically and lyrically,” the singer says. Her debut album, Jupiter Moon, portrays a hopeful and romantic outlook for the future. It centers around Linda’s thoughtful and intelligent reflections on not just personal happiness and love, but a more global hope for, dare we say, “world peace.”
As creative as Linda is in the studio with her writing and production, she and her band bring a powerful show to the stage in clubs around Los Angeles.
