A 16-year-old singer/songwriter with a voice to be reckoned with and a style which transcends multiple genres………
Meet Linnea Sköld
Linnea’s music journey began with piano lessons before she started school. Within three years, under the direction of Kristin Yost (centreformusicalminds.org), Linnea became the 2011 National Finalist at the Roland Piano Festival in Los Angeles. She developed her vocal skills with the Collin County Chorus, NTPA’s musical theatre productions, and vocal coaching by her mother.
Linnea’s versatility as a singer has been influenced by eighties tunes she has heard growing up as well as some old classics along the way. She incorporates elements of pop, rock, jazz, R&B, and country music into her original work, as well as her own arrangements of cover tunes.
Linnea has performed at pop showcases at SMU, Salubrious, The Gallery 8680, and Relay for Life. She was the first place winner at the 2017 Frisco’s Got Talent competition and the 2017 Legacy Road Music Festival in Prosper. This spring, Linnea won first runner up at DFW Icon. Most recently, she performed in a live music showcase hosted by Frisco Arts & Melody of Hope, securing her a spot as a Melody of Hope Musician at non-profit events in the DFW Metroplex. She looks forward to sharing her love for music.
Linnea is currently recording her first EP with Nigel Rivers as her producer ("Nigel is the go-to bassist for artists around the world" - Dallas Observer article).
