On her soul-stirring Anthem "Red White and Blue," Linda Stonestreet is in fine storysinging form! She wraps her emotion-soaked voice around lyrics that urge us to let go of hatred and won't let your heart go.
"Red White and Blue Let our colors ring true From the sound of the music That's carried us through..."
" Linda has a powerful voice that digs down deep into the human condition. Strength and depth are the calling cards she uses to move us to action."
.. Barbara Higbie
On writing for Film-
MOTION PICTURE EXECUTIVE in CHARGE of MUSIC MARCUS BARONE, in Los Angeles, loves to find hidden gems of talent. A major source of artists he uses in his films come from Northern California. "The writers are so special up there. They fly in their own wind creatively, answering to nobody, originating masterpieces that walk on water . One such artist that I work with is LINDA STONESTREET, who's voice and songwriting can project sensitivity in many aspects: In sort of "world / social speak" ; as soulful as Aretha, and as expressive as Patsy Cline and KD Lang. Film Music , whereas the drama on the screen, demands a songwriter to be, at many levels, lyrically, and poetically, aware of the actor's portrayal of feeling..or what the story / director is trying to achieve for the audience to feel. So you are writing a song, within parameters based on "Who am I affecting here". Linda Stonetreet can do all that..in her songwriting"
Bringer of the Light Reviews-
Linda Stonestreet’s latest release, Bringer of the Light, reveals the depth and breadth of her rich, rich voice as well as the wide range of musical styles she has on call for the expression of everything about Spirit. She gives us a little bit of folk, a little bit of country, even vocals that evoke a feeling of old time gospel (in her tribute to Nelson Mandela), chants, prayers – it is all there in a collection of songs that make up a wonderfully textural CD.
These lyrics are about Love – not ooey gooey romantic love ‘em and leave ‘em love, but capital “L” Loving Kindness: when you later hear yourself humming the music or singing those words, it’s enough to make you feel good about yourself and all of humanity. Stonestreet has stepped into the role of teacher and healer. Brava!!
Bringer of the Light is an important offering from Linda. You can feel the hope, the love, and ultimately the triumph of the human heart in each track. Blessed with a haunting and soulful voice Linda steps forward for us; leading and teaching in the highest form: by example!
Linda Stonestreet's new album "Bringer of the Light" is wonderful! I was blown away by the power of her voice and the lyrics she writes. This is a very heartfelt and deeply moving album. Linda's love of mother earth and her passion for spreading light around the world is so brilliantly woven into each track. Buy this album now! You will LOVE it!
There are a bunch of new favorites on my playlist from this album. Linda's earthy rhythms and vocals, uplifting lyrics, and a deep current of healing energies leave me feeling inspired and blessed. Bring it on, Bringer of the Light!
A 'Must Have' addition to any collection
Linda's album "Bringer of the Light" takes you to a peaceful place emanating from Mother Earth. Her amazing vocal range mixed with truly enlightened lyrics makes this a piece you will want to listen to over and over again. I am a long time fan, and have many other songs that are delightful, and soulful. But, watching her grow as an artist, in my opinion, this is her best work yet!
Love This Music!
Linda's strong, melodic voice draws me in. The lyrics take me to beautiful heights of love and grace. I found myself feeling grounded and peaceful as the music played in the background.
Beautiful voice, moving lyrics, great listen from this heartfelt musician.
Linda's voice feels like it emanates deep from the Earth and flows through every cell of my body as I listen to it.
Cool Cover Art

Pre album Reviews [Staci St Clair]
Dang… Linda Stonestreet is one of those rare, gifted individuals who has a very unique - not cookie cutter - type of voice. I love her tone and range and the control she has over her vocals. There are very few voices I hear that no matter what they sing (it could be happy birthday) will be so heartfelt and passionate that it will automatically make my eyes water. She is that person with a voice I love. Can't wait for the whole album!

“What sticks in my mind about Linda Stonestreet is when she plays music she fully engages her audience and takes her time, is very centered and strong, with a great sense of irony and humor. Powerhouse voice! She is fully plugged into her power-source. ” — Joanne Rand
