Linda Tillery
Linda Tillery
Linda Tillery's career began in 1967 as lead singer of the Berkeley based, psychedelic soul band, Loading Zone. Since those early days she has collaborated as vocalist and percussionist on more than eighty recordings with the likes of Santana, Huey Lewis and the News, The Whispers, Taj Mahal, Kenny and Pete and Sheila Escovedo. She was both artist and producer at Olivia Records, was a founding member of Bobby McFerrin's Voicestra, and founded Linda Tillery and the Cultural Heritage Choir. Linda’s journey is a true representation of the Bay Area music scene – through psychedelic 60’s soul, groundbreaking 70’s activism, 80’s R&B glitz, numerous cross cultural collaborations and since 1990, her exploration into the roots of the African American music experience. Now, in 2018, she is at the height of her musical powers, continuing her adventures in sound, and exploring what it means to be a local legend.
