A recent tune of mine, co-written with Native American songwriter, Gen Huitt, is up for a Namy! ("Native American Music Award")
The song is called "Missing" and we find out in Sept 2022 if we have won. However, just the fact that the song was nominated alone is simply incredible to me! I did have some excellent surprise help on song production by Kenny Lee Lewis of "The Steve Miller Band" .... that didn't hurt anything! I love that band!
Born in New Orleans, traveled to Montana ... then headed straight to Nashville, Linda Mckenzie is an independent, singer-songwriter/publisher who creates music in a Bluesy-Pop-Americana-Country kind of fashion. Lyrics without the fluff ...and music from the heart, approached by inspiration obtained from life's true grit. Whether playing solo with just her guitar, or jammin' with her full Nashville band, Linda has a soulful & sincere way of getting her musical message across. This versatile indie singer/songwriter/cancer survivor likes to boast that "Jesus and music saved me". Linda's voice has been heard nationwide on radio jingles for companies such as National Car Rentals & Sheridan Hotel chains. A founding member of the Colorado Songwriters Assocation and a self professed "wannabe cowgirl who never had a horse", Linda says the music will pick you (and not the other way around)!
