Linda Mizzi Band
As a songwriter, Linda Mizzi, based in Katoomba in the NSW Blue Mountains, covers a lot of territory, and she does it with considerable and occasionally quirky charm. “Of course, music is far more porous than genre-definers would have us believe, and such is the case with her music” – Predominantly a folk singer songwriter, Linda does let her muse wander where it may. Her influences are as diverse as Patty Griffin, Lucinda Williams, Rickie Lee Jones and even the late Doris Day. Linda performs as a solo artist but is usually joined by her band; Alexander Keller – on bass guitar, Ian Neil Morrison on drums and percussion, Stephen Waters on lead guitar, and Michelle Morrison on Piano Accordion. Additionally, Simon Crosbie sometimes accompanies herself or the full band on harmonica and backing vocals – no stranger to her music, Simon has recorded on Linda’s last two albums.
Her newest album titled REAL PEOPLE was released in 2018 and received a number of reviews and airplay – in Europe, the US and the UK.
As a songwriter primarily, Linda continues to write almost daily – conveying messages and her observations of life through her songwriting. Linda and the band are currently working on a new album to hopefully be released in 2019.
