Linda Eder’s story has a fairy-tale quality to it; the ease that seems to dominate her ascension is testimony to her gifts. Her first true national exposure was via “Star Search,” where she had an unprecedented 13-weeks of success. She created the leading role of Lucy in “Jekyll & Hyde,” which went on a 35-city tour before opening on Broadway in 1997. USA Today reviewed the Broadway version of “Jekyll & Hyde,” describing Linda as “a captivating presence and a Streisand-esque singing voice that elevates everything it touches.” Linda’s memorable performance as Lucy earned her the Theatre World Award for Best Broadway Debut as well as the Drama Desk and Outer Critics’ Circle Award Nominations for Best Actress in a Musical.
Her solo albums: “LINDA EDER” (RCA), “AND SO MUCH MORE” (Angel), “IT’S TIME” (Atlantic), “CHRISTMAS STAYS THE SAME” (Atlantic), “GOLD” (Atlantic), “BROADWAY MY WAY” (ATLANTIC) and “STORYBOOK (ANGEL/EMI) have won Linda critical and popular accolades. A DVD version of Linda’s holiday concert, taped live during her Bravo TV special in 2001, “CHRISTMAS STAYS THE SAME” (Rhino), was released this fall.
Sometime in between recording and performing across the country, she realized a life-long dream: Linda performed three sold-out concerts at Carnegie Hall to what the New York Times described as a “thunderously adoring audience.” Constant comparisons to Judy Garland, Ella Fitzgerald, Barbara Streisand, Celine Dion and other great voices have catapulted Linda into an elite group of singers and onto television and radio shows.
