Linda broke through as the woeful character “Lucy” in the hit Broadway musical “Jekyll & Hyde”. Each performance of the show at New York’s Plymouth Theatre came to a standing ovation halt as she threw herself into such memorable show stoppers as “Someone Like You” and “A New Life”. This Broadway debut earned her a Drama Desk nomination and secured her a place as one of America’s best loved singers and energizing live performers.
In 1991 Eder launched her recording career with a self –titled album and has since recorded fourteen solo albums, establishing her as one of the country’s top interpreters of pop standards and theatrical music. These bestselling albums have highlighted Eder’s voice and dramatic phrasing by allowing her to perform the songs as she hears them.
While recording is a large part of her performing schedule, her true love is the live stage. She has performed in such prestigious performing centers as Carnegie Hall, The Town Hall, The Kennedy Center and Radio City Music Hall and collaborated with such greats as the late Oscar-winning composer Marvin Hamlish, Tony-winner Michael Feinstein and Boston Pops Orchestra Conductor Keith Lockhart. She has also appeared on Bravo and PBS and her show “Trail Mix” which was shown as an Animal Planet special was a result of her natural love of animals.
