Chinese Character for "Life" Biography

“Linq” Bio Photo by David Brothers
       photo by David Brothers

She saw Led Zeppelin on their first US tour and loves Joan Baez, but don’t expect some wide-eyed hippie in tie-dye cooing about love and daisies. Sure, if you went to the first Woodstock and you want peace-loving music, you’ve come to the right place, but your kids will also love her refreshingly direct folk-rock with a touch of blues, vintage R&B and yep, even techno, with anthems that’ll make you dance around your living room or call your congress person, some at the same time.

Like so many others, she took piano as a kid and taught herself the guitar as a young adult, but she made a detour to become a pharmacist. Not just one of those white-coated clerks at a chain store, but at her own store. At the young age of 55, she climbed up on stage, sans the lab coat, and sang for an audience that was so enthusiastic that soon after she sold the pharmacy and made music a focus. Linq does nothing halfway, diving into the music world with a single in 2003 and then her first album Journey in 2004. Another full-length album, Fast Moving Dream, came out in 2006, followed by both Life Goes On and Rx and the Side Effects in 2009, live solo album Caught in the Act Acoustic in 2011, and most recently Disconnect in 2013.

Linq performs around New England and at selected gigs outside the region including BB King’s Blues Club in Nashville in 2009 and the 2011 We R Indie/Indiegrrl International Conference in Knoxville. Her first video, “George Orwell Where Are You?” has remained near the top of the list of Neil Young’s Living With War Today Top Protest Videos since it debuted in 2007. She’s been the featured artist on several sites including Indiegrrl, Gay Guitarists Worldwide, GoGirls and more.

Awards include an Honorable Mention for “Tired” from the International Narrative Song Competition, in the top 50 in the American Idol Underground (“Victim of the War”), and Fast Moving Dream was in the top 40 on the Outvoice charts for an entire year. "Change the Picture" was nominated for the 2009 Just Plain Folks Music Awards (world’s largest with 560,000 song submissions) in the Political Song category. Linq was also one of the five nominees for OUTMusician of the Year (music + activism) in the 2009 OUTMusic Awards, and she was named Musical Artist of 2009 in the 2009 Pride in the Arts Awards. David Byrne of The Windy City Times (Chicago, IL) named title track “Life Goes On” the 2009 Song of the Year. She was named OUTstanding OUTMusician at the 7th Annual OUTMusic Awards in May 2011 and was one of the finalists in a Songwriter Showdown in Knoxville in August 2011.

Rx and the Side Effects broke into the Roots Music Report Top 50 Folk the first week out and remained there for five weeks, peaking at #23 the week of September 25, 2009. The album also peaked at #4 in the Massachusetts Section (all genres) the same week.

Disconnect spent multiple weeks in the Roots Music Report Top Fifty Folk Chart and in the Weekly Top 50 Massachusetts Album Chart in January and February 2014, and “Seneca Falls to Selma” spent a week at #14 in the Top Fifty Weekly Top 50 Folk Song Chart.

Linq believes that music is the most effective tool we have to bring people together, to celebrate each other and to break down barriers. And if it takes a former pharmacist to do that, all the better. It’s a medicine we can all use.

    D. Aquino, Greenfield Town Crier, March 13, 2009

    “As an indie music writer, I feel seriously outclassed here. Linq has no business being on an indie site. She should be opening for Bob Dylan. Or Joni Mitchell. Janis Ian would love her too. It’s not just Linq’s talent that puts her on this level. As a protest folk singer/songwriter and activist, she somehow manages to avoid the “Everything Sucks” sub-genre that so many indie protest folkies fall into.”
    J. Layton,, March 7, 2009

    “Linq’s songs can be boldly emphatic as well as intimate. Possessed of a fine musical voice, she can sing candidly about broken relationships as well as rally people with her social comment/social protest songs.”

    Folk singer Linq releases her sixth CD Disconnect

    It’s easy to see why modern protest singer Linq was voted OUTstanding OUTmusican in 2011 at the 7th OUTmusic Awards if you listen to her wonderful CD, Disconnect. With threads of connection and disconnection ghosting throughout, the eleven song disc features her trademark original political folk as well as a fitting Tom Petty cover. The songs feature her very capable band, with June Millington on guitar and more, Lee Madeloni on drums, bass and more; plus others on bass and percussion. Linq plays acoustic guitar and sings on these satisfying songs, from the title cut, about how too many of us can’t tear ourselves away from modern technology, to the biting “Oh Bully,” a tragic story of a youngster who took his life. Released on October 15, 2013, it will be available at CD Baby, Amazon, iTunes and other sites.

    The poignant “Oh Bully” is based on the true story of an eleven year old “beautiful boy with an easy smile." In the chorus, Linq sings, “Oh bully what have you done / Said you and your gang were just having fun.” Each time those words come around, it becomes more poignant, ending with the boy’s funeral and the bullying gang having to live with the ghost they created. “Seneca Falls to Selma” is a thoughtful ballad about civil rights that draws from three important events in U.S. history. It’s one of those songs that leave the listener feeling stronger and ready to carry on with whatever work they’re doing. In “Patriarch (Apron Strings),” a smart woman gets bad advice from a man – a universal theme that could be applied to all women. Linq sings about class in “Pillow,” where an overheard conversation in an upscale hotel leaves her wondering about the refugee in a tent village who would treasure any pillow on any bed. The Tom Petty piece, “Two Gunslingers,” fits in well with Linq’s original songs, painting a vivid portrait of two fighters who decide to take control of their lives. There’s a classic rock feel in “Living on the Edge of Disaster,” about dwelling in the shadow of a nuclear reactor. Linq takes a more personal turn in “Whatever Happened,” musing about a lost relationship and making the hard realization that it was time to move on. In “Lady of the Night,” she sings compassionately about a prostitute who hopes that one of the men will “… make this wilted flower his own." June Millington`s electric guitar adds stabs of emotion. The last song, "Dusky Mellow," is a dreamy instrumental, perfect to end this many-flavored disc.

    Linq is a former pharmacist who saw Led Zeppelin on their first US tour and loves Joan Baez. She`s not a wide-eyed hippie in tie-dye cooing about love and daisies, though. Earlier recordings contain songs about the health care industry, queer diversity, war and other topics important to so many. Linq performs around New England and at selected gigs outside the region. She’s been the featured artist on several sites including Indiegrrl, Gay Guitarists Worldwide, GoGirlsMusic and more.

    Linq firmly believes that music is the most effective tool we have to bring people together, whether it`s the tragic tale of a sweet young man or a more personal contemplation of a lost relationship. It`s all here on her excellent new CD, Disconnect.

    As a former professional pharmacist turned prolific indie artist Boston's Linq offers a musical manifesto on the current hotbed societal issue of fixing the health care industry. Anyone who has been watching the debate unfold but has yet to grasp the breadth and depth of the problem and dire circumstances that often occur when patients seek medical attention in the United States - well, Rx and The Side Effects, the fourth full-length album from the modern folk rocker - is as good of a place to start as any to get a clear-eyed offering into all that has gone wrong with health care in America. By raising the clarion call on issues such as over-prescriptions, the uninsured, post-care poverty, the burden of coverage and a variety of drug related crimes - the ten songs on Linq's sixth overall release reveal an intelligent and insightful artist with a conscience who speaks out on the issues. Presented in singer-songwriter format Linq will often mix it up to include Blues, R&B and techno strains with her dominant folk delivery and the results are most effective on the anthemic "Prescription Chaos" and the rockin' "Side Effects". While Linq may not have a solution or a cure for the ills of the health care industry - she does have a diagnosis - and it doesn't look too good. Maybe a dose of these good songs from Linq are the only injection the industry needs to get itself healed once and for all.

    CD RELEASE- RX AND THE SIDE EFFECTS: New England sensation Linq is back with a new CD. In Rx and The Side Effects, ex-pharmacist Linq, sings about the evils of prescription medicines on Prescription Chaos, Side Effects; an inside voice that we all might want to take note of. With a folky, fifties yet contemporary rock sound, Linq has gone where few will go.

    Money Today tells a heartfelt story of money and success, and Linq has the knack of story-telling in a moving and musical way. More stories of life and its atrocities on Tired, and Simple Woman. Get a box of tissues ladies or you won’t get through this collection. And as Linq prescribes, Take two CDs and call her in the morning.

  • August 2009:
    LIFE GOES ON Review: Linq is a little bit like the love baby of Barney and Melissa Etheridge, and I really don’t mean that in a derogatory way. If Linq played an outdoor festival and if my partner and I had kids, we would be out having a picnic dancing on the grass with our cute gaybies singing along. Yes, I said gaybies. How can you not love a song called “Diversity Dance?” Hooray for gays! Hooray for bisexuals! It doubles the dating pool! After all, a little dose of cheesiness isn’t always bad, is it?

    Take Glenn Danzig. He is one of the cheesiest guys ever, and he writes some of the cheesiest songs ever, and yet he is still able to make the biggest, hairiest metal heads sing along like twelve-year-old girls at a Jonas Brothers concert. The dude can rock, and part of what makes him rock is a certain element of ridiculous that also make his songs catchy. Linq has that same sort of catchiness, as well. Her songs have an addictive beat that makes them fun to listen to.

    Linq and her fellow musicians are a talented crew. They obviously play their instruments with love and conviction. Don’t let the small dose of silly chase you away. Most of the songs on Life Goes On are seriously good.

    As I mentioned before, Linq’s voice is a bit like Melissa Etheridge, and her music also follows the same kind of sound (with some kd Lang and maybe even a bit of Led Zeppelin in there as well, particularly on tracks like “SOS” and “Life Goes On”). It’s certainly “folk rock with a message” as her website states: Linq and her band take on everything from the Bush administration to the Patriot Act to deforestation. Frankly, I like her sound, I applaud her message(s), and I even like the slice of brie in there with it.

    Pop Making Sense
    by David Byrne with Tony Peregrin

    The sun beautifully reflecting over the water on the cover of Linq's third album, Life Goes On, perfectly suits the set's mood. It captures the assuring serenity of the harmonies on the title track's reprise and even catches a glimpse of the potential environmental loss as heard on the opener “Where Will the Wild Ones Go.” The out musician brings up the paranoia of big brother on “George Orwell Where Are You?,” then offers a fun introduction to queer sexuality on “Diversity Dance.” This one should be incorporated into high school and collegiate sociology curricula. Linq has a knack for harmonies and captivating choruses, like on “Will You Care” and “Ode to the Butterworth Boys.” But it is the repetition of Linq singing “life goes on” throughout the reprise that I want to play on repeat for all perpetual pessimists and overreacting drama queens, so they can put life's curveballs into perspective. The Massachusetts-based Linq provides sound advice in her storytelling and makes the listener think about global consequences while harmonies melt over her folk-pop sound.

  • LIFE GOES ON Review:

    By Jennifer Layton, March 7, 2009

    As an indie music writer, I feel seriously outclassed here. Linq has no business being on an indie site. She should be opening for Bob Dylan. Or Joni Mitchell. Janis Ian would love her too. It’s not just Linq’s talent that puts her on this level. As a protest folk singer/songwriter and activist, she somehow manages to avoid the “Everything Sucks” sub-genre that so many indie protest folkies fall into.

    “Change the Picture”, the second track on this CD, is a perfect example. Linq doesn’t just protest racism and homophobia. She tries to whip up positive change. While reminding us that “nobody’s born a racist, nobody’s born a homophobe,” she suggests that we start more conversations and set better examples for kids.

    She also switches gears and uses humor to diffuse a touchy subject. Take “Diversity Dance,” a song about the disadvantages to borrowing against your 401(k). Kidding. It’s about diversity, and it features great lyrics like:

    You can dance if you’re straight
    You can dance if you’re gay
    Transsexual too
    And bisexuality is cool
    It doubles the dating pool ...

    See? Funny and on-target, as well as a great explanation for why my love life is so quiet. I’ve been limiting my options. Who knew?

    Still, Linq provides bite when she has to, and it’s a powerful thing. The opening track, “Where Will the Wild Ones Go”, is quiet musing over the destruction of nature in order to build more shopping malls. Right away, I thought of the increase of deer in my neighborhood. The wooded areas in my part of town are being torn down to build more hotels, and suddenly deer are showing up in residential neighborhoods, attacking people in their yards. I came face to face with a doe while taking my morning walk a few months ago. I thought about that a lot during this song, which means it was only track one, and Linq was already proving how good she is.

    Other standouts include “Route 32 Blues” with its great live feel. Nice to know Linq can take a break from the big social issues to notice the little things, like that thumping sound from the flat tire that’s been rolling over the past seventeen miles. “George Orwell Where Are You” is a clever, mysteriously-rapped message that will have you closing the drapes, turning off your computer, and wrapping tinfoil around your head.

    My favorite is the title track. It starts with a mystical sound, like the wind over the mountains. Then, suddenly, stunningly glorious harmonies open the track. It’s a beautiful, powerful way to open the song. Picture me giving a standing ovation to vocalists June Millington, Jean Millington (they’re twins, right?), Lee Madeloni, NaiaKete, and Joy Conz. The tempo matches the ebb and flow of life, which is the point of the song.

    Until the rest of the world catches on, I’ll just be grateful that Linq stopped by our little indie site. And I’ll keep this CD as proof that I knew the deal long before the majors did.

    “Life Goes On”

    Back when the Vermont Guardian was still a going concern, we received a solo album by one of THE stars of 1970s/1980s women's music, Cris Williamson. The sentiments expressed on that disc were as I would have expected, from reading articles and interviews. So what was most striking was the care with which the record was made. Unfortunately, it arrived after what would have been my deadline, and I was unable to write up Williamson or her CD. But Williamson, by that time, was both a veteran and a star of women's music; and she could have dashed off a record, and fans still would have loved it. Be that as it may, it was readily apparent that, in addition to doing her part to save the world and expressing her views directly on a variety of topics, Williamson placed making the best music she could on a very high priority.

    “Life Goes On” by Linq is in a somewhat similar vein.

    Save the world? Check.

    Put my thoughts out there for all to hear? Check.

    Make a great sounding CD? You bet!

    Things have been more than a little ragged around here since “Life Goes On” arrived, and I have not been able to give the record multiple plays nor take notes. But I can say that I have suggested her Track 7, “George Orwell Where Are You”, as apropos and excellent intro/outro music for a national radio talk show featuring one of my favorite hosts. I'd love to see and hear it work out.

    And Linq's Track 1, “Where Will the Wild Ones Go,” has an effect that I was born to enjoy. The vocals have just the tiniest roughness to them, bringing about what we call a “live” sound? Carl Wilson of The Beach Boys spoke very favorably of a similar instrumental effect creating great musical tension. Then, on “Where Will the Wild Ones Go,” comes a fantastic Brian Wilsonian gush of harmony, which sets off against the prior vocals wonderfully. Tension and release: one of the greatest and most important effects of musical expression.

    So while I did not yet get a chance to give this disc all the plays it deserves, I did find a lot to like and went so far as to suggest a cut for consideration for national airplay.

    Great album. Linq fans are going to want it. ...

    Do check out Linq's “Life Goes On.” I plan to do the same, with the volume at a little higher setting next time.

    Well done.
