Self proclaimed, “Jackass Of All Trades,” Linda Chorney was born before the war, started singing as a fetus, received a standing ovation in the delivery room and has been singing ever since.

In 2015 she has become a filmmaker, and will release her first documentary, “The Opening Act”. (Does it pay to play?) She will know more about the release date, if it miraculously gets into a couple of film festivals, before she goes broke paying submission fees.

As of the year 2011, she had released 6 CD’s, and 3 cassettes, and has won a total of 0 Grammy’s. She has performed on all seven continents, but only one planet. Her goal is to get 1 Grammy and sing on 2 planets.

In 2012 Chorney made history by being the first completely independent artist without a manager, label, or publicist to be nominated for a Grammy for “Best Americana Album” in the 54th Annual Grammy Awards. This category has nominated such legends as Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson, and Robert Plant, to name drop a few. Her fellow nominees were Lucinda Williams, Levon Helm, (RIP), Emmylou Harris, and Ry Cooder, sharing 24 Grammys between them. Linda still holds her record at zero!

Highlights in her career thus far have been posing on the red carpet with one of her favorite musicians, Gregg Allman, having the honor of losing the Grammy to the late great Levon Helm, opening for a bunch of famous people, single-handedly pissing off the entire Americana Association, singing the National Anthem at Fenway Park for the 100 Year Anniversary, breaking the Top 40 Adult Contemporary Charts, and singing for Nelson Mandela, in front of a crowd of 250,000 humans. And of course playing in Sports bars where no one is listening.

She likes to refer to herself as “she” when she is writing stuff like this. Linda released her first book, in 2014, “Who The F**K is Linda Chorney”. It is a backstage pass to what it was like to be nominated as an outsider to the Grammys, and the life of a working musician.

At least I got there once!

At least I got there once!

She has also written two autobiographical books. She plans to release them after the newest one sells a million billion copies. As her songs are mini-stories of her life, she decided to write the experiences behind the songs filled with her adventures around the world, and her dysfunctional relationships. Sounds quite self-absorbed, wouldn’t you say?

Just because it happened to you, doesn’t make it interesting, but sometimes, putting it to music does. Perhaps she will sing her books, too.

Her new goal is to make her latest book into a movie, star in it, and win an Oscar.

Currently, Linda is recording and co-writing for her next album with such prestigious musicians as Rich Pagano, Steve Postel, Ed Roth, and SNL musical director, Leon Pendarvis.

She released her single “When I Sing,” which is one of the tracks. She will also be covering her favorite Allman Brother’s tune with him, “Dreams”.

And now about the dream album!



Emotional Jukebox from Linda Chorney Direct

Emotional Jukebox on CD Baby

Emotional Jukebox on ITunes

What a privilege! What a cast of stars!  And this is the first album where I have covered a few songs from some of my hero’s that influenced me. Beatles, Stones, Zeppelin, and CSN. I was even lucky enough to get Lisa Fischer from the Rolling Stones to record on many of the songs, along with a cast of Grammy winning slamming Superstars like Will Lee, Shawn Pelton, Jeff Pevar, Bashiri Johnson, Leon Pendarvis, Andy Burton, Hernan Romero, Arlan Feiles, Ralph Notaro, Chris Tedesco, and Frank Wolf Engineering. Topped of by mastering genius Fred Kavorkian.

The album is designed to start as you wake, then rather than getting out of bed, you think about your entire life to this very moment, then fall in love, dance around, then feel old, then go to a dark place, then try to snap out of it, then get the blues, and then die. Yippy. Sounds like fun, n’est pas? Come pack your emotional suitcases and take the journey with me!
