Linda Ellen Brown-Trinckes

John and Linda Trinckes met just over a year after both of them lost loved ones who passed on. After raising children, working to pay the bills and taking care of others who were seriously ill, they had both put their talents and dreams on hold. John taught music for 38 years, but had always wanted to write original music. Linda wrote poetry and sang, but never pursued songwriting, or sang much in public. Immediately after they met, they began singing together. Now, they have over 100 original songs, many albums or EPs, and a musical. They primarily write smooth jazz and easy listening songs, but have written in several genres, some cross genres and fit in 2 or 3, but are totally unique. Linda writes the lyrics and then John composes the music inspired by the words Linda has written. They record at home; John plays all the instruments and tracks. Linda is the featured singer. Their music is published through CDBaby and distributed to all the major distributors. Sincerely yours, John and Linda Trinckes [email protected]
