qualified luthier in the construction of Harps, guitars and other stringed instruments, Linda Coogan is both an extraordinary
singer-songwriter and a consummate musician. Gifted with a voice of rare depth and sensuality this multi-instrumentalist (guitar,
harmonica, mandolin, bouzouki, and bodhran) has now released her long-awaited debut album, "Holding back.
Linda's raw smoky vocals, have been compared to Tori Amos meets Jewel and
Tracy Chapman. And who can argue with that kind of comparison? the female Tom Waits even, but enough with the
comparisons.....Coogan possesses an undeniable originality that exceeds her peer group. Her unique sounding debut album was
recorded, in the true folk fashion, of less than a week.!!!
