Angels At Your Feet

Linda Geleris

With her new (third) solo CD, Linda Geleris aims to entertain you AND boost your faith using her God-given gifts; catchy songs with biblically inspired, thoughtful lyrics.

Linda Geleris Linda Geleris is a tall sunny extrovert. A few years ago she took a personality test, (and passed!) Although she does not aspire to higher office, three US presidents have her same exact personality type.

Growing up in New York, Linda was the carefree, creative "middle child" of a practical immigrant mother and a buttoned-down accountant father. It was a happy and secure upbringing, filled with love, nightly family dinners and healthy limits.
The best days of her youth and adolescence were spent glued to the radio, practicing Chopin on Grandma's Baldwin upright, singing in bands, playing guitar and writing songs.

For 20 years, Linda has been an active member of the greater Los Angeles performing and songwriting scene. Her song "Call Me Crazy" opens a Columbia TriStar film. Seeking more film and TV placements for her music, she recently signed a multi-song deal.

Recently, Linda has been working on a brand-new CD! The season of recording in Nashville and around Los Angeles coincided with a very busy and beautiful season of family milestones. THAT ALBUM IS FINALLY HERE! It's called "Angels At Your Feet." Get your copy now at www.lindageleris.com or at cdbaby.com

South of Mainstream
Review: "Lyrically, Linda is a gifted lady. As is very important in folk and folk-based songs, her lyrics tell stories. Her use and choice of words is imaginative and vibrant."

Discoveries Magazine Charles Donovan
Review: "Amongst these soon-to-be names is Linda Geleris, whose Sweet Eleven [from her album "If I Only Had a Minute"] is an insightful examination of a parent's desire to trap a moment in amber, and never relinquish it. Its understated intelligence and musicality recall the best of Beth Nielsen Chapman and Mary Chapin Carpenter." - See more at: http://lindageleris.com

If I Only Had a Minute

Linda Geleris

AAA soft rock with imaginative, strong lyrics, catchy melodies and generous portions of wit, wonder, wisdom and humor.

Linda Geleris demonstrates depth, imagination and musical versatility in her sophomore release “If I Only Had a Minute.” There are songs about longing, leavin’, lovin’, living and lamenting the loss of departed friends and family members. The mood swings from serious to sweet, and from sorrow to sublimely silly. You will find good ‘old fashioned rock and roll,' a tender ballad, a country song (“Naked”) and even an ode (to “Art Garfunkel’s Hair.”)

“My Version of You” is about her immigrant mother, who arrived on American soil as a teenager during the late 50s. With little information from her ‘proper’ mom, Linda uses her ripe imagination to ‘create’ her own version of what her mother might have been like at that age, in those “Happy Days,” “James Dean” times.

“Close to My Limit of You” is a bluesy rocker, which was Linda’s musical answer to an insensitive remark. She parallels in song the sentiments in the movie “I Love You to Death” in which Tracy Ullman inadvertently saves her husband’s life by lacing his spaghetti with sleeping pills before shooting him. His circulatory system slows down just enough to prevent the sudden fatal loss of blood. Oh the joys of humorous, non-lethal retaliation in song!

Sweet Eleven crystallizes the bittersweet moment in time when a parent realizes that their ‘little one’ is entering new territory. The epiphany occurs as mother and child sit “indian-style on the bedroom floor in a pile of childhood treasures” suspended, if you will, between the innocence of grammar school and the wonder of the ‘tween years. The milestone significance of the moment is realized amid the otherwise mundane tasks in the second verse:

"I stack up the clothes that have grown too small As we talk of homework and basketball Could be any old moment from a thousand days But the tug in my heart tells me different This is Sweet Eleven."

This recording is probably the only time you will hear the song without a broken voice by the time the line “I miss you already and you’re not even gone” rolls around in the last verse.
