A RETROSPECTIVE OF TIMELESS SONGS

All of us here at Borealis are thrilled to welcome Linda to our family of artists.

Fifty Shades Of Red brings together 16 great songs taken from Linda’s four critically acclaimed solo albums – Rough Edges & Ragged Hearts, Cryin’ Out Loud, Carve It To The Heart and Flying Jenny.

Our pal Colin Linden summed it up perfectly…

“When all the trends fade and become dated, and all the music from the cutting edge becomes dull, Linda McRae will continue to stand tall, singing and playing music with honest soul and humility, cutting through the fog with her timeless clarity. Linda is one of the true, soulful pioneers of honest roots music. Her singing and playing brings honour to her heroes and to her friends and fans.”
