Circe Link announces the release of her 6th album titled California Kid. The album is being released through Blackwings Multimedia label and will available for sales through CD Baby, iTunes and Amazon.com on September 14th 2010.
Genre hopping and prolific songstress Circe Link marshaled her Discount Candy Family Band into to Stagg Street Studios to record California Kid, a collection of songs that are at once charming and familiarly quirky. This album was influenced in part by the tones and style of Sheryl Crow, Derek Trucks, Margo Guryan, Tom Petty and The Band, drawing from a distinctly earthy approach and leans toward the guitar-driven melodies of Christian Nesmith and Bart Ryan. Throw Circe’s vocal into the mix with some lovely harmonies and see why California Kid will captivate fans ranging from country, pop and rock audiences.
With 6 studio records to date and over 70 songs in her catalog, Circe Link has proven her strengths and success as one of L.A.’s most loved independent artists.
“…Circe Link has an incredible voice, and a sound that has perfected what Norah Jones started. She has a definite future in several markets, including AAA, Easy Listening and Americana. You should definitely give a listen to this artist. Regardless of personal musical preference, she has something for everyone.” – Bob Leggett
