Linda Gail Lewis is part of a musical royal family -- her older brother is rock & roll icon Jerry Lee Lewis, and country star Mickey Gilley and gospel artist Jimmy Swaggart are her cousins. While it took Linda Gail a while to gain an audience of her own, she proved in time she was a gifted pianist and singer in her own right, well versed in rockabilly and first-era rock & roll, vintage country, boogie-woogie, and Southern gospel. Guided by her brother, Linda Gail launched a career as singer in the early '60s, cutting records with him and singing with his road band. It wasn't until 1988 that Linda Gail truly stepped out on her own and began wowing fans of vintage roots rock with her own piano prowess. After cutting a handful of albums for small labels, Linda Gail stepped into the spotlight with 2000's You Win Again, an album she recorded in collaboration with Van Morrison. Since then, Linda Gail has been an in-demand act in the U.K. and Europe and has released a steady stream of albums highlighting her rollicking piano and impassioned vocals.
