I saw a post on Facebook today announcing that the wonderful Linnea Olsson‘s album was released worldwide.
“My latest album BREAKING AND SHAKING is now out WORLDWIDE!!! LISTEN, SHARE, DREAM, DANCE♥ “ was the exact wording.

I still cannot understand why the record companies cannot release worldwide on the first go round. With the internet and streaming music it makes no sense.

And it reminded me that I had not listened to her lately, and that is a crime. Linnea was featured on the old blog a few years back, link at the bottom of this post.

Linnea Olsson is a very talented cello playing singer / songwriter.
You only have to listen to a couple of her songs to realize just how talented she is.

Did I mention she is cute?

Anyway, let’s get to the music.

With a thumping bass line and a wonderful voice you just have to enjoy this brilliant track. The title track from the recently released album by Linnea Olsson.

Having no musical talent myself, but once trying to learn the piano I got pretty good with one hand. But then came the moment when the other hand came into play and my musical career ended. Now check out this video, two hands doing different things and add a beautiful voice to the equation. How can the human mind handle such stuff?
This is a wonderful song, beautifully sung. And the cello is sublime. This was a performance on a TV show Go’Kväll at SVT in Sweden.

Yet another gem of a song, think of a sigh of bliss when saying the title. I could never convey to the reader the pure joy of listening to this young ladies cello playing, and don’t forget her sublime voice.
Ah!
