Being surrounded by a strong musical legacy was always an inspiration for Linnea Salte. Her father (Arlen Salte) sold over a 1/4 million albums, owned an independent record label, and was the visionary of a creative arts conference called Break Forth.
Through the guidance of her father; Linnea’s fascination for music continued to grow. An avid songwriter, Linnea started writing and playing piano at the age of three. She went on to be trained through Suzuki and the Royal Conservatory of Canada in both piano and voice. As her passion for music grew she began to teach both piano and voice at the Sherwood Park School of Music. Linnea also started traveling extensively through North America as a musician and road manager. Her obsession to grow as a musician lead her to Vanguard College where she took her BA in Theology with Music Major and went on to be one of the worship leaders at Bethel Lutheran Church in Sherwood Park, AB.
But over time Linnea’s heart began to transform to a desire for her music to reach even more people. So after lending her voice to over ten albums Linnea began making plans to release her solo, debut album. Over the next few years she took a deeper interest in developing her craft and had the honor of writing with songwriters like Carolyn Arends and Gayle Salmond. But even through all the training she remained focused on her goal to impact the world around her. She says, “I want the songs that I write to challenge and excite people. For me, music is just a doorway to see my world changed.”
The songs on her debut album show a depth of spiritual maturity as it deals with issues like humanity in Pockets Full Of Posies, the brevity of life in Alone and the gift of grace in the song Hallelujah. Linnea says, “This album is very vulnerable . . . I write about what is at the core of my heart.”
Linnea Salte’s album release will be followed by a tour with Beautiful Unique Girl with over 150 events across North America.
