With Fall Just around the corner, New York singer/songwriter Linda Draper is gearing up for a slew of live dates as part of her “No Frills” tour – making stops in various cities (some for the first time). In further celebration, Draper has hand picked and compiled an amazing Limited Edition 10 track “No Frills” CD, which collects her favorite songs from her first three long out of print LPs, which was produced by NYC icon Kramer (Galaxie 500, Low, Ween, etc).
"Quietly and methodically, New York songwriter Linda Draper has climbed into the ranks of the elite".-Lucid Culture.
In 2001, Linda Draper recorded her debut LP “Ricochet” with producer/indie music icon Kramer (Low, Ween, Galaxie 500, Urge Overkill, Lou Reed). Their partnership would continue with her next three Long Players: 2002’s “Snow White Trash Girl,” 2003’s “Patchwork,” her debut LP with Planting Seeds Records’ “One Two Three Four”. In 2007 she co-produced her next LP “Keepsake” with Major Matt Mason. In 2009, Draper returned with her third Planting Seeds Records album, (her 6th LP overall), called "Bridge and Tunnel", produced by Brad Albetta (Martha Wainwright, Teddy Thompson).
