Linda Gail Lewis and brother Jerry Lee grew up in Ferriday, Louisiana along with cousins Jimmy Swaggart and Mickey Gilley . Most of their colourful, but poverty stricken childhood was spent in their home town church built by members of the family. Their first musical experiences were right there at "Ferriday First Assembly of God" where Jerry and Linda sang, moving toward what would be their life long career in music. I've been in the music business my whole life, " says Linda. "I went into Sun recording studio (Memphis) with my brother for the first time when I was 12 years old and went out on the road with him when I was 14." Eventually, Jerry Lee and Linda Gail did in fact join forces in the early 70's creating a duet album entitled, "Together", which launched a top 10 hit with their Mercury/Smash single, "Don't Let Me Cross Over". From there she went on her own to pursue her own dreams and visions in an effort to step out of the shadow of her famed brother. Linda has had an interesting recording career, on Sun, Smash and Mercury with Jerry (highlight being the 1969 Together lp on Smash, great rockiní Roll Over Beethoven duet). Her recent solo career deserves far more attention than given here. She's a great solo live performer doing the incomparable Lewis Boogie in the Lewis way. Her many European fans and friends get rightly mentioned.
Linda earned her spurs in front of the demanding Jerry Lee fans at the great Lewis fan club conventions.
At this moment Linda is performing all over Europe.
As well for a Country & Western as a Rockabilly festival, Linda has a seperate show, backed up by Englands number one Rockabilly band The Firebirds
