Linda Tillery on Olivia Records archival materials

Biography: Linda Tillery is an American singer and percussionist from San Francisco. Tillery first came to prominence as the lead singer in San Francisco group The Loading Zone in 1968-69. After that group split in 1970 she recorded her debut album for CBS Records, and worked as a studio musician through much of the 1970s, playing drums on albums by Santana, Mary Watkins, and Teresa Trull. She became a producer and staff artist at Olivia Records late in the decade, and released a second full-length on the label in 1978. Her association with Olivia led her into the genre of women's music; she has collaborated with June Millington, Deirdre McCalla, Barbara Higbie, Holly Near, and Margie Adam, as well as with pop musicians like Kenny Loggins, Huey Lewis, and Bobby McFerrin. In the 1990s she began exploring African music, forming the group Cultural Heritage Choir. She also plays with her own band Skin Tight, a jazz/blues outfit.
