Circe Link will entice, delight and treat you to a sound she says comes from her “cosmic radio station”. A native of Los Angeles, Circe was a self-taught fine artist before waking one morning from a dream with a song in her head. While never having written a song before she penned three songs that day and discovered a new artistic path. Originally calling her music Cowboy Jazz, Circe soon found there was so much more to her eclectic style. Circe’s records range in genre and sound from Bob Wills to Bowie, from Patti Page to Patty Smith – essentially from Abba to Zappa and everything in between. This broad diversity has yielded her a collection of songs that are at once charming and familiar, yet surprising and unique, often leaving melodies stuck in the listener’s head for days.
With 9 records and over 90+ songs in her catalog, an Amoeba Records Homegrown Artist pick, the #1 spot in Jazz on Garageband.com for over two years, a Clear Channel ”Emerging Artists” pick, film and TV placements credits that include Starbucks, Hanes, Blades of Glory, School of Rock, Bittersweet, and The Hills Have Eyes among others, a successful tour in Japan, and singing back up for The Monkees, Circe Link has proven her strengths and success as one of L.A.’s most unique independent artists.
