Note from Josh:

Linda and I are excited to perform my arrangements of familiar Christmas tunes for our friends, family, long time fans, and hopefully some new fans as well. The Blue Jay is one of our favorite places to play. It is intimate, cozy, warm and welcoming. The listening room highlights Linda's natural ability to capture every ear, and tell a captivating and authentic story. The band includes some of my favorite musicians and friends. We've been making music together for nearly 20 years, and it's both familiar and exciting to get on stage with this group to explore new possibilities. We hope to bring you the holiday melodies you know and love, but we also look forward to adding our own unique energy and color. 

It's the most wonderful time of year! It's a time for nostalgia, family traditions, & getting into the Christmas spirit. If you agree, then this show is for you. We look forward to seeing you.

~Joshua Bowlus


Linda Cole Bio by Scott Yanow:

Vocalist Linda Cole and pianist/arranger Joshua Bowlus both had substantial careers before they met, but it seems clear that their musical partnership is a new and exciting chapter in their careers. Their first official joint recording, What A Wonderful World, is proof of the musical magic that occurs whenever they perform together. Linda is a subtle but exciting singer with her own phrasing. She always seems to have a smile in her voice. “Linda has the ability to capture the room’s attention immediately,” says Joshua. “When she is on stage, the audience is excited to see what she will do next. Linda is really an authentic musician, she always swings, and she improvises and interacts with us as another instrument in the band. We always have a great conversation together on stage.” An excellent pianist, Joshua gets to excel as a writer whenever he teams up with Linda who says, “I think that Joshua is an amazing arranger. I come from such a diverse background vocally that I need someone who can work with me and arrange what we are doing together, right on the spot. Joshua is a master at that.”
