Linda Waterfall is a Seattle composer, songwriter and performer. Her songs reflect both classical training and many popular influences including folk, jazz, blues, rock and world music. Seattle Times critic Paul de Barros characterized her work as a “…Whitmanic embrace of the American panorama, mixing vernacular and highbrow culture, and everything in between.” Becky Bernson wrote in Folk Alliance Newsletter that Waterfall is “one of the finest fingerpicking guitar players alive on planet Earth today.”

Born and raised in Costa Rica, Dean Stevens combines an intricate, self-taught guitar style with a versatile and expressive singing voice. He learned Spanish at an early age, and absorbed the musical and cultural influences of Latin America. He performs a  wide spectrum of songs in English and Spanish. His own material includes personal songs and social topics, paints sketches of people, celebrates the Earth, and annoys the narrow minded. He travels frequently to Central America, and has become known for his humanitarian efforts on behalf of refugees returning to their homes in El Salvador and Guatemala.
