Linda SeptienWelcome to Local Music ‘Mericans, where we get to know the people behind the scenes.
In 1984, Linda Septien was performing opera in Italy. Inspired, she flew to Nashville to do her own recordings.
“You suck,” the producer told her. “You have no feeling at all.”
She put the brakes on and decided to spend the next two years of her life learning about modern entertainment. Three hundred concerts and a ton of research later, she became quite the vocal coach.
Now CEO of the Septien Group, an Addison facility handling music instruction, a couple small labels and artist development, she’s coached DFW natives like Ryan Cabrera, Chomsky, Forever the Sickest Kids and Jessica Simpson. Add to that list Demi Lovato, Selena Gomez, Destiny’s Child, half a dozen American Idol finalists, three Broadway performers and a handful of child stars, and we’re just scratching the surface.
