Southern California native Jeff Linsky discovered the guitar at the age of ten. Although primarily a self-taught musician, he did study briefly with both Spanish guitar virtuoso Vicente Gomez and jazz guitar great Joe Pass. While still in his teens, Jeff began traveling the world as a touring musician, eventually signing with Concord Jazz. Known for his polyphonic improvisation on the nylon string guitar, Linsky’s recordings for Concord (and other labels) have featured such notable band mates as Steve Kujala, Luis Conte, Alex Acuna, Alphonso Johnson, Jennifer Leitham, Barnaby Finch, Karl Perazzo and Michael Spiro. As an award winning composer, Jeff’s music has been featured internationally in film and television, including as the broadcast theme for the Monterey Jazz Festival.

When Lisa Linsky was four years old, she discovered an old upright piano, buried in the cluttered family garage. Upon playing her first few notes, Lisa immediately felt a connection with the instrument - a connection shared with her grandmother and great grandmother, who were both accomplished concert pianists. However, Lisa’s music studies had to share time with her career as a child actress in Hollywood. Young Lisa was featured in numerous commercials and also appeared in movies, alongside of such notable actors as Robert DeNiro, Shelley Winters and Bruce Dern. One of Lisa's fondest childhood memories is of playing the piano with actor Jack Lemmon on the set of "The Fortune Cookie", in which Lisa played the role of Walter Matthau's daughter. Although family friend and celebrated composer Henry Mancini had recommended Lisa to attend the Juilliard School of Music, after her acting career, Lisa chose to focus on raising a family. For several years, the piano remained Lisa's private sanctuary, while she raised her six children. It wasn’t until her children were grown, along with the encouragement of her award-winning composer and recording artist husband Jeff Linsky, that Lisa began sharing her music with the world - and the response has been overwhelmingly positive.
“Angels Among Us by Lisa Linsky is an album any serious fan of the solo piano genre must have at all costs, a full flowing and passionate tale, told by a pianist who is truly in touch with her musical muse.”
