Linda Waterfall is an American folk musician and singer-songwriter. She has recorded since 1977. In 2015 she released her 14th album, Hometown Girl (Franklin Point Music).


Waterfall grew up in northern Illinois and began studying piano at the age of eight. Her parents (both musicians) discouraged her from a musical career. She graduated from Stanford University in 1971 with a degree in visual art.

Despite her parents' advice, she began a career in music. She moved to Seattle, Washington, in 1975 and has toured nationally since 1983. [1]

In the 1960s, she spent several years as a student of Baba Hari Dass and also studied Transcendental Meditation. She is a breast cancer survivor.[2]
