Not really news, since this lady was announced as the band's singer at the beginning of the month:" rel="nofollow - , but although a few members have mentioned this in posts within other threads recently, I didn't find a dedicated thread for this announcement anywhere on the site, and I feel that it most definitely warrants one.

From the website (link above):

IOEarth have confirmed Linda Odinsen as their new singer, after they" rel="nofollow - - Celebr8.2 festival on May 11-12. Cureton says: “We can’t wait to get on stage. I’d like to thank all our wonderful fans for sticking with us through this difficult time. Rest assured IOEarth are firing on all cylinders.”

Here she is performing with them at  Cultuurpodium Boerderij in Zoetermeer (The Netherlands) on April 13, 2013 - a three-band festival with IO Earth, Panic Room & Heather Findlay Band.
Full concert at 'Cruise To The Edge' March 27th, 2013:" rel="nofollow -" rel="nofollow -

Well, IoEarth are one of the foremost of modern prog bands, IMO. Just see my reviews to get a flavour of how highly I rate them. 

Claire was a big part of that for me, so I earnestly hope that Linda can step up to the plate. I will watch the videos now to get a better idea, so thanks for posting David.


In Lazland, life is transient. Prog is permanent.

  I am also a huge fan, IO Earth's two discs are modern prog masterpieces! When I am approached by prog-ignorant music fans, I always hand them these 2 discs and they return completely stunned! I have little doubt that they will be the next big thing in prog........Welcome Linda

Apparently this lady needed just a four hour rehersal before the 'Cruise To The Edge' gig, and if so then I think the future of the band is pretty secure with her out front. This takes nothing whatsoever away from Claire, who was also a superb front lady, so here are three vids that feature her, as a tribute to her wonderful contribution to a really excellent band:
'Harmonix' Live @ Summers End 2009:
'Live Your Life Pt1 & Pt2' @ The Peel 02.11.12
'Come With Me' @ The Peel July 2010
Lots more tubes from IOEarth on their official YouTube channel:" rel="nofollow -

It's interesting, at the IOEarth "Storytellers" session on CTTE there was mention that Linda was still in school (grad school, I can only assume!) and didn't have any particular plans for a future in music.  Guess she changed her mind on that front!  (I think there was a comment "school can wait!")

For all who continue to be amazed at her performance after only four hours of rehearsals, it must be said that she did "sit in" for Claire at some shows a few years ago when Claire was pregnant.  Still, amazing.
