WOMEN ON THE MOVE TRIO
JOAN ENGUITA WILLINGHAM
Joan, formerly Joan Enguita, has been known for her vocals in the Los Angeles area since 2000 when she first stepped on the stage at Kulak's Woodshed in North Hollywood. She finds that her original songs touch folks when she sees them nod or touch the arm of their neighbor during her performances. She grew up in a U.S. military family and lived nearly half her childhood in France and Spain. As a young mom, she spent a year in the Philippines. Joan studied classical guitar with Jeffrey Van at the University of Minnesota and kept some of those guitar patterns for use in her own songs.
Joan traveled to Ireland, Denmark and Germany to further her musical endeavors, and her CD, TWO SUITCASES, has had airplay there. Live radio in Germany took place at midnight on Radio Free with host Fredrich Hog. You know you are in Germany when there is a beer dispenser in the break room! After a radio performance at KCSN, she met John McEuen, of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, which resulted in her CD getting airplay on his XM Radio show. Joan won a $2500 prize in the "Music from Home" competition by Ritter Ranch, and Honorable Mention in the Billboard Country category for her song, ONE GOOD MAN.
NEWS: We are thrilled to announce that a portion of Joan's song QUEEN OF THE RADIO will be a featured in an upcoming documentary about cowboy singer Don Edwards. The piece plays during an interview with Don's wife.
Linda grew up in New York, but has been a long-time resident of Glendora, CA. With a smoky voice, easy rock beat and catchy hooks, Linda writes unique and honest songs spanning a broad range of subjects and emotions. For 20 years, Linda has been an active member of the greater Los Angeles performing and songwriting scene. Her song CALL ME CRAZY opens a Columbia TriStar film. And IF I ONLY HAD A MINUTE is full of imagination, depth, warmth and humor. Seeking more film and TV placements for her music, she recently signed a multi-song deal with a publishing company in New York. She is the original founder of SongNet, a networking organization that seeks to encourage and promote Los Angeles area songwriters. Trips to Nashville over the past few years have borne fruit in a new solo CD release.
Trish has been playing the guitar and performing since her days on a U.S. Army base in South Korea. She performed with a trio even then. Harmonies are her forte and she quickly adds just the right touch. Her song PLYMOUTH BELVEDERE was selected for National Public Radio airplay on the "Car Talk" show. Trish's song THANK A SOLDIER is a favorite at patriotic events, and graces numerous patriotic Websites. She has a heartwarming and comforting folk style (In fact, Joan likes to call Trish "John Denver's long-lost sister"). Her song, IT'S JUST A COOKIE, is a fan favorite and folks often request it, smiling and singing along.
