She is one to watch in 2017."

was born in Santiago de Chile and later grew up in Hong Kong and Switzerland.

Her first love was Ballett. She started dancing at The Royal School of Ballett in Hong Kong at the age of six and was later forced to quit due to injuries.

Her dance training turned useful in her lead role as "Anita" in the musical "West Side Story", and she was shortly drawn to acting and dance again. Later she experimented with various styles, from funk and jazz to trip hop and electronic music and she performed and recorded with various bands and artists.

Following her passion for english poetry and prose she first studied English Literature at the University of Zürich but never finished and concentrated in songwriting instead.

Her debut album "All About Secrets" (HRP, Irascible) was released 2010. The single Paris Mon Rêve was on air on various radios including the big national radio stations such as Radio Suisse Romande, SRF 1, SRF 2 & Radio Virus. TV Appearances (SRG and Servus TV) followed.

Her second album Warrior Talk was recorded during a longer period between 2013 & 2015. After concerts in London she was signed to Aveline Records in London - Warrior Talk was distributed and released in the UK/Ireland and Switzerland.

The album was well received and enabled Linah to tour in Switzerland & the UK (with Gitta De Ridder and Rosemary & Garlic).

Her latest release Armour And The Universe is a spoken word album and was inciated by Steffen Aaskoven, a fan of Gigi Masin, after discovering the original "Love Letter" from her first album on YouTube.
