(NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ) – The recently renovated State Theater New Jersey presents acclaimed singer and award-winning Broadway star Linda Eder live in concert on Sunday, January 22 at 7:00 p.m. Tickets range from $29 to $69.

One of the most versatile voices, Linda Eder is a best-selling artist with 18 solo albums whose diverse repertoire spans Broadway, standards, pop, country and jazz.

Born in Tucson, AZ and raised in Brainerd, MN, Eder began her singing career right out of high school throughout her home state. Eder eventually landed a gig at Harrah’s Casino in Atlantic City, but it was her performance on the 1987 season of Star Search, where she won 12 straight weeks, that caught the attention of audiences and record labels alike.

Eder launched her recording career in 1991 with her self-titled debut album and soon established herself as a interpreter of pop, standard and theatrical genres. After releasing two more solo albums, she made her Broadway debut in the production of Jekyll & Hyde, which earned her a Drama Desk nomination. As the tragic character “Lucy” in this new musical, Eder blew up the roof of New York’s Plymouth Theater eight times a week while belting out her signature songs “Someone Like You” and “A New Life.”

After leaving Broadway, Eder’s recording career continued with 18 solo recordings and numerous musical recordings. For many years she focused primarily on Broadway, standard and pop music. In 2013, Eder founded her own record company, Tressamail, Inc., and in the same year she released her first recording on the Christmas Where You Are label.
