Linda de Bruijn -  Song Lyrics & Poems


Linda is a Dutch lyricist and poet, whose style flows from her love for nature and the people around her. Inspired by the little moments in life, her stories are real and come from the heart. She writes in Dutch as well as in English.

Based in a small green village in the south of The Netherlands she travels the world through books, film and music, collecting song seeds on every journey, to write lyrics that connect with other people.
Besides writing lyrics and poems, Linda creates black out poems, based on lyrics of songs she loves.



When the Sky Darkens is the first collaborative effort between Richard Libeton (music) and Linda de Bruijn (lyrics).
Having met through The Songwriting Academy in London, Linda's poem was the starting point for Richard's composition.

When the Sky Darkens is a 'I miss you' story and was originally written as a poem to reflect on the first lockdown in 2020.
With a few musical hints of Sylvian & Fripp, the song has a lovely, dreamy character.

Whenever rain is coming, songbirds stop singing. And when the rain stops falling, birds start singing again.
Released November 2022 and available on all major digital platforms such as Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon, Deezer, iHeart, SoundCloud, Pandora, etc.
