Lorie Line


Lorie grew up in Reno, Nevada and was born with "perfect pitch." She has been playing the piano since age 5 and as a child prodigy, she won many annual Statewide piano competitions. Classically trained, she graduated from the University of Nevada, Reno with a BA in Music, Piano Performance. In 1986, she married Tim Line, moved to Minneapolis and landed the perfect job, serenading shoppers at the piano for Dayton's department stores. It was from here that Midwestern fans took notice of her musical talent and style and her career took off. Since then, she has recorded 46 CDs and has published 43 books of music. She has sold 6 million albums and has toured the United States for 25 consecutive years, performing on over 2000 stages. Lorie has never taken one business course, but may own one of the largest independent labels in the world. She continues to be the hardest working woman in show biz, touring and performing in 80 cities each year.
John Ondrasik/Five For Fighting: "Actually, it's the opposite. 'Superman' gave me a free shot, and I'm taking it."

Over the years, Lorie has produced three television specials for PBS. She has played (and cooked) for Congressmen, Senators and Governors. She has performed for two Presidents at the White House. She orchestrates and writes every note for her shows and has published over 500 arrangements for the piano and multiple accompaniment instruments. In 2002, she was Entrepreneur of the Year for Ernst & Young. Her grass roots story has been published in hundreds of news articles and her beautiful home has been featured in numerous national magazines. Her dresses have been showcased in museums and she may own one of the largest private costume collections in the country.

She has been married for 28 years to her business partner, Tim (alias Santa) and over the years they have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for charities. They have two adult children and are now empty nesters.
