New York, NY (September 9, 2021) – Honey Bun Records is proud to announce the release of international concert and recording artist Maxine Linehan’s new album, What Would Petula Do? A Tribute to Petula Clark. The album was recorded live at legendary Paris performance venue Théâtre Du Châtelet in front of a sold-out crowd of 2500 transfixed fans, capturing for all of eternity what became a legendary evening of song. What Would Petula Do? will be released on Friday, September 10, 2021.
In her wildly acclaimed solo concert, What Would Petula Do? A Tribute to Petula Clark, Linehan takes her audience on a musical journey exuberantly charting the course of Clark’s extraordinary career from her early, popular recordings in the 1940s, through her mega-stardom in the 1960s, to her award- winning performances in film and on Broadway right up to the 1990s. Backed by a world-class twelve-piece band with stunning orchestrations, this show has consistently moved audiences to tears and gotten them dancing in the aisles. During the incredible evening captured on this recording, the sold-out crowd gave Ms. Linehan three standing ovations, unwilling to let her leave the stage.
In the tradition set forth by Ms. Clark, Ms. Linehan performs the set in both French and English. She continues to tour the stage version of What Would Petula Do? across North America, Europe, and Australia.

An internationally acclaimed concert and recording artist, Linehan is an interpretive artist that uses popular songbooks and theatrical presentations to share intimate truths and build communal bonds. The Irish performer, singer, writer, producer, and actress fuses dialogue, autobiographical story arcs, and specific artist song collections for transformative concert experiences. Although Southern Vermont-based, Linehan performs in world famous venues around the globe, as well as intimate settings. Her repertoire is refreshingly eclectic – to date, she’s interpreted the songbooks of such varied artists as U2, Petula Clark, and Barbra Streisand.
Maxine’s first studio album, Beautiful Songs, was awarded a Top Ten pick by USA Today, and garnered rave reviews in The New York Times, Billboard, The Huffington Post, and others. Her acclaimed debut holiday album This Time If Year, was described by Forbes as “Lush and Mesmerizing’ and by The Irish Voice as “A Sonic Marvel!”
