About Lorie

Celebrating 29 years of touring

Lorie Line was recently inducted into the Minnesota Music Hall of Fame. She joins the ranks with Bob Dylan, Prince and Judy Garland. 

Lorie grew up in Reno, Nevada and has been playing the piano since age 5. 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, Lorie has recorded over 50 CDs and has published over 50 books of music. She has sold 6 million albums and may very well be the most published composer/arranger in our lifetime. Lorie has thousands of active Lorie Line Radio listeners on Pandora and her music "spins" almost two million times a week. She has toured the United States for 29 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 60 to 80 concerts each year.

Over the years, Lorie has produced two television specials for PBS. She has played (and cooked) for Congressmen, Senators and Governors. She has performed for two Presidents at the White House. 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 to her business partner, Tim (alias Santa) for 32 years.  Over the years they have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for charities. They are active gardeners and Lorie has been a member of the Wayzata Garden Club for 15 years.

Tim and Lorie have two adult children and are now empty nesters. They reside on Lake Minnetonka in Minnesota.
