Linman is currently lead vocalist for One Desire, their self-titled debut album released on 24 March 2017 on Frontiers Records. He was recruited to join the band in 2013. Of the band, Linman says "Musically, the band draws influences from classic rock bands like Journey, Toto, and Def Leppard, but also lots of heavier, more modern bands. Our sound is very melodic, slightly pop-ish at times, but still based on a heavy rock sound."[2] Other members of One Desire are Jonas Kuhlberg (bass guitar), Jimmy Westerlund (guitars) and Ossi Sivula (drums). [3]

To promote their self-titled debut album, One Desire appeared on day 1 of the Frontiers Rock Festival IV held in Trezzo (Milano), Italy, 29-30 March 2017. [4] Following this a 15-date tour commencing in Finland on 13 April and concluding in Germany on May 6 was scheduled.[5]
