Linda Perry

Born on April 15, 1965, in Springfield, MA, Linda Perry spent her youth struggling with kidney disease and then addiction before focusing on music. Growing up in an artistic and musical household, the young Perry displayed a good share of musical talent and interest from an early age. During her teenage years, Perry floundered in school and tried unsuccessfully to form several bands in the San Diego area. A drug problem prevented the singer/guitarist from starting off her career at an early age, but after a few close calls and a move to San Fransisco in the late '80s, she cleaned up and began making some real artistic and professional gains. During this period, Perry discovered and refined her powerful singing voice. Part Grace Slick, part Johnnette Napolitano, but unique in her own right and a little quirky, it didn't take long before Perry's solo performances at various Bay Area nightclubs were attracting the attention of scenesters and fellow musicians. One such musician was Christa Hillhouse, who was in quest of a new lead vocalist for her group 4 Non Blondes. Hillhouse asked Perry to join up with her outfit, which also included Shauna Hall and Wanda Day. Perry agreed to give it a try and it wasn't long before 4 Non Blondes were being courted and eventually signed by Interscope Records. The group's debut, Bigger, Better, Faster, More, was released on Interscope in 1992. After a very slow start sales-wise, the David Tickle-produced album began to break in 1993 when a modern rock disc jockey in Las Vegas began spinning "What's Up?" Interscope then began pushing the song, which had by this time developed a life of its own. A video was produced and MTV took an immediate and prolonged shine it, giving the band massive exposure. As "What's Up?" became a huge international hit, 4 Non Blondes seemed to be everywhere. During a period of about two years, Perry and her bandmates appeared on the Airheads and Wayne's World 2 soundtracks, released two more singles and accompanying videos (for "Spaceman" and "Dear Mr. President"), toured the globe, appeared on Carpenters and Led Zeppelin tribute releases, and finally appeared on Roger Daltrey's televised 50th birthday party, which ended up being their final performance. While working on their follow-up to the six-million-unit-selling Bigger, Better, Faster, More, Perry left the group due to personal problems within the band. After departing 4 Non Blondes, Perry began work on some solo material and formed her own label, Rockstar Records, which later signed Stone Fox and 2 Lane Blacktop. Perry also began a producing and session career by joining Stone Fox in the studio and helping out on former Bangle Susanna Hoffs' self-titled solo disc. Perry herself was joined by the likes of Grace Slick, Lisa Germano, and Sheryl Crow producer Bill Bottrell on In Flight, her 1996 solo debut. Darker, and more dynamic than her work with 4 Non Blondes, Perry came into her own as an artist on this exceptional recording. Released on Interscope, In Flight was perhaps too dour or sincere to capitalize on the alt-pop success of 4 Non Blondes and the record was hardly noticed by critics, radio, or fans. After In Flight, Perry moved to Southern California and continued working on production and film projects, as well as running her label. In 1999, she released her second solo effort, the stripped-down, almost bluesy After Hours. A fine vocalist, writer, and musician, Linda Perry has led a serious and occasionally subversive career, punctuated by her individualism and sense of artistic purpose. ~ Vincent Jeffries, Rovi

I love Linda Perry you rock! congrats to you and Sarah
Deep Dark Robot - her new band that she's singing in, with a 2012 release for all you Linda fans!
This has always been an album that I can sit down and listen to straight through without a break. Her voice has so much soul in it. Love her!
WHen I was 18 my androgenous likes where that of Grace Jones, Annie Lennox and Chrissy Hinds though my trendsetting ways had assisted my young fashion career I attracted a more popular crowd of overtly Bi-Polar artsy-fartsy Jon-of-Arc type of BFF's and this one stood out with her agressive self I made out with her in 1985 a year after I graduated we meet at Studio 9 - and 18 & over club that attracted girls, boys and all others who didn't want to go home. SHe didn't play any music at the time h
I totally agree. I was hooked as soon as I heard this Album.
I can rel8 to her sound .... sometimes it feels like the story of my life
It's criminal that In Flight was not promoted by Interscope. I can't stop listening to it. We can only hope that LP's new band, Deep Dark Robot produces such quality and moving work. Hope she actually performs in it as opposed to 'molding' a lead singer. Who else besides LP's voice has the power of Lennox, Crow, Joplin, Turner, Slick with a sprinkling of Sade? Wow, what a voice! In Flight is a killer album.
This is an extraordinar y album
So her brother is my boss at the Riverbendcaf e in Northbend, Wa and she actually came to the restaurant. My cousin has the song Wahts up as her ring tone. Irony... Yeah but I really work do work with jperry...
Linda, I was born in 64' in West Spfld!! Now in Wisconsin, I wasn't as smart as you, I landed in a "Cold" climate! Well next to suicide "What's up" carried me through probably the worst 'chapter' in my life! On the Gulf of Mexico, your extremely power hitting, talented voice was a message I needed to hear! Saddle up MF ur not done w/ life! 8 yrs thrown away.. ah you know the story! Keep re- cording others need to hear voice! Nelda Marie (Fink) Machkovech !
One of the most tuned set of pipes in the era(Linda Perry) almost at times breaking into letting emotions outa control but,Amazingl Y in control.
