Women on Top: Linda Perry – Music Producer (2006)
Songwriter/producer Linda Perry is one of the most sought-after names in music today. In spite of personal challenges, she has conquered her inner demons and her work has transformed her into a legend in her own time. Linda displayed her talents for music at an early age. During her teenage years not only did she flounder in school, she failed when it came to forming bands in the San Diego area.
Remarkably, in the 90’s she catapulted to fame as the singer/songwriter on “What’s Up,” a monster hit that sold seven million albums worldwide for “4 Non Blondes.” Thanks to Linda Perry, artists such as Pink, Christina Aguilera, Enrique Iglesias and Gwen Stefani have touched the hearts of millions. Quick to recognize talent, she signed the British artist James Blunt to her newly formed record label Custard. She will continue to be a formidable force in the music industry for years to come.
