Linda Perry’s first solo effort was the album In Flight recorded with Bill Bottrell producing. In the late 1990’s she recorded After Hours. Neither of her solo efforts saw any commercial success, however in 2000 she was contacted by singer (and 4 Non Blondes enthusiast) Pink and her career as writer/producer took off like a rocket. Linda wrote most of and produced Pink’s “Missundaztood” album which launched Pink’s very successful career. During the past decade Linda has successfully worked with many artists including Christina Aguelera (Linda wrote the song “Beautiful” which won Aguelera a Grammy Award) and Courtney Love. She is considered among the most successful pop music producers working today.
