Linda Perry is best known as the beautiful frontwoman of the 90's band 4 Non Blondes. The band had tons of radio play with their one and only hit song "What's Up?" Not long after that, 4 Non Blondes called it quits. Since the break up, Perry has kept busy and began her own record label called Custard Records. She composed and produced hit songs for Christina Aguilera, Gwen Stefani, Pink, Adam Lambert and Alicia Keys. Perry has also contributed to albums by Courtney Love and Kelly Osbourne, as well as signing and distributing James Blunt in the US.
Now Perry is the leading lady of the VH1 competition show "Make or Break: The Linda Perry Project." Perry has opened the doors of her Hollywood studio to a talented group of young artists in hopes of finding the next big thing. In the end of it all, Perry will choose one or more artists to sign to Custard Records. Over the course of three weeks, the artists will perform in front of a live audience with little time to prepare, on the streets of Hollywood busking for spare change, and before some of the industries toughest celebrity critics. When it all comes to an end, Perry is looking for that special artist or band that will bring success to her label, and amazing music to the masses.
“You’ll have to just wait and see what happens on the show,” Perry said. “There are great moments where you watch these artists discover other talents or voices they didn’t even know they had. You’re seeing original songs being written and seeing where they are at the start to where they end up – it’s night and (expletive) day. It’s pretty powerful stuff and hopefully people can take that and apply it to their own lives,” Perry told the Orange County Register in a July interview.
