Linda Perry is getting a new show on VH1 called The Linda Perry Project. “Wait, who the hell is Linda Perry?” you yell (please don’t do that, it’s very rude). Perry is a singer who had a one-hit wonder in the band 4 Non Blondes with the song "What's Up," (you know, the one in the ‘90s? She wore the most ridiculous hat in the existence of hats?) and went on to have a mildly successful solo career.

But Perry went the route of many singer-songwriters who couldn’t find huge success solo and became a powerhouse songwriter and producer working behind the scenes in the pop music factory. Perry has written and produced hit songs for some of the biggest pop princesses in the past decade and has been instrumental in the careers of artists like Pink and Christina Aguilera. In her new show, she'll use her music industry expertise to mentor up-and-coming artists.

The ones who show the most promise will be signed to her newly re-launched record label, Custard Records. So what kind of music can we expect from the artists on The Linda Perry Project? Maybe the most successful songs Perry has written for formerly up-and-coming artist can give us an idea…
