Linda Linda is a fixture in L.A.’s local music scene. Along with performing, she also writes and produces music. Oh and, did we forget to mention that she has performed with Julio Iglesias? We recently caught up with the multi-talented singer and blogger babe to chat about all things creative, her favorite perfect romantic date place, pies to die for and a little photo shoot with our girl Linda complete in a pair of our Grace Vintage cat eye sunglasses. Read more below:
WCS: Do you have a special or unique talent/hobby/interest? If so, please give us all the details.
Linda: I like to draw and make really colorful, detailed somewhat crazy art.
WCS: What is your funniest experience ever?
Linda: That’s a really hard question. Two years ago though when we were celebrating my birthday, a friend of mine found a pretty decent sized tree laying on Hollywood blvd that he decided to bring along on our walk to another venue. He then got into an epic tug of war with a random guy over this stupid tree. It was hilarious and the pictures I got were so good!
WCS: How have you been spending your summer?
Linda: I spent a lot of time this summer with my family which was really nice. Plenty of trips to the beach and lots of great food.
WCS: What is one interesting thing about you that you want to share with our readers?
Linda: I am a singer, songwriter and producer. I can spend hours in the studio writing and programming sounds.
WCS: What is the craziest thing you’ve ever done?
Linda: It would probably be the time I sang a duet with Julio Iglesias. I got the call on a Friday, got on a plane to Bulgaria on Sunday to audition in person, then had two days to learn the song before heading to Egypt where we performed. It was very surreal but such an amazing experience.
WCS: Tell us a bit about your hometown and best kept secrets for entertainment, night life and restaurants.
Linda: There’s a lot of really cool places here in Los Angeles and I constantly discover new gems. My favorite cafe though is Aroma cafe in Studio City. It’s super cute and their pies are to die for! There’s a lot of really amazing restaurants but one I really like is The Little Door on 3rd street. It is a French restaurant and the perfect romantic date place. I always get the duck there and chocolate cake for dessert. I prefer going to bars with my friends over night clubs because I like to be able to have a conversation. Villain’s Tavern in Downtown is always a good time. They serve delicious cocktails and there’s always different live bands that play blue grass music on the outdoor patio.
