How to Get a Guitar Player’s Attention
Posted On June 19, 2021
I’m Linda Taylor, and I’m the singer and guitarist of rockwell musician sia.
I’ve been writing music for a long time, but I was never a singer, guitar player, or rockwell guitarist.
I think my biggest challenge has been getting the attention of the people that really matter, like rockwell’s management.
So, I wanted to write a song that was kind of a tribute to them.
I wanted them to hear my song, and that’s what we got out of it.
I have a song called “My Body Is Mine,” which is about a breakup.
It’s a song about the relationship between my body and my mind.
So it’s about my body.
It also has a bit of a personal narrative about my relationship with my father.
And it’s a really touching song.
I’m really happy with the way it turned out.
I don’t really think that song is my song to play at the show.
It could be a song from a different artist.
But it’s just a song.
It can be a very personal song, I guess.
And I was very excited to play it, and it was really funny.
It was just really fun to play, and the audience loved it.
So you have a personal relationship with rockwell, and you’ve been with them since the very beginning?
I was a fan of rock and roll for a very long time.
I started going to the shows, I think it was in the late ’70s, early ’80s.
I remember that I got into the early bands, like the Doors and the Clash, when they were in that era.
I loved the way they played.
And they were great.
So I went to see them, and they had the greatest show I’ve ever been to.
So that was the first time I ever saw them.
And my first concert ever was in front of them.
So my family was in LA, and my girlfriend was in New York.
So she was there too, and we all had to drive from Los Angeles to New York, which was really tough.
So we all drove to LA and I was like, “How can I play this?”
I was in my dressing room in my room in the basement.
And then they were playing.
And this was right before they were doing a tour with me.
And so I started playing and I just got the most intense, emotional response.
And the next night I played in front the whole room.
And after a few songs I went onstage, and everyone was like “Holy shit!”
And I just stood there, I had no idea what to do.
I had never played live, so I was just so excited to start playing.
I thought, “Holy crap, I can do this!”
And that was it.
So they were like, Oh, you really can do it.
“So I started out on stage, and then they brought me onstage for my first gig.
And that’s when I started seeing rockwell as a family.
And rockwell was one of the first places I was able to have that experience.
And when I met my girlfriend in New Jersey, we were married on April 4, 1983.
And we moved to New Jersey together in 1984.
So I was born and raised in New Hampshire, right?
I grew up in New Hampshirks, Massachusetts.
I moved to Laconia, New Hampshire when I was 6 years old, and now I’m in New Brunswick.
I live in Laconias, New Brunswick, and in New Kent, New Jersey.
I grew up on the coast.
I have family there.
So New Hampsheire is where I grew my roots, so it’s where I’ve lived my whole life.
But New Brunswick is where the roots are.
New Brunswick was also where my dad was born.
So yeah, I’ve always lived here.
I went there, but New Hampshire is where my roots are, so that’s where my family is.
I got to do a lot of traveling, and travel all over the world, and have done.
What’s the hardest thing to do when you’re away from home?
The hardest thing is when you have to get back home.
I can’t go on a cruise without having to get up at 6:00 a.m. to get to work.
So the whole thing is really difficult.
I mean, I’m always up at 3:00 p.m., but I have to wake up, and be ready to go to work, at 3 o’clock in the morning.
I would wake up at 4:00, and there’s no way I’m going to be able to get home.
So you can’t do that.
So all of my family members are all there, and traveling is always a chore for me.
I love that people really care about my career.
How do you think rockwell is affected by all this fame?
