Birth Name




Linda Taylor was born and raised in Southern California. At the age of four, she began playing the guitar. Although she had several teachers early on and participated in the typical school programs, she is primarily self-taught. Before joining Drew Carey and the cast of "Whose Line is it Anyway" to play improvised music in 1999, she taught guitar at the Los Angeles Music Academy.

In addition to "Whose Line is it Anyway", Linda has appeared on such television shows as "The Roseanne Show", "The Late Show with David Letterman", "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno", "The Charlie Rose Show", "The Rose O'Donnell Show", "Crossroads" and "Late Night with Conan O'Brien".

Linda's guitar playing has taken her on tour with the likes of Chante Moore, Tracy Chapman, Jesse Powell, Thelma Houston and Japanese superstar Namie Amuro. She also appeared in the Montreux Jazz Festival with Kirk Whalum and Kevin Lattau. She also recently released her debut album, Pulse, which was produced by her own company, Rubicon Music.
