Early History to present:

Linda (Brace) Logue was born & raised in Chicago and a surrounding suburb, Fox Lake, IL. Her family moved to South Florida in 1989. She has always been a huge music fan since a very young age and recalls her family used to gather around the record player and sing all the time and all kinds of music, including: Michael Jackson, Lionel Richie, Barbara Streisand, Captain & Tennille, BeeGee's, Elvis Presley, Diana Ross, Whitney Houston, and many more... When she wasn't singing with the family, she was singing all the 80's R & B and pop songs at home while acting out homemade comedy skits promoting fake commercials and imitating other people. She really loved imitating voices and the dance moves and artists she watched on MTV. Linda practically grew roots into the living room floor watching MTV and comedy movies every possible moment she could. When she couldn't watch MTV, she had her radio with her. You just couldn't keep her away from her music and music videos. For Linda, life just couldn't be without music.

Somewhere in 1994, a very close friend of Linda's was driving in a car with her and Linda was softly singing with the radio. Her friend said, "was that just you singing?" Linda replied (thinking she was going to make fun of her or something), "yeah, why?" Linda's friend replied (seriously), "you are fantastic and I want to be your manager when you make it!" "That was when it became a little less frightening to sing a little bit in front of a few select people," Linda says. In 1995, Linda let everyone know she could sing solo when her father took her to a local bar and bet her $20 that she would not sing in front of a bar loaded with people for a holiday party. Twenty bucks richer, she took that microphone trembling and belting out Whitney Houston's "Saving All My Love For You." After 10 minutes of the crowd clapping, cheering & screaming, she knew that singing would be a way of life. 

Linda kept on singing in karaoke shows until she gained enough experience to run karaoke shows. She ran karaoke shows and then competed in singing competitions to gain experience until there came a point where she took professional voice lessons throughout 1996 & 97. In 1998, she joined the FCMA (Florida Country Music Association). During the 1998 FCMA Annual Showcase rehearsals, Linda met Michael Logue and the two began seeing each other and writing their own original music together. From there, Linda and Michael were asked to join a local Ft. Lauderdale band named, "Rocking Horse," where they played country and rock music for private parties over the next year around South Florida. By December 1999, Linda and Michael moved up to the Ocala/Leesburg area where they started up a new rock band (which was only a duet and occasionally Michael younger brother playing bass), they called themselves, "Missing Link," which quickly changed to the name, “Misstaken" after gaining a more permanent bass player and drummer. They also started dabbling in writing their own original music. Over the next several years,
they played shows containing the cover songs everyone knows & loves as well as a couple of their original songs. They went through a few
musicians trying to find their sound and their image. Between 2005-2007, Misstaken was a well-known band in the Central Florida area and all the locals knew that meant good music! But that didn't seem to be enough for Linda and Michael. They wanted to turn Misstaken into an all-original band and were beginning the switch by mid-2007 by backing out of the bar & performing scene and beginning to use the weekend for writing & rehearsing original songs. 

The whole original transformation finally took root in 2010 when the whole band realized that it actually felt better to play their heartfelt, original music. So, they decided that this was the time to make the jump into an all-original band, which is also when they decided to change the band name to "iN2wishin" so that the band name more reflected the way they felt to play their original music, and also so that people no longer associate them with cover music. Also in 2010, they lost their bass player once more, which delayed the recording and release of the 13
original song debut album. After losing their bass player again, though, Linda decided it was time to step up and start doing the bass herself so
that they no longer have to worry about that position with the band anymore.
iN2wishin began recording their first entire album in 2011-12 and the release is expected to be sometime in 2013.

Linda managed iN2wishin' (formerly known as " Misstaken") most of the early years; and Linda was in charge of promotions and the merchandising that were purchased while on tour. 

Linda also performed steady solo singing projects from mid-2009 in internet cafes and has continued doing so until March 2013 when those businesses were shut down.
