Linear


Linear was a 90's pop\freestyle group from Miami, Florida that consisted of lead singer Charlie Pennachio & percussionist Joey Restivo from New York and guitarist Wyatt Pauley from Ecuador.
In 1990, the group released their self-titled debut album which peaked at #52 on the Billboard 200 chart on Atlantic Records.
The first single from the album, "Sending All My Love" became Linear's biggest hit to date, peaking at #5 on the Billboard Hot 100 in May of 1990 and #8 on Billboard's Hot Dance Music\Maxi-Singles chart. The song was certified Gold by the RIAA.
The follow-up single from the album, "Don't You Come Cryin" peaked at #70 on the Billboard Hot 100 in July of 1990.
The last single released from the album, "Something Going On" failed to make the Billboard charts at all.
In 1992, Linear released their sophomore album, "Caught in the Middle" which failed to make the Billboard album charts.
The only single to chart was "T.L.C." which peaked at #30 on the Billboard Hot 100 in June of 1992.

A promo single, "Smile if You Like Sex" was released, but failed to make the charts at all. After that, it seems as if Linear had faded into obscurity.

These days, Charlie Pennachio appears to be active in the music business, producing & writing music for various artists.

It's unknown what the other members of the group are up to today.
