Blurb about Wm Perry

Wm Perry is a cross-genre Indie-Rock/PsychFolk/Roots singer-songwriter with a hint of Punk & the more avant-garde.  Tight, well-crafted songs that are sometimes disturbing, with jangled-y edges, but the music's bouncy & catchy darkness will leave you feeling pretty good.  Honest & not boring!

Great article about Wm Perry in Target Audiece Magazine, review of album "Flight Risk, No Bond" & photos of his artwork at http://www.targetaudiencemagazine.com/uploads/2011/wm_perry.php

Failed. Kept moving. Your typical starving-artist story. BFA from the Art Institute of Chicago, followed by several years in the Sign Industry. Front man in a multitude of short-lived bands, playing in clubs and warehouses in Chicago and LA's artsy, marginal war-zone neighborhoods. Now solo artist, self-recording. Moved from Chicago to Cincinnati; "economic refugee", you could say. Bought a cheap, old house on Craig's List, without seeing it first! Now completing the renovations to make four floors of combined living/studio space.

Guitars, keyboards, voice, computers:
William McGuffey Perry
