Wm Perry


Music Style

Wm Perry is a cross-genre Indie-Rock/PsychFolk/Roots singer-songwriter with a hint of Punk &amp; the more avant-garde.&nbsp; Tight, well-crafted songs that are sometimes disturbing, with jangled-y edges, but the music's bouncy &amp; catchy darkness will leave you feeling pretty good.&nbsp; Honest &amp; not boring!<br /> <br /> Great article about Wm Perry in Target Audiece Magazine, review of album &quot;Flight Risk, No Bond&quot; &amp; photos of his artwork at http://www.targetaudiencemagazine.com/uploads/2011/wm_perry.php<br /> <br /> Links, with FREE downloads:<br /> http://www.sonicbids.com/wmperry (&quot;official&quot; page with bio &amp; press)<br /> http://www.myspace.com/wmperrymusic<br /> http://www.soundclick/wmperry (50 songs here)<br /> <br /> Biography<br /> 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; &quot;economic refugee&quot;, 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.<br /> <br /> Instrumentation<br /> Guitars, keyboards, voice, computers:<br /> William McGuffey Perry <br /> <br /> Discography<br /> Includes the self-recorded LP's:<br /> Flight Risk, No Bond<br /> Entire Approx<br /> It Can't Be Nighttime Everywhere<br /> Wm.
