Upgrade your event with music by Lisa Perry

Lisa Perry is a versatile and inspiring singer/songwriter/musician who now makes her home in North Texas. She started singing professionally when she was sixteen, and she worked for years in the midwest, playing concerts in Arkansas, Texas, Oklahoma, Missouri, and Colorado. She has opened for stars such as Jerry Jeff Walker, Jimmy Buffet, and Willie Nelson, and she has shared stages with Bonnie Raitt, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, John Hartford, Vassar Clements and Asleep at the Wheel.


Perry is the author of hundreds of songs, some of which are showcased on her original albums - Canyon Rose, Fractal Rose, Angel Rose, Nostalgia Rose and Tropical Rose. Although it is difficult to categorize the type of music that she writes, it would best be placed in the adult contemporary section. ''I've been influenced by so many different types of music. I believe people enjoy the fact that it is unusual and that it draws from a variety of styles,'' says Perry. She has also released a Christmas album that features a few original songs, but it is mostly composed of traditional Christmas music that she has written arrangements for.

Her newest work, Tropical Rose is a collection of original songs produced while she lived in central Florida and features tropical sounds like steel drums and percussion as well as her signature vocal harmonies. Angel Rose was the precursor to the tropical CD. ''Angel Rose is a group of spiritual songs,'' she says. ''I'm hoping it will be the kind of music that will cause people to pause and reflect, and be a comfort or an inspiration.'' In between Angel and Tropical came Nostalgia Rose. A project that was a dream come true for Lisa. She had always wanted to record her favorite jazz tunes from the 1940s era, and that's just what she did.

Lisa has been doing a variety of performances in Central Florida and the midwest for years. She is very much at home in a garden setting and enjoys outside venues like festivals, art fairs, and garden fairs. ''I love to be out in nature,'' says Perry. ''I am an avid gardener and a flower addict. So many of my songs are inspired by nature and I think they sound best when played in its presence.'' However, she is just as well suited to intimate settings where people are interested in hearing her original material. She has been compared to artists such as Joni Mitchell, Judy Collins, and Julia Fordham. The spiritual aspect of her music also makes her an appropriate choice for holistic or new age gatherings and ceremonies.

Lisa loves listening to old jazz, or nostalgia songs from the 30's and 40's. As a big fan of Billie Holiday and Sarah Vaughan, she performs songs from that era. This aspect of her repertoire makes her a good choice for weddings, receptions, or background music for romantic dining and intimate restaurants.

Lisa is equally comfortable in large concert situations. Her voice and her message are both powerful, meaningful, and thought provoking. ''I hope the music has a healing quality,'' she says reflectively. ''Music has the power to touch peoples hearts, or to carry them off into esoteric landscapes. It has the power to move blockages that we human beings accumulate and store without realizing what we are doing. Music, at its best, can help to dissipate those blockages and refresh our energies.''

Her versatility and unusual style make Lisa Perry an outstanding choice for a variety of settings. She is currently booking engagements for the remainder of the year. For information on available dates, contact Lisa at the above email address.
