PHIL PERRY / Press

“A timeline of the last 45-years (circa 1970 - 2015) of PHIL PERRY MUSIC is available at WIKIPEDIA.”

“..Perry and his longtime producer Chris “Big Dog” Davis drop another solid effort with A Better Man, which is a smooth and well-paced collection of 10 originals, cover tunes and a Montclairs’ remake that finds Perry sharing time with guests such as Howard Hewett, Kim Waters and Rick Braun. Perry is a romance singer and a balladeer, and longtime fans won’t be disappointed because nearly every track on A Better Man deals with some aspect of the love – ranging from the regret of love lost (“Sorry I Let You Go), to the love of a father for his children (“Beautiful Girls”). - See more at: http://www.soultracks.com/album-review-Phil-Perry-A-Better-Man#sthash.wzUwgUyV.JNg2G7P5.dpuf...”

“The best way to experience the music of Phil Perry is by catching him live. In 2015, Perry is headed for venues like the Birchmere Music Hall in Alexandria, Virginia. If you'd like to keep up on all of Phil Perry's upcoming shows, all you need to do is....”

“Perry’s stirring version of Mayfield’s “Gypsy Woman” creates a memorable and delightful moment on the album as he conjures up the beautiful imagery of his own “Gypsy Woman.” He also does justice to the Impressions hit “I’m So Proud,” which features the soulful and perfectly paired saxophone of Kim Waters. The original “Beautiful Girls” is a sweet number where Perry sings about the joy in his soul and stirring in his heart caused by the daughters that both he and Davis have raised as fathers...”

“Wow! What a combination. If you were to fashion a near perfect soul music combination, it would look a lot like Maysa and Phil Perry. They are both multiple SoulTracks Readers' Choice Award winners, and longtime favorites of SoulTrackers everywhere. - See more at: http://www.soultracks.com/first-listen-maysa-phil-perry-last-chance#sthash.t6nPA8wU.dpuf”

“A Better Man is loaded with highlights: “Stand Up,” an inspiring duet featuring the great Howard Hewett.This topical, meaningful song sends a strong message about becoming “A Better Man.” “I’m So Proud,” featuring Kim Waters. This inspiring version of the Curtis Mayfield classic is one for the ages! “Dreaming’s Out Of Season” – Phil’s reimagining of his signature hit with The Montclairs. “Feelin’ You” featuring Smooth Jazz trumpet star Rick Braun.”

“A Better Man is a stellar collection of ten tracks featuring eight originals that prove Perry to be an equally gifted composer as he is a singer.”

“Phil Perry shares time w/Diane Dayton of Cool Jazz Cafe about his concert with Will Downing, Friday, April 17, 7 p.m., @ the Scottish Rite Cathedral during the 25th anniversary Boscov’s Berks Jazz Fest.”

“One of the last remaining balladeers, Phil Perry, has released the tender tune, “Sorry I Let You Go,” a groove about love and loss from his eleventh solo album A Better Man, the follow up to 2013’s Say Yes.”

“...As the announcer introduced grammy winner Phil Perry, he came out dapper in a tuxedo. As soon as he reached the mic & opened his mouth, I could hear gasps in the crowd, guests were blown away as anyone would when you hear this man’s unique instrument like voice, smooth yet strong.”
