Like a welcomed breeze
on a hot and hazy day, Lori Perry delivers a breath of fresh air
that redefines the parameters of gospel, jazz and R&B music.
Known by some of the top entertainers in the world she has been
a featured voice on countless projects and stage shows.
Growing up, Lori first
sang with her three sisters whose grandfather called upon their
whole family to comprise the entire choir for his small church.
Eventually the stage became home for the sisters and the group Perri
was formed; their talents became regularly sought after by artists
like Pat Metheny, The Yellow Jackets, Anita Baker, George Duke,
Cher, Brian Culbertson, Roberta Flack, Sting, George Michael and
Seal to name a few.
Even though her love
for the stage continued to grow, Lori realized that something was
missing in her life. As Perri developed a name for themselves and
were working on their very first major release through MCA Records...
Lori had a revelation. A seed was planted in her spirit which told
her that she would never truly be happy and fulfilled with her music
until she started to use that music in praise of the Lord above.
Many years passed, the hunger and yearning began to grow in her
heart. In 2003 Lori began to work on her first solo release, entitled
"Wrote This Song", she calls this spirit-based music featured
on the project "GoJazz". The fusion combines Gospel and
Jazz music with a unique synergy leaving the listener feeling completely
uplifted and calmed at the same time.
Lori was inspired by
so many great singers and song writers to write almost every song
on her project covering a wide range of emotion and depth. "My
testimony is actually one that encompasses the testimonies of many
others. I feel compelled to be the voice for many individuals who
don't get the opportunity to put a microphone in their hand and
reach thousands of people at one time. I want to tell their stories
for them as well as walk you through my spiritual journey."
Songs like "No Longer Run" depict Lori's testimony as
she proclaims her relationship with her music and begins to minister
to herself. Another song impacting radio "I Found It In You"
moves a step farther in her journey giving praise to the Father
above for the changes she has made in her life.
where the Lord would lead her after she finished the project, she
patiently waited until the door was opened to her ideas and music.
Lori is poised and ready to convert one listener at a time with
her story, unmistakable voice and fresh production - offering a
total package of musical aromatherapy to your soul.
