Perry's honest brand of contemporary acoustic music is about life stories that you can relate to. Her original songs both speak to and share the listener's experiences in life, love and relationships, work, and even serious illness. Her distinctive voice ties the words and music together: always tender, lyric and melodic, at times soaring, seductive or smoky.
Says a listener: "Pure and powerful, Perry's songs touch unguarded parts of us, and fill us with joy, nostalgia and longing. Once you see and hear Perry Desmond-Davies perform, you will never confuse her with anyone else. "
Originally from Maine, now living near Boston, Perry Desmond-Davies began performing on the New England coffeehouse scene as a teenager, then stashed away the music to focus on career and family. After signing up for a random open-mike performance a few years later, she finally returned to her music roots, and has been sharing her amazing voice and heartfelt songs with happy listeners ever since.
Perry has been was a finalist in Portsmouth, NH’s first annual Prescott Park Arts and Acoustic Festival Emerging Singer-Songwriter competition, and was recently chosen as a finalist for the well-known Susquehanna Music Fest in Havre de Grace, MD. She has also hosted several successful coffeehouses and open mikes, including The Gathering Place(Nashua, NH), The Pleasant Café Open Mike(Maynard, MA), and her most recent venture, the Maynard Public Library “Unplugged” monthly music series.
Perry's first CD, "This One's for You", was a live performance from Nashua New Hampshire's Simple Gifts Coffeehouse.
Her newest release, the full length studio album, "Sweet Ride", has been described as: "...an inspired, addictive mix of folk, blues, bluegrass and a capella, all driven by an exceptionally beautiful voice."
"Sweet Ride" contains 12 new original songs in a variety of styles, and has received wide acclaim and constant airplay across the US, UK and Canada. The title track was recently featured on NPR Car Talk's Christmas 2010 show!!
