For Vancouver, B.C. based singer, songwriter and actor Scott Perrie, everything in his creative life led him to now, this moment. A seasoned performer, he has been in dozens of professional theatre productions and many music groups predominantly the folk/rock band Redgy Blackout. Redgy Blackout established Perrie on the local scene as a vocalist and songwriter through their Top 20 win with the Peak Performance Project in 2011 and 2012. He’s performed at Canadian Music Week, Pop Okanagan, SummerFest, The Harmony Arts Festival, Khatsalano and more including a Canadian Tour in the fall of 2012. Redgy Blackout won the Shore 104 “Best of BC” for Perrie’s song “Lovely, Lovely Day”.
Perrie has come full circle, embracing all creative elements of his being by penning and producing his debut solo EP Everything Gives. It’s a collection of new acoustic songs recorded live in one day with only his voice, his grandpa’s guitar, a harmonica and a stomp box.
Everything Gives is inspired by the growing awareness for our planet and everything that it gives, every single day. The first song, Above the Clouds, written during a cold night on the Canadian prairies, speaks of love and the strength it provides during times of uncertainty. The opening line in the second song, “we once thought the world was flat/and we were so convinced of that”, came to Perrie while on tour with Redgy Blackout in Manitoba last fall. As indicated by the title, Elegy is a serious reflection about the earth, consumerism and the need for change. Inspired by every day life, On The Bus, is about a woman he encountered while riding public transit in Vancouver. Nobody But You took Perrie years to finish, and finally came together after recently finding the love of his life. The final two songs are playful and reflective, both aspects of Perrie’s personality and performance.
