Atlanta/Athens based musician Pearson Perry has released a song titled "Yell, Yell, Yell," with the intention of donating $1 to domestic violence causes every time the song plays. Perry lost her aunt, Martha Juliet Washington, in 1995 as a result of violent conflict in her home. Washington's husband, Michael, killed her, then himself in Kernersville, N.C. Her song pictures a different outcome. To listen to the song "Yell, Yell, Yell," go to www.myspace.com/pearsonperrypeople, or contact Pearson Perry at pearsonperrypeople@gmail.com to learn more about her CD.

Pearson Perry tried being a normal citizen, graduating ten years ago from the University of Georgia, she left Athens to pursue something 'practical'. That apparently wasn't her calling as she missed her little blue guitar far too much to be just a normal capitalist. She left the business of making money and listened to the voice inside her head that convinced her that music would revive that creative person that she was missing too much.

She has spent the last year shaping and perfecting her songs and rekindling the 'femme fatale' that her husband claims has been dominating everyone and everything over the years, she just didn't recognize it until now.
Her songs are playful, meaningful; thought provoking and most importantly well written, guess the university degree came in handy after all Pearson. In particular the powerful song 'Yell, Yell, Yell' written about her aunt Martha, murdered by her husband who had a history of domestic violence leaving four young children without a mother. In the song 'Almost' she shows us her sense of humour, almost as smart as my brother/ almost as pretty as my mother/ almost as charming as my dad/ almost is all I ever had.

She may look like the sweet girl next door on the exterior but she has no problem writing about the vulgar side of life, take the song 'Shelf #5', my personal favorite. She sings about fucking your best friend in the room next door, on the bed, against the wall and on the floor. I'll take two more lumps of vulgarity in my tea please!
Pearson is in the studio recording some new songs, hopefully an album is in the works for the near future. You can check out her myspace page at: http://www.myspace.com/pearsonperrypeople

Bio

She looks like the girl next door but when she opens her mouth her smart, focused lyrics drive her raspy alto and no-nonsense approach to story telling. She's Americana with an edge, and on the Country side of Singer-Songwriter, often to referred to as Atlanta's ultimate indie artist.

"A very compelling presence on air" says Robb Holmes, program director and host, WUGA FM. Pearson Perry was featured on Georgia Public Radio's show "It's Friday".

********************
Pearson Perry was raised to believe that the Bible, sweet tea, and southern charm were the secrets to success and long-term happiness. She was taught there are some things you just don't say. She found herself often at odds with her desire to have an independent voice and her family's southern sensibilities. Finally, she picked up a little blue guitar and quit worrying about it.

Her songs about people she knows or people she fantasizes about meeting share a theme. Some stories are sweet and some are dark, but all of the characters want to break free from expectation and obligation to experience something better.

A true steel magnolia, her girl next door appearance can hide her wicked sense of humor. But if you are lucky to hear a page out of her own diary, you can hear the mixture of toughness and vulnerability in her raspy alto voice and simple, rhythmic, percussive strumming.
