Ian Perry - Bio

Ian Perry is a singer, songwriter and musician who lives in Nanaimo, BC. A multi-instrumentalist, he began performing at the age of nine.

Now, six years later, he has built a resume which includes performances of original music at the Port Theatre in Nanaimo as a special guest of Loverboy, performances as a guest of Shaun Verreault of Wide Mouth Mason, the David Foster Miracle Weekend, the closing ceremonies of the BC Summer Games, the Shark Club, the Roxy, Falconetti's, and numerous appearances at local venues such as the Queen's Hotel, SimonHolt and the Nanaimo Blues Festival.

Ian's ability to blend a variety of musical styles, mastery of tone and enviable technical proficiency make him a fascinating player to watch on stage. Similarly, his already significant catalogue of original material draws from a depth of musical complexity not often seen from artists twice his age. His musical influences are wide, with likenesses often made to The Royal Blood, the Black Keys, Billy Talent, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Peter Frampton and even Pink Floyd.

He plays a variety of genres ranging from Rock and Blues to Gospel, Jazz and Classical. He was the 2012 winner of the BC Provincial Gold Medal for Classical Guitar and has received recognition at both the Lionel Hampton and West Coast Jazz Festivals for outstanding performances on guitar and bass.
