Multifaceted with sounds from across the genre spectrum, drenched in jazz and sporting a couple of electronica scars, this singer/songwriter has just returned from a musical excursion clutching a new breed of song. With influences ranging from Miles Davis, to The Police, to Björk; lyrics inspired by Love, Jesus and the inanimate; and a university degree in the technology of music under his belt, this music is certainly heartfelt and mature, yet fun and free. http://www.daveperkins.moonfruit.com Read more on Last.fm.
