John G. Perry


JOHN G. PERRY is best known for his session work, most notably in CARAVAN on "For Girls Who Go Plump in the Night" and "Caravan and the New Symphonia," but he has performed with many other Prog and non-Prog artists. PERRY was actually born in the United States, but both of his parents were of British descent and only there because his father was involved in military training. Soon, his family moved back to the UK, and as PERRY grew up, he became more interested in music. Read more on Last.fm
JOHN G. PERRY is best known for his session work, most notably in CARAVAN on "For Girls Who Go Plump in the Night" and "Caravan and the New Symphonia," but he has performed with many other Prog and non-Prog artists. PERRY was actually born in the United States, but both of his parents were of British descent and only there because his father was involved in military training. Soon, his family moved back to the UK, and as PERRY grew up, he became more interested in music. His first "career" in music was as a member of various UK garage bands (GRINGO, UTOPIA (Not the Rundgren project of course!), etc...).

GRINGO actually toured alongside CARAVAN, as an opening act on the "In the Land of Grey and Pink" tour. Thus, the two bands got to know each other quite well. They also opened for BARCLAY JAMES HARVEST, around the same time. One day, Pye HASTINGS gave PERRY a call, asking if he would like to become a part of CARAVAN.

The rest is history as we know it. After leaving CARAVAN, PERRY went on to form QUANTUM LEAP, while working as a session artist (he evene was a member of CURVED AIR for a short while). PERRY released his first solo album, "Sunset Wading" (with Rupert Hine and a slew of guests), in 1976. Canterbury new age is the best way I can describe it, with some jazz fusiony textures.

It's very impressive and introspective! After releasing "Sunset Wading," PERRY continued to do session work, along with recording some library music for television and movies. Another album, "Seabird," was released by Voiceprint in the 1990's, which I have not heard. I think it was recorded in the 70's, but not released until the 90's. Read more on Last.fm.
