A 21st Century Blues Man
The Founding Father of the "Northern Sound", Mojo Perry is no stranger to the guitar. Starting at age five, he quickly graduated to performing in Taverns by the age of 9. Standing out amongst other guitarists, most of whom were much older, he released his first full fleged recording at age 16. Even at that young age he wrote material that had his distinct finger prints and signature sound. He was always found in a recording studio laying down tracks and perfecting his craft. Eventually, his first official Label Release came when he was 23. His Brainchild, the "Wandering Gypsies", landed modest success with their record : "The Man". Spawning hits that are still drawing fresh ears, "The Man" showed Mojo could obtain his dreams. Becoming a session guitarist in Chicago, he found himself thrust into the Blues circuit often backing up big names. He aggressively continued to hone is Art and eventually perfected his Signature Sound: the "Northern Sound". Mojo's first Solo recording, aptly titled "Bookmaker", was released in 2000 and proved to be a work horse launching him in broader markets. Although he came from the Blues, Mojo fused Psychedelic Rock with extreme Acid Overtones in live performances. His recordings proved that it could effectively be captured on tape. Several songs on "Bookmaker" are still highly requested at shows and receive continual radio airplay. He graduated to the Festival Circuit and shared stages with many musical peers that previously were'nt within his reach. Becoming a favorite on the festival circuit for his Psychedelic Guitar playing and passionate guitar licks, Mojo still had a Creative Path he remained true to. His 2003 Release, "Closer to the Far Away", made it clear to new and long time fans alike that he was Distinct and very different. Blending Art, Blues, Psychedelic Rock, with his unique style of Guitar Playing, Mojo finally hit pay dirt. National and International attention started to dawn on him and his Audience grew considerably. Eventually he caught the attention of Guitar Legend "Chris Duarte", (Shrapnel Records): A friendship ensued, and Chris produced Mojo's most current endeavor "Echoing Endlessly Inside My Head". Bearing his normal fingerprints, "Echoing Endlessly Inside My Head", once again shows Mojo's unique ability to reinvent himself. Proving to be a pioneer in "Guitar Looping", Mojo fuses Guitar Looping with his Blues Infused Psychedelic Rock: truly groundbreaking. An epiphany of artistic offerings of wise to wishful recipes of tone. Although he's graduated to a larger market, Mojo still considers himself "Underground".
