Product notities

Perry Joe Gabbard and Elvis Presley go way back. At the age of three, this Indian boy was singing the songs of the King and emulating his famous moves. Now, almost thirty years later, Perry performs his own music live at venues such as The Nashville Palace and the Ryman Auditorium. Perry's acoustic-driven styles mixes Folk, Rock, and Country and draws on influences such as Neil Young, Elvis Presley, The Beatles, Hank Williams, and Bill Miller. Perry not only sings he plays guitar and Native American Flute. His guitar playing skills stem from the early Rock styling of Elvis Presley and Scotty Moore as well as the extra-expressive technique of Neil Young. "I like to play it in that Rockabilly style," Perry says, "I play it hard!" While Perry still loves to sing the songs of his heroes, he also writes and performs his own original works. "I like to write about true life experiences," Perry says, "You know there are a lot of cowboys out there who have never been on a horse. It makes a big difference if you've lived what you sing about. The audience feels it and so do you." Performing as Elvis Perry landed his first gig in 1990 when he sang and played Presley's music at the Fairbrook Manor Senior Center in North Vernon, Indiana. Perry has since performed as Elvis at many other senior centers, college dorms, nursing homes, and private parties. He even helped the United States Postal Service unveil The Elvis Presley commemorative postage stamp by performing at the post office in his hometown Brookville, Indiana. Perry's love for music came naturally. His musical roots run deep, and the taste of his parents and grandparents have contributed to his musical style. "My Grandpa's favorite singer was Hank Williams," says Perry, "I got my love of Country music from him. I was exposed to Gospel and Bluegrass from both sides of the family and Rock from Mom's record collection." Perry's interest for guitar began very early. He wanted to play it even before he could physically pick it up. He began learning chords at the age of fourteen. He also plays Native American flute, bass guitar, drums, harmonica, sitar, and piano. As a student Perry honed his talents by playing in all the bands high school could offer and singing in the chorus. Perry's musical ability was rewarded with a scholarship to Eastern Kentucky University to study music education. During that time he studied classical guitar and piano. He has since taught several people how to play guitar. Growing up, Perry's family instilled in him a sense of pride in his Cherokee heritage and made sure he knew as much as he could about his ancestors. Perry soon learned about Native American powwows and learned the Traditional Buffalo dance style. He now dances around the country at Native gatherings and powwows. Perry's Cherokee name is Spirit Dancer. This name was given to him be a Cherokee spiritual man who said he seen the long past ancestors dancing beside him in the circle. He said Perry was a part of the dance and not just a show. In 2003 Perry was a nominee in the Native American Music Awards for Best Country/Folk with the title track from his album Cherokee Hills. He was a part of the Native American Dance Theater for three years performing at the Ryman Auditorium and having a booth at Fan Fair in Nashville Tennessee. Perry Joe Gabbard is a man of many talents who loves to make music and is very proud of his Native American Heritage. His traditional values can be seen in his performances and felt in his music, which is honest and from the heart. Jason F. Anderson.
