There’s a new Soul, Rock and Funk Maestro in town and he goes by the name of Charles Perry! Holding down the music fork that has been passed on to him through generations, including from his Grandfather, who was a Doo-Wop legend of the The Jive Five, Charles plans to keep the tradition going, delivering what God has gifted him.
Transitioning from Gospel music, the Brooklyn native plans to represent the Forefathers of Rock & Roll: James Brown, Chuck Berry, Jimi Hendrix — the ancestors who have paved the way for African-Americans in the various genres of music. Perry has donned himself “the representation of the new Generation of Rock Artists.”
About what separates himself from other artists:
There are a lot of people that are gifted. There are people that are talented. And then, there are people that are anointed…i’m anointed. I created a lane for myself, so i’m not worried about my car swerving or my spaceship going into another man’s lane. My lane is different. I sing Soul, Rock, Funk.
The talented singer also talks about possibly doing a Gospel album, if asked — because of his strong love for God. He also, speaks about bouncing back and forth in between genres, and music legends like Luther Vandross that influenced his style.
