John Perry, Freddie Stevenson

Got an email yesterday from John Perry - guitar legend and author of our Hendrix book. He'll be in NYC at the end of this month, playing a show at the Lakeside Lounge, as part of Freddie Stevenson's band.

If you're looking for something new to listen to, take a moment to head over to Mr. Stevenson's website. There are three songs to download on there. Two of them ("Sunday Morning Girl" and "Woe to You My Princess") are sharp little folksongs, and the third ("If You Don't Kiss Me") is a forthcoming single in the UK, and has Radio 2 Playlist stamped all over it - it's bright, breezy, confident pop. Mr. Stevenson's enunciation is something to behold, too: no lyric sheets required here!
