Perry's music career began at an early age. His mother was a concert pianist and naturally Perry studied piano for 3 years. He played trumpet in middle school and in high school picked up the baritone and guitar. His early influences were Kiss, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, and lots of 80s hair metal: Stryper, Ratt, Dokken, Skid Row, GNR, Motley Crue, Poison, Metallica, Barren Cross, Bloodgood, Saint, Messiah Prophet, Megadeth and Pantera just to name a few. His modern influences are Alter Bridge, Tremonti, Avenged Sevenfold, Bullet For My Valentine, Chevelle, Corrosion of Conformity, Godsmack, 5FDP and Disturbed. Perry’s sound has developed over the years to be a refined blend of Judas Priest and Metallica, combining classic metal crunch with an edge of modern metal assualt.
