Perri and Neil to perform intimate View Two Gallery gig

Vocalist Perri Alleyne-Hughes and guitarist Neil Campbell have had a busy 12 months writing new songs together, performing around the North West and recording their first album at Parr Street Studios, which they are currently mixing. Perri and Neil will be performing a set of their co-written songs on Friday 15th April at Liverpool’s intimate View Two Gallery

During the last month alone, they have supported jazz legend Courtney Pine at Liverpool’s new Capstone Theatre and played their own arrangement of Gary Numan’s ‘Are Friends Electric?’ at St George’s Hall Concert Room for the packed out Geek Chic ‘In Conversation with Peter Serafinowcz’ event last week.

Their genre-defying music, which is in a style of its own somewhere between jazz, classical and folk/singer-songwriter, could sound like a symphony of overdubbed guitars one moment and in the next instant tug at your heart strings, as silky smooth vocals soar over a delicate impressionistic backdrop.

Perri Alleyne-Hughes is the choral director for Sense of Sound Singers. Her arrangements for many of the choir’s most popular renditions have helped to earn them the reputation they deserve. Sense of Sound Singers famously appeared on BBC’s ‘Last Choir Standing’ and they have also worked on prestigious projects with Damon Albarn, Seal, Russell Watson and PacoPena amongst others.

Guitarist and composer Neil Campbell is known to many in his home city of Liverpool for his innovative and virtuoso classical guitar playing, in which he often uses loops and electronic effects. He has also worked on large scale performance projects such as ‘Ghost Stories: A Night Opera’ at St Lukes (Bombed Out) Church in Liverpool City Centre. This featured a surround sound musical performance with soprano, electronics, classical guitar and visual projections.

Neil met Perri in 2009 when he staged ‘Frankenstein’, a progressive rock oratorio, at St George’s Hall Concert Room with his band The Neil Campbell Collective and Sense of Sound Singers. In collaboration with Sense of Sound he has also developed a new surround sound epic for choir, co-written with Yes vocalist Jon Anderson, and performed at The Black-E in December 2010.

Perri and Neil will be performing a set of their co-written songs on Friday 15th April at Liverpool’s intimate View Two Gallery, in an evening that will also feature an electrifying solo guitar set from Neil.
