ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"It's all about good songs", says Jim Perry. "This is not rocket science. Whenever I'm writing, I always try to relax and let it flow. You can tell if someone is forcing a song out". On Jim's debut solo CD, "Moment of Truth", the melodies and hooks flow abundantly. Nothing sounds forced here. Jim lets his influences show through, but not too much. There are shades of Eric Clapton, The Beatles, Billy Joel, Jackson Browne....etc., yet it all molds into Jim's own style.
Not only has Jim written every song on this CD, but with the exception of a few drum tracks, he plays every instrument, and sings all the vocal parts. "I've always felt this stuff stirring around in my head", says Jim, "and I decided, what the hell, I HAVE to get it out". So, in early 2002, in one 3 month spurt of creativity, he finally got it done.
From the opening track, the Claptonesque "Raincheck On Romance", the energy is high, and you can tell this is no routine CD. Songs like "Tavern Town", "Harry's Song (Between the Cracks)", and the topical "Category" take you through many different songwriting styles, yet there is a common thread throughout.
In the title song, Jim sings "I wanna be there when the Moment of Truth arrives at your doorstep". Says Jim, "That was actually autobiographical, written in third person. I was basically telling myself to just get off my ass and do it!" He finally has, and "Moment of Truth" is the excellent result.

Jim sounded fantastic as always!!!
I saw Jim live a few years back and was totally bowled over at what talent my cousin had! He has the most amazing voice and since he was a young teen could pick up almost any instrument and play like a professional! I will be sure to purchase Jim's solo CD. Best of luck to you Jim!!! Theresa

An outstanding writer & incredible guitarist
Jim came in to perform at a singer songwriter showcase that I host on Thursday nights. His music is refreshing and he had an instant connection with the crowd. The words, his voice, the arrangement and his incredible, intricate guitar playing...I booked him as a "feature artist" right away!! Jim's music is truly inspiring!!! His new CD is one you'll love!

Sharp, right to the point, great melodic hooks
Some of these licks seem timeless. They are new, yet they seem as though they've always been there. Solid hooks and unforgettable melodies best sums up this newest compilation.

Perry s amazing talents shine through loud and clear on this CD..!
I realized Clapton has nothing on Perry after hearing Romance on Raincheck!!Harrys Song was so real to life that Im sure Jim speaks for all of us in that tune...
