What is 'Purple Tree'?

*~*"Purple Tree are essentially a vehicle for the music of singer and songwriter David Perry" ~UNCUT Magazine

*~*"Purple Tree comes off as a refreshing new vibe instead of another Sgt. Peppers era Beatles wannabe band [...] Their lyrics have lyrical substance to them, unlike what you would hear with main-stream music today. " ~N.R.Mozis, ROCKBAND.COM

*~*"This project [Purple Tree] will be a vehicle for my songs," Interview with David Perry ~Midwest Beat Magazine 2003

'Purple Tree' is the retro rock movement for the new century. Incorporating influences from the 60's and 70's, together with vintage keyboards, this music has been described by listeners as "British Sounding", and even "Pink Floyd meets Julian Lennon". 'Purple Tree's lyrics are masterful and enlightening with a sharp message involving love, life, and politics. The project has an eclectic sound appeasing to several ages and genres while ignoring popular categories and labels.

'Purple Tree' became popularized throughout the Chicago-Land area by means of live performance. The project moved to the east coast for two years introducing its sound to a responsive New York City fan base, established through internet and word of mouth. 'Purple Tree' has been seen in such New York clubs as 'Arlene's Grocery', 'Crash Mansion', and 'Fat Baby' to name a few. After the foundation for this project was laid out in the 'big apple', David decided to again plant his roots in the Metro-Chicago area where he continues to create this unique style of music.
