"Everybody can make a record. Nobody can make a living. Now what?"
Rain Perry’s “Beautiful Tree” was the theme for the CW Network’s "Life Unexpected," on which she also had the surreal pleasure of appearing as herself. She has released four albums on her own Precipitous Records, as well as writing and touring a solo play about her childhood called "Cinderblock Bookshelves: A Guide For Children of Fame-Obsessed Bohemian Nomads." She is proud to release her first film "The Shopkeeper."
1: What artist would you most love to work with?
It's a tossup between getting to sing onstage with Bruuuuuuuuce and getting to work on some elaborate musical project with Randy Newman.
2: What instrument brings you the most joy?
The human voice, especially when it's singing lyrics that speak right to a person.
3: What was the worst advice?
"Sign away 50% of your publishing for a chance at film/tv placements." (This is advice I didn't take.)
4: What was your first concert?
Billy Joel at the Inglewood Forum, man!
5: What/where is the best road food?
Hadleys's in Cabazon. It might not be the best, but it's the most fun, and the dinos are right next door.
6: What’s the best music advice you ever got?
It wasn't advice so much as just an attitude. Every musician - and there were a bunch - who took me seriously as a girl singer/guitar player taught me that I had every right to do it.
