My amazingly talented and beautiful friend Francesca de Valence released her debut album Own Self (after four EPs!) late last year. It’s a freaking masterpiece of songwriting and musicianship. She’s touring now to promote the album and is coming to my favourite venue, The Newsagency in March. Francesca founded the I Heart Songwriting Club, that I’ve been part of for almost a year, so you can thank her for helping me hone my songwriting skills by getting me in the habit of writing every week. She’s pretty much a goddess and you should come to this gig to marvel at the beauty of her voice and her songs. Oh and I’m playing too, bringing the dork side to the gig. If you’re lucky, we might even have time to knock up a duet during soundcheck.
Mirrors & Windows has been receiving fabulous reviews!
“…the song comes with a strong message. It helps that the message comes attached to a fun, piano driven sound which whets the appetite nicely for her upcoming album. Also, be sure to watch the video to the end.” – Golden Newbies
“…her new single ‘Mirrors & Windows’ is a wonderfully infectious piece of piano pop – soulfully captured with a compellingly dark inspiration.” – Real Music Network
“…Perris does a great job of showing that serious subject matter can still be delivered with infectious rhythms and melodies. The lyrics speak of moving through anxiety, depression and feelings of loneliness (Perris herself wrote it while suffering post-natal depression), but it all comes wrapped in a classy, pacy package. Twinkling but powerful, the song is also proof that the oft neglected piano can be used to great effect in modern times. More please.” – Indie Music Mag
