Perry Desmond-Davies: Home
"The songwriting of Perry Desmond-Davies never stands on ceremony. She writes from the heart and mind about the ups and downs of everyday life that carry the weight of honest experience. Desmond-Davies' voice is unadulterated and pure, cut from the same working class cloth as artists such as Pete Seeger, Tom Waits and even a bit of early Janis Joplin.
She plays working class hero on Sweet Ride, sticking to the basics of everyday life and the human condition; drawing the joy and pain of small victories and subtle defeats out into the open in song. She is a story-teller who writes songs, or a songwriter who tells-stories. It's hard to say which comes first, as the two talents blend thoroughly throughout Sweet Ride. A Sweet Ride it is."
