James Perry is a multi-instrumentalist, singer, and songwriter based in the San Francisco Bay Area. He has been writing and performing music for most of his life on his own and with a variety of musical projects. In addition to his solo pursuits, he is also a member of Oakland, California-based industrial band Deathline International. "I really enjoy working with a collaborative band as well as being a control freak, and being able to write and record my own songs exactly the way I want them to be. Being in Deathline and having my own solo project allows me to do both," he says.
