Legendary AOR vocalist STEVE PERRY is BACK!
 
Well, not quite, but prepare yourselves for a well organised media campaign and NEW MUSIC.
 
Finally, the former frontman of Journey and driving force along with Neal Schon and Jonathan Cain behind some of the 80s biggest rock anthems, returns in 2018 after a decades long absence that has only been punctuated with a handful of brief public cameos: Hollywood Walk Of Fame Star ceremony with Journey in 2005; Baseball’s World Series in 2010; interviews in 2011 to discuss Sony’s Journey & Steve Perry catalogue reissues; joining The Eels on stage in 2014; and most recently just last year, the 2017 Rock N Roll Hall Of Fame ceremony to induct Journey.
 
He has teased fans with talk of new music along the way, in my own 2011 interview with Steve, he talked about commencing the recording process for new material.
 
Steve: “I've been sketching everything in my laptop in just a demo sketch form. And the good news is I've got some really fun moments in there, great things going. The bad news is that they're demos right now and they're just sketches.
I'm my own worst enemy. I have always been. I'll play things for friends and they just think they're really great. And they'll tell me the truth if they're not. I'll say, “Gee, my voice is a little out of tune here. I've got to sing this again. This bugs me, that bugs me.” And they'll say, “I'm sorry, I don't' hear that.” But I do. And so, you know, that's the problem.
I would never stop until I was happy. But I have been known to walk past some emotional moments reaching for things that I think could be better.”
 
So is 2018 really the year it will finally happen? Yes!
 
Steve Perry recently recorded a feature TV interview with CBS’ Sunday Morning program, which is the same outlet that did a Journey profile feature back in 2008.
The program is set to air Sunday, October 7.
 
Steve has just simultaneously launched his new social media platforms, which you can follow at the following links:
 
 
The 5 second video is a simple greeting: “I know it’s been a long time comin’…”
 
Yes it has. But I can confirm this is a definite music related publicity campaign. The long awaited new solo album is his first since 1994’s “For The Love Of Strange Medicine” and his first new music at all since the 1998 soundtrack song “I Stand Alone”.
 
Steve Perry has a new record deal, new management and as you have witnessed today, a new media presence ready to go (with new logo).
 
Stay tuned for more details ASAP.
