Regan Perry - Wiser -2009-
(Reggae, Roots, Acoustic)

From: New Zealand

Regan Perry is a roots reggae singer-songwriter from the King Country town of Te Kuiti. He has toured both as a solo artist and also as part of the roots reggae group Cornerstone Roots, throughout NZ, Australia & Japan. Regan Perry's debut solo album, Wiser, showcases his down-to-earth and easy-going nature and as a solo musician these qualities are brought to the forefront. Wiser was self-produced with the help of London-based Mike Neilson who has worked with the likes of U2, Bjork and Jamiroquai. Make no mistake though, this is the sound of 100% authentic NZ soul, roots and reggae! There is not a lot of info out there about Regan Perry, but what I did find and all anyone really needs to find is this amazing collection of extremely chill tunes that Mr. Perry has given us. Kind of a Jack Johnson and Donavon Frankenreiter vibe, but different in his own way with a little more reggae. Awesome tunes, the whole album is a fantastic listen from start to finish. Great musician, great tunes and a really cool backstory. Check this guy out! Watch the rest of the Regan: In His Own Words Documentary on YouTube.
