When Blake Shelton calls, you answer. That’s exactly what The Band Perry did when Blake phoned the trio to mentor his team on NBC’s The Voice throughout the battle rounds, which are going on now. TBP was on hand to offer constructive criticism to Team Blake as they prepared for battle, something they found invaluable to their career when they were just starting out.

“One thing that we learned from in The Band Perry since day one was receiving constructive critique from people who watch our shows and from people who knew so much more about music and singing and playing in the music business than we did,” Kimberly Perry said. Continue Reading

The Band Perry on Getting “Gut-Level Honest”

The Band Perry on Getting "Gut-Level Honest"

The Band Perry admit there were some fears and doubts at play when they started making their latest album, Pioneer. Instead of falling victim to nagging thoughts, the trio embraced them and pushed forward, ending up with a project they are proud of.

“In different phases of this journey and making the record, it was our best friend, other times it was our creative arch enemy, but it was always our teacher,” Kimberly Perry said. “And I think the one thing that we really had to learn, when we were just putting one foot in front of the other as we would write a new song, as we were making decisions, was just to bust right through the fear.” Continue Reading

The Band Perry just released their latest single, “Chainsaw,” from the Pioneer album, but the band is already hard at work on their third studio album. Before recording Pioneer, the sibling trio had a routine for writing and places they felt most inspired. That changed with Pioneer and will affect their new music.

“I feel like there was this crazy thing that happened on Pioneer where we had to sort of learn to be creative on the go,” Kimberly Perry said. “But once we got the hang of it, every new place that we travel, every new horizon we see somehow inspires us with brand new music. It’s a really cool and fertile creative time for us right now.” Continue Reading
