A short drought has taken Forefront Records for the last three years where there has not been a single new artist signing. But not to worry, a 20-year-old came to the rescue when her God-give faith and talents has given her what it takes for Forefront to recently announce her signing. Her name: Kimberly Perry. Her musical style: a unique blend of rock, folk, and pop.
Kimberly Perry is a perfect addition to the Forefront roster," said Forefront Records President, Greg Ham. "She has maturity and talent beyond her years and is committed to pursue the calling God has placed in front of her."
From a small town, Greenville, TN, Perrys accomplishments would suggest otherwise. She has been writing and performing since the age of 15 with the instrumental talent at the guitar and piano. She has even hit grassroots markets ranging from Canada to Abama. Her talent has knocked two birds with one stone. In addition to inking a deal with Forefront records, Perry has also sealed a writer/publishing deal with EMI Christian Music Publishing.
Forefront has been working with Perry since April 2002 but finally when the partnership was materialized on paper, many look forward to new beginning.
"We are so excited about working with Kimberly," said Forefront Records VP of A&R, Brent Milligan. "She has a burning desire to see lives impacted by Christ through her music. It's rare to find such an artistic person with a great voice who is also all about building the Kingdom. We can't wait to see what happens when people hear her music and see her heart for God."
"My focus is to meet people where they are and to speak His message of life," says Kimberly. "Music is the vehicle He has given me and I am excited that He has brought me to work with the amazing people at Forefront Records to drive this message straight to the hearts of people everywhere."
Perry is currently writing and co-writing songs for her June 2004 debut release. For more information on Kimberly Perry and to hear samples of her music, visit www.kimberlyperryrocks.com.
