Currently airing across the United States, “Live at the Acropolis” was filmed at the 2000-year-old Odeon of Herodes Atticus at the foot of the Acropolis,featuring the classics in Perris’ repertoire as well as new special features fromWho I’m Meant To Be including a performance with Australian superstar Tina Arena.
The album, released via Destin Productions, is a testament that experience acts as the ultimate amplifier, and when upheld by true stories and raw emotions, a voice carries on forever. The album’s lead single and music video for “How Many Does It Take” shines a light on the struggle of addiction from the perspective of feeling powerless to help the one you love, and speaks to the greater message that regardless of which side of the battle you are on, we can all share and understand pain. We are never alone. WATCH HERE. Whoopi Goldberg recently discovered the song praising “Something I just came across. The song is beautiful, the message about addiction is powerful and the voice! You go George! He’s a star in Greece and we need to know him here.”
She Walks On, the second release from the album, is also a captivating track about Maya, a 9-year-old Syrian refugee he met at a camp in Greece. Check out the first listen on Parade Magazine. A beacon of strength, Maya was left alone at the camp after her father died during the war and both her mother and brother drowned on their way to Greece. When Maya asked George to sing for her, George sang a French lullaby that his mother sang to him as a baby. She hugged him, leaving George in awe of her hope. George promised he would write this song for her but when he returned, she was gone. LISTEN HERE. In these tracks and throughout the rest of the album, George Perris offers an authentic and deeply-empathic view of the world through stellar vocal dexterity, vulnerable storytelling, and expressive instrumentality.
“Perfect Enemies” comes from my deepest question regarding love and relationships: how and at which moment in time do you stop loving the other person or do you forget how it felt to be in love?,” shares Perris. “When do you become enemies with each other, even though your bodies and your souls have been so loved? How do we become detonators of pain all of a sudden? I think it’s a riddle I will never solve, but at least I got a song I really love.”
