My name is Syd Perry, I am a Roots Reggae singer-songwriter. Jamaican/Canadian originally from Toronto. I sing, play rhythm guitar (12-string acoustic) and play Blues harmonicas. Although I often cover Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, Dennis Brown and more, I write, compose, arrange and perform all my own original music, which I call 'Roots Blues Reggae'.
Since starting my music career in 2012, I have recorded a solo EP (2013), toured Western & Central Canada (2013), toured Central & Eastern Canada (2014), toured coast-to-coast across Canada on my Reggae Traveler Tour (2015), released first single 'Rasta Woman' & music video (2016), released my second single 'Stereotype' and filmed music video (video release TBA).
I am currently performing and recording in Jamaica, (Kingston, Negril, Port Antonio & Ocho Rios) where I have performed several venues and events so far. Most notably, Portland Jamfest, where I was backed by the F Major backing band. I am about to record my next single at Inna de Yard, featuring the legendary Earl Chinna Smith on lead guitar. Which I will be releasing Spring 2018.
I will be returning to Toronto, Canada in the Spring and will be available for booking throughout Spring & Summer months of 2018.
