About The Band Perry

More than just a country music group, The Band Perry mix their musical tradition with pop and rock to create a truly modern sound. Lead singer, guitarist and pianist Kimberley Perry is ably supported by her younger brothers, who make up the band. Reid plays the bass guitar, whilst Neil not only plays the drums but the mandolin and accordion too.

Born in Mississippi but brought up in Mobile, Alabama, Kimberley's powerful vocals were first heard with a band when she was only 15. And although her brothers had not yet reached their teens, they were soon heavily involved, acting as roadies for their big sister. The boys then went on to form their own double act called Mobile Music Machines in honour of their home town. Though the pair often opened for their big sister, they soon realised that they could be stronger as a three-person band. Following a childhood of singing together and making music, they formalised the founding of The Band Perry in 2005 by joining the New Faces of Country tour.

Having been brought up on a musical mix of their mother's passion for traditional country and their father's love for The Rolling Stones, the band's unique sound soon saw their profile begin to rise. The tour brought them to the attention of Garth Brooks' manager. Loving the faultless harmonies and natural song-writing talents of the band, Bob Doyle soon organised studio time for The Band Perry. The newly established Republic Nashville label quickly realised the potential of the trio, signing them in 2009 before releasing Hip to My Heart as a first single. Following the success of their debut release, The Band Perry's eponymous first album came out in October 2010.

One of the biggest country hits of the year, the self-titled album featured the hit singles, If I Die Young, All Your Life and You Lie. The former reached No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Songs in addition to making it to the top 20 of the Hot 100, before going on to be certified a quadruple-platinum hit. With the success of their first album keeping them busy in the public eye throughout 2011, the band did not get a chance to start work on the follow-up until 2012. Produced in part by Rick Rubin, Pioneer was released in April 2013 and supported by the singles Better Dig Two and Done.
