Über Elvis Perkins
Elvis Perkins was born in Manhattan to actor Anthony Perkins and photographer Berenthia "Berry" Berenson. Raised in Los Angeles, Perkins took up music at an early age and learned the guitar, studying under Prescott Niles, the bassist for the Knack. Perkins began composing music and poetry in high school and derived his abandoned yet hopeful sound after losing both his parents to tragedy, Anthony to AIDs and Berry during the September 11th attacks. His debut album Ash Wednesday reminisces this bittersweet chronicle through his plaintive tenor and sentimental harmonies.
