“The mid-paced Master of Destruction, written by his son Jamie and containing the album’s most potent chorus, is stronger still.” The Guardian
“Jamie takes front-stage for his own song “Master Of Destruction” which is probably one of the album highlights to these ears”. Louder Than War
In 2021 Perrett moved centre-stage releasing his own, new material and touring the world under his own name.
Releasing his debut solo single “Masquerade of Love” to praise from the likes of Clash, Louder Than War, KEXP and Vive Le Rock, “Masquerade of Love” was a song with a nostalgic tint and a timeless feel that touched on New Wave-esque romanticism to 50s Doo-Wop and more.
“In Masquerade Of Love, Jamie Perrett has produced one of the most exciting debut singles of the year so far. The bright and infectious melody perfectly complements the driving rhythm and shimmering guitar, leading into a soaring and instantly memorable chorus” Louder than War
Perrett followed with the equally sublime single: “Angel of Santiago”. An upbeat track with a constant build up forming throughout. It brings an incredibly timeless feel, with a perfect clash of vocals.
