Michael Perry and The Long Beds
Perry began writing songs in the early 1990s during long nights when he was struggling to survive on prose (he is the author of numerous books including: Population 485, Truck, The
Scavengers, and the New York Times bestseller Visiting Tom). With no arts background (he has a nursing degree) he found himself drawn especially to the work of poets and singer/songwriters. (In interviews Perry tends to list his greatest literary influences as Dylan Thomas and Steve Earle  and not necessarily in that order.) I remember writing late one night
and hearing a Kevin Welch song with the line, I whiskeyd up my coffee cup... sittin here tryin not to call you up, says Perry, and I was floored by the rhythm and the story in that single
line... He began writing songs as a way to break up all-night typing sessions, and eventually he had enough of them that a musician friend invited him to play a coffee shop. Im not saying I was nervous, but I ripped out a sixty-minute set list in thirty-two minutes flat, says Perry. By 2004, he had begun recruiting Long Beds. In 2006, he released his first album, Headwinded.
