Founder of communications agency, Quite Great, Pete Bassett has contacted us to tell us about a quite remarkable artist who is defying odds to bring happiness to others at a time of great concern for everyone.
“At a time of deep concern across the world it reminds me of the importance music and spirituality in bringing confidence and guidance to the world. I recently had a meeting with a man who has conquered so many fears and inspired so many people I thought it relevant to highlight his name and the great work he has been doing even in the face of huge personal tragedy including most recently a stroke. Yet this has not stopped the amazing Glenn Perry from embracing every means possible to spread peace and harmony through music. We met in what now seems to be a different life time on a wonderful sunny day in the centre of London’s then bustling Covent Garden and a few months before his brain stroke and the subsequent initiation of his astonishing ‘Brain Stroke Challenge 125’ .
I sat sharing a black coffee and a herbal tea with this great man whilst he explained to me his musical path, a path that was purely outward looking , that did not relate to any selfish reasons for embarking on his musical mission , but only focused on what music can do for others. He outlined his message passionately a message through music that on the one hand could enchant those simply looking to gain relaxation through music and meditation but on the other send a personal message of comfort to those struggling to come to terms with mental health issues and other physical obstacles. Little did I know that all these months later , his music and his vision would be so important on a global scale.
Now with Glenn Perry communicating with us from his hospital bed during a time when others would only be thinking about themselves and their own road to recovery , the message he outlined fitted perfectly with some of the titles of the music he played me, including the likes of ‘Amazing’ , ‘You’re Beautiful’ and ‘Aloha’ a link to the latter I just had to put within this outline and a song that over the past two years has garnered over three million views and no wonder when you consider the beauty and poignancy of it’s narrative https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YLXjvgmfUfg , a narrative that could lift the spirits of the world at a time when we need it most with both the melody of the South Sea Islands mixed with the tropical vibes of the West Indies.
As I think back to that first meeting and now to the traumatic times Glenn has come through over the past few months communicating with us from afar with my team fearing sad news, we should have know better , as this is a guy who takes every negative and turns it into a positive a thousand times over hence from his hospital bed he is again aiming to bring the world together with his new music , I would suggest you read and experience this feature to feel the love and the spirit Glenn projects everywhere he goes https://www.khaleejtimes.com/citytimes/dubai-based-glenn-perry-pens-song-for-coronavirus-victims .
Now we are so, so proud to have been contacting by Glenn at the start of the week with the aim of accompanying him and his close team on the next stage of his journey and in our weekly interactions with him we will be mapping out a road that he is upon and the guidance he will be bringing so if you wish to follow us down that road we are sure will bring you enlightenment and harmony as well”.
