WORLD PREMIERE: Listen to Victor Perry (@perksofbeingvic) sing a gorgeous unplugged cover of @EBTG’s classic “Missing”

VICTOR PERRY, “Missing”

Georgia pop/R&B singer Victor Perry shows off two of his major talents in this stripped down cover of Everything But The Girl’s 1995 smash “Missing” – his slick ability as an interpreter and his beautiful high register.  Of course “Missing” is best known as a pop and dance hit thanks to an historic remix by Todd Terry, which transformed and reinvented the slower, more emotional acoustic original from the Amplified Heart album.  Victor turns it back down with piano for support (courtesy of dad/producer William Perry Jr.) and the result is very special, which Everything But The Girl/Tracey Thorn/Ben Watt fans will love, as Victor’s take conveys a similar emotional vibe to the original.  And just when you think that’s not enough, he lets his high register take off for most of the last minute of the song to give a gorgeous, long-lasting coda that you would have never expected.  And this all came about thanks to a Twitter chat Victor and I had about some of our favourite 90’s records:  I sent “Missing” his way, he fell in love with it, and voilà! 🙂  Thanks for running with it Victor and putting your own signature stamp on “Missing” 😀  Also be sure to check out Victor’s debut EP 4 AM Nostalgia.  Listen to “Missing” at the above link.
