100% Free Christina Perri Albums, Music and Songs
Christina Perri was born in Bensalen, Pennsylvania, which is a suburb of Philadelphia. She was really motivated to get involved in the music scene because of her older brother. Christina’s older brother Nick Perri is a famous guitarist that actually has played for bands like Shinedown, Silvertide, Perry Farrell, and a few others. She saw this, and took it upon herself to learn how to play music. At the age of 16, she watched Shannon Hoon on a videotape who was the guitar player of Blind Melon, and taught herself how to play the guitar, this is just the beginning for what will most likely be a huge musical career for Christina Perry, music runs in her blood.
Once she grew up, Christina Perri actually moved to Los Angeles on her 21st birthday. She got married later on in the year and started to work on producing music videos. She quickly started to break into the industry by doing things like this. But, about a year and a half after she got married, it ended in divorce and to make things easier, she actually moved back to Philadelphia so that she could focus on things a little bit better.
Moving back to Philadelphia gave Christina Perri time to start focusing on her music career and she actually wrote her first album while she was back at home. That album was Jar of Hearts, and once that was done, she figured out that she had to move back to Los Angeles where she waited tables during the day and worked on recording her music at night. This was true dedication as she sacrificed a lot so that she was able to record her music, living in a city by herself that had previously brought her a lot of heart ache and trouble.
The biggest break thus far for Christina Perri came from when her song “Jar of Hearts” was used on the hit show So You Think You Can Dance. Immediately following her performance, she started to grow in popularity. This song was downloaded digitally with more than 48,000 copies and actually made it onto the Billboard Digital Songs chart. Soon, it was a hit and was being played on VH1 once she started to record her music video. This was just what she needed to get her start and to hit the music scene to hopefully make it big with the break that she needed.
Today, Christina Perri is still working hard on her music career. She actually has a 5 song EP that has been recorded and was released in November of 2010. This EP was named The Ocean Way Sessions. Hopefully soon, we’ll see a full length album from Christina, but people are caught up in her songwriting and guitar playing. There is no doubt that there is much more we will see from Christina Perri and she has a lot to offer the world with her songs. Going out and taking a risk is going to pay off for Christina Perri, just watch her!
