About the Artist
Perry Silverbird is a sensitive, yet powerful young man, peaceful and meditative; characteristics which shine through in his music. He calls it free spirit music, the message of God by way of his flute, his drum, and his voice. It is his father who gave Perry Silverbird his name, the Gentle Flute Poet.
A fourth generation performer, Perry Silverbird has been a musician since the age of seven. This is his first solo release, although his melodious native flute is also heard on The World in Our Eyes: A Native American Vision of Creation. The masterful double compact disk and double cassette was produced and narrated by Perry’s father, J. Reuben Silverbird, who is also the producer of The Blessing Way. The two men have a close relationship, father guiding son, in the Native American tradition.
Because he and his family were always on the road, Silverbird was able to meet people from different cultures and backgrounds. These experiences found their way into his music, creating a sound that appeals to a broad range of people. His Native American heritage has also been a driving force in his music and his strong tie with this legacy, as well as with nature, can be clearly seen throughout his works.
