Perry Rose is a Belgian-Irish singer who has been active in Belgium, France, Switzerland and Ireland since the release of Because of You in 1991. Rose, who comes from circus families on both his mother and father's side, has since recorded six albums and toured extensively.
At the end of 2001 Perry recorded Hocus Pocus in Belgium, Brittany and Ireland with Irish producers Graham Murphy and Chris O'Brien from The Production Suite in Dublin (whose credits include Dove, Clannad, Donna Lewis, The Human League, Trevor Horn, Aslan, Perry Blake, Maire Brennan, Picturehouse, Ronan Hardiman and Lord Of The Dance). It came out mid April 2002 in France, Switzerland and Belgium, on France's L'Oz Production label.
Guests on the album include French pianist Didier Squiban and Uileann piper Ronan le Bars (known for his work with l’Heritage des Celtes and Dan Ar Braz). It was followed by the live album Happy live recorded at the venerable Brussels venue l’Ancienne Belgique.
Rose has also recorded "Fly" for Didier Laloy / S-TRES, "Stop the pain" for Amnesty International, several traditional Irish tunes in the company of Trio Trad for their compilation Le Monde est un village and a reworked version of "Glasgow" for the CD Eveil aux langues (2005).
