Watch former Journey’s Steve Perry covering Beach Boys’ “In My Room”:


Steve Perry was born in Hanford, January 22, 1949.  The American vocalist and songwriter was Journey’s lead singer from 1977 to 1987 and also from 1995 to 1998.

Steve has Portuguese ancestry having parents who came from the Azores (Ilha do Pico). Born and raised in Hanford at the age of 18, he moved to Los Angeles to pursue his dream of becoming a singer. Steve worked as a sound engineer and played in several local bands like “The Sullies” and “Ice and Pieces” while waiting for his big break, an opportunity in the music industry.

In 1977 a Demo tape from his Blues and Rock band called “Alien Project”, reached the hands of Herbie Herbert, who coincidentally was looking for a vocalist for Journey. “Alien Project” was dissolved when one of its members died in a car accident; Herbie contacted Steve and in mid-1977, Steve became the lead singer of Journey.

Steve received the nickname “The Voice” by fans, critics and fellow musicians for his strong, melodious voice that is able to reach high notes with great ease. He plays guitar, piano and drums, and cites Sam Cooke, Jackie Wilson and Marvin Gaye as his musical inspiration.

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
