Acoustic soloist Perrie Kitching will perform live at the Daytona Beach Bandshell on Friday at 7 p.m. as the opening act for Alex Kinsey and Awesome Karma. The concert is free.
Perrie Kitching was born in DeLand and started playing guitar at age 13. Self-taught, Kitching started writing songs and singing them with his guitar by age 15. As a troubled youth, he chose music as an escape route to defeat poverty.
At age 18, Kitching started playing for local business owners in exchange for donations. He then saved some money, cut his first demo, and hit the road gigging state-to-state. At age 20, he moved to Atlanta where he finished school as an Internet marketer.
Using the Internet, he was discovered by major producers. Kitching went on to cut his first major recordings, and the international media attention boosted his exposure. Now Kitching and his Grammy-winning production team are in the works of releasing his first album.
