About The Event

 As a native of New Orleans’ 9th Ward, Perrier has strong roots in traditional gospel, with leanings toward funk rhythms and soulful lyrics. Perrier’s career is an impressive list of collaborations, including her work with Gramatik, Wacka Flocka Flame, Montreal-producer Anomalie, gospel pianist and vocalist Davell Crawford, gospel legend Craig Adams and basque rock artist Fermin Muguruza. 

“A Day Like Today” features performances by Nigel Hall of the funk band Lettuce as well as John Culbreth and Nick Ellman of the jazz and funk sextet Naughty Professor. The song was produced by Andrew Block, an R&B guitarist who has also spent time touring with Gramatik. An angelic hum–reminiscent of a harmonic church choir–begins the song, quickly leading into a funky beat accompanied by Ellman’s uplifting saxophone, Hall’s gospel-inspired keyboard work and the powerful gravitas of Perrier’s voice.
