Fernando Perdomo on Jon Anderson: "I've Been a Yes Fan Since I Was a Child ... He's a Huge Influence"

Via facebook.com/FernandoPerdomoMusic

Fernando Perdomo was once one of South Florida's own, an omnipresent musician, local entrepreneur, and singer-songwriter who made an indelible mark on the local scene.

He relocated to L.A. in June 2012, following the death of his mother and the sale of his family home, which also housed his recording studio.

Fortunately, his ties to our environs remain strong, enough for us to justify continuing to call him a homeboy.

Nevertheless, the move seems to have opened up a host of opportunities, both in terms of performing, recording, and producing.

There is his just-released solo single entitled "Photographers in Love." And, with his previous band Dreaming in Stereo now on hiatus, he's working with a new outfit called Records and Tapes.

Meanwhile, Perdomo, along with fellow Miamian Chris Price, has also produced a new album by cult psychedelic folk singer Linda Perhacs, entitled The Soul of All Natural Things, due in 2014 on Sufjan Stevens' Asthmatic Kitty Records label.

Yet, that's not all Perdomo has etched in in his to-do list; in addition to a forthcoming European tour, he also reports that he's busy producing several acts, among them, a garage rock band called Little Dove, a new project by Alana Chirino, ex-Menudo Singer Robert Avellanet, Grammy Nominated singer songwriter Alih Jey, and one woman band Nicole Marcus. Clearly, he knows how to diversify. And how to multi-task as well.

"All this production led me to turn down being asked to join English Beat," Perdomo claims. "I got that offer because I became a regular at the prestigious Canters Kibbitz Room Tuesday night Jam, along with members of Heart, TSOL, English Beat, and Warren Zevon Band."
