Durham rapper’s EP gets positive press


Durham native, rapper Joanna Perricone’s first EP, “The Wave Series,” a 5-track album released April 30 came out to positive reviews.

According to a review by Lindsay Boyle that appeared in the New Haven Register and the Middletown Press, Perricone’s biggest theme is “keeping it real.” The review praises her autobiographical, engaging lyrics, “often laid over intelligent guitar riffs,” Boyle wrote.

Perricone strives to relate to and connect with listeners through her hip-hop music. Her music has been compared with slam poetry – which is what inspired her to begin making music.

Perricone, who was previously featured in Town Times, works with Gateway Financial Partners, a job she obtained after performing a rap as part of a job interview. Perricone performs regularly at open mic nights throughout the state. For more information about Perricone as well as videos of her performances, visit www.joannaperricone.com/
