After providing lead vocals for the unsigned Boston band Averi, Chad Perrone is now flying solo with his debut album “Used to Dream”. While many would expect this record to sound much like a stripped down version of Averi, Perrone had something totally different in mind, he clearly set out to reinvent himself. This album makes it on raw emotion, emotion that is poured out on a level that has not been matched on any of Perrone’s previous work. It’s no wonder he’s called this his most personal record to date. From the soaring chorus of “What I’ve Become,” to the brilliantly written “Lie,” it would seem as if Perrone doesn’t know how to wear his heart anywhere else but on his sleeve. Also noteworthy is “Let You Sleep” a beautiful ballad, with strong chorus and unforgettable melodies. Perhaps the most impressive track on the record is “Somewhere Beside Me,” which finds Perrone reflecting on love lost with a great back beat, soaring vocals, and an incredibly addictive hook. While it’s unclear if Averi will be able to move on without Chad Perrone, after one listen to this record its clear that Chad Perrone will have no problem moving on without Averi.
