Biography

Seattle, Washington, US (2008 – present)

Mike Hadreas, also known as Perfume Genius is a singer/songwriter from Seattle, Washington, US. Perfume Genius began when he moved from New York to his mother’s home in Everett, WA. In these relatively isolated conditions, Hadreas felt a compulsion to make music and began composing fragile yet brutally honest songs on the piano. By 2008 he had set up a MySpace page and began offering his music there, along with similarly spare and evocative homemade music videos. Turnstile released the single Mr. Peterson — the tale of a suicidal, pedophile high-school teacher — in 2009. Perfume Genius’ full-length debut, Learning, which presented its tracks in the order in which they were recorded, arrived and released on June 21, 2010.

    Indie isn't a fucking genre. Perfume Genius is on an indie label. This is definitely indie, you morons.

    Absolutely enchanting live. He left me speechless. I got chills, I teared up, and I felt an overwhelming sense of warmth from the audience -- who as a whole, truly embraced him. Love<3
