John Perinbam is a Scottish-born Canadian recording artist, singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist best known for his work with recording duo Gravelle-Perinbam. He's also the lead singer of Ottawa's Enforcer and the founder of Canadian heavy metal legends Ivory Knight!

John's music encompasses and incorporates influences from various styles including pop, rock, hard rock, progressive, and heavy metal.

"John has a great powerful voice which fits the music like a glove and he switches seamlessly between clean and melodic vocals to a harsh and rough vocal persona. John’s solo debut is filled to the brim with great powerful, yet quite catchy metal." - Janne Stark, Stark Music Reviews


John plays several instruments including drums, bass guitar, keyboards, piano, and guitar.
