Perry was born in Santa Barbara, California. The middle child of two pastors, she grew up listening to gospel music and singing in church.

In an article for Blender Magazine, Perry stated she wasn’t “a typical Christian”, mentioning that she had done a “lot of bad things” during her adolescence. Among her musical influences are Queen, The Beach Boys, Heart, Joni Mitchell, Paul Simon, and Alanis Morissette.

In her early career she toured churches and released a gospel album in the U.S. under the name Katy Hudson.

At the age of 17, Perry began working with legendary producer and songwriter Glen Ballard. Her songs captured the attention of Virgin Records CEO Jason Flom, the head of Capitol Music Group.

I'm not sure if you're really one of those modern pop artists who makes music worth anything more than a top spot, but I can tell you that your songs are ridiculously catchy, and that your album just always makes me sing along. Also, your "Electric Feel" cover is primo :)

I love this girl. She really has a voice; I saw her perform a solo acoustic show a few years ago, before all the "Kissed a Girl" madness, and she just blew me away with her pipes. Give her a chance -- she's truly more than just a smokin' hot pop star.

Loved the "Electric Feel" cover. Not sure why people feel the need to leave negative comments. Should she go un-sing it for you? If you don't like it, don't bump it.

Hi again Katy, Haven't stopped playing your album. I have even copied the songs to my Nokia cell phone, so I can play at work and I love the title track "One Of The Boys". I hope that's your next single. Also, just downloaded "Hot n Cold (Manhattan Clique Remix) off iTunes. I love it, great mix. Hope your concert in Sacramento went well tonight. I was in Sacramento in September. A lovely city. Tried to get tickets for your February '09 UK tours. "SOLD OUT" everywhere : ( Oh well, hope to attend a concert one day. Take care xox

Hi Katy, bought your album here today in the UK and I love it. I especially love, "Hot n Cold", which the single is due for general release here in the UK on Monday November 24th. I also loved your previous hit, "I kissed a girl". Great music and a great voice. Good luck with your music career Katy and look forward to hearing more great songs from you soon. xox
