Pearl and the Beard On the Hill Session at Kettle Pot Tracks
Pearl and the Beard…well, these kool kids were just so much fun to hang out with! Our chilly, sunny afternoon flew by with as many laughs as six people in a small room can create. Our friend, who happens to be a Pearl and the Beard superfan, came over to help shoot the session, and we were glad he was there.
…but the music? Their songs are well-written, interestingly (in a GREAT way) arranged, and emotionally performed. They sound and feel spot on! I can’t say we’ve heard anything quite like it, and though that statement might seem fraught, just the opposite is true: theirs is a genuinely new take with enough familiar elements to work perfectly for my brain.
We can’t wait until their new record comes out this summer: it promises to be excellent!
Enjoy Pearl and the Beard On the Hill!
So… When/why/how/where did Pearl and the Beard get started? That is to say, can you give us a comfortably-abridged bio? I want to ask about the name, but perhaps that’s for another time 🙂
We all met during two separate open mic nights – one in Brooklyn and one in Manhattan. Joce and Jeremy started writing together over one whole week and wrote a bunch of songs and then they met Emily a few months later. The storm began to brew and the songs were born!
Why did you choose these songs for On the Hill?
Our choice of songs for On The Hill was largely based on the acoustics of the room and what would record best or our favorite songs to perform. We like keeping our performances fun, spontaneous, and intense.
What else is going on in your world? What’s next?
We are releasing our new album BEAST on July 21. Keep your ears open!
