Pearl and the Beard Performs at Capitol Center for the Arts Spotlight Café Tonight
Brooklyn, New York based trio Pearl and the Beard brings their genre-bending sound to the Capitol Center for the Arts Spotlight Café as part of the On The Edge series tonight, February 21, at 7:30pm. The group's three-part vocal harmonies and eclectic instrumentation, featuring a mix of cello, guitar, glockenspiel, and drums, has been heard on NPR's World Café and earned the group opening spots for singer-songwriters Ani DiFranco and Ingrid Michaelson. Tickets for this intimate performance are on sale now and start at $15.
Former strangers Jocelyn Mackenzie, Emily Hope Price, and Jeremy Styles were united in the great city of New York. Each had migrated there from a far corner of the nation with naught but food in their pockets and money in their bellies. Each had the same true love. Since then, the three have nested, and their unique brand of brightly melodic songcraft continues to blossom of its own accord.
The band's genre-bending and expectation-defying sound has since burst the trio out of the confines of the New York music scene, allowing them to traipse the United States on a multitude of national tours and across the pond for a hugely successful inaugural UK tour in 2011. They've caught the attention of The Boston Globe, Filter Magazine, The Wall Street Journal and thousands of wildly dedicated fans both local and international. Their haunting music video for "The Lament of Coronado Brown" even made its debut on NPR's acclaimed music site, All Songs Considered.
Pearl and the Beard's live show is like nothing you've ever experienced. The band captivates their audience from first note to last, leaving fans and press alike completely engrossed in the world they've created with their soaring and sensual songs. From subway platform to park to field to brightly lit venue stage, Pearl and the Beard take over whatever space they occupy, including the people occupying it with them, prompting The Wall Street Journal to comment "...as Pearl and the Beard joyfully belted... to a growing crowd on the [subway] platform... commuters missed their trains to stay and listen, unsure what was happening-only that it was a New York moment not to be missed."
Pearl and the Beard loves you the way you've always been... and it's quickly becoming clear that wherever they go, the feeling is mutual.
