New Album & European Tour

Well I'm super excited and anxious to record my next studio album AND go my first MONTH LONG European tour in June!

ALBUM:   This album is a long time coming.  I have some of the funds, but just need a little help getting the ends met!   I want to do it PROPER!   I'm planning on recording at Custom Recording Company in Crete, IL.  This album will be recorded with live takes, something I've always wanted to try and will use some classic analog recording and mixing machines!   Get an inside look at the recording studio here: Custom Recording Company

I'll be using some awesome players for this album including Zach Sweeney, Wayne Hancock's guitar player & Chris Casello - guitar and steel WIZARD!

EUROPEAN TOUR:  I was so flattered to be included for the lineup for Muddy Roots Europe, which is how a European tour was even a consideration! A HUGE thanks to my homie, Jason Galaz, for asking me on.  Jason is the man behind the Muddy Roots Organization - which is a family community of musicians, listeners, and supporters!  If you don't know---now you know!   VISIT THE LINK ABOVE AND COME OUT TO ONE OF THE US FESTS OR TO EUROPE IF YOU'RE SASSY!   Thank to Miss Liz Sloan, I've recrutied The Jet-Sons from Poland to be my backing band during this tour!  So grateful for them, especially Niko, as he is booking our dates out as well.   Take a look at our ReverbNation to see our tour dates booked thus far: Pearls ReverbNation Page!

Money is always going to be an issue, especially for musicians and artists who want to take their art on the road.  When faced with adversity, I can always find some hope in the situation. POSITIVE MENTAL ATTITUDE!!   I can definitely hustle up help and solutions if setbacks arise. After all, CHICAGO IS HUSTLE!!! And if you know me, you know my anthem is "Hustlin'" by Rick Ross ;)   But seriously, I'm happy to be a part of a community of musicians, singers, artists, and lovers of all things musical and artistic that really stick their neck out for each other and in reality serve as a family for one another----So supportive---I hope you'll all help me out here by donating and sharing this fundraiser!!!  We can make it happen!

Lil bio written about me:
Pearls started singing when she was just knee high to a grasshopper! Music was a part of her life from an early age, and church was the venue where her voice was first nurtured! As she matured she learned about the musical traditions of bluegrass gospel, country music, Appalachian music, and all things hillbilly. She found a connection with these styles and fused them with the vocal techniques she learned studying jazz, opera, and classical music. Singing is her first and long time love, and biggest passion in life. She continues to keep her music going by recruiting musicians from far and wide to play alongside her, in pursuit of comradery, musicianship, and spreading the love of all things musical to the masses!
