Pearl and the Beard: Voice in My Throat
Pearl and the Beard is three voices, one cello, one guitar, one glockenspiel, one melodica, several drums, one accordion, ninety-six teeth, and one soul.
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.
Today’s track comes from Pearl and the Beard’s 2009 release “God Bless Your Weary Soul, Amanda Richardson”. They have also just released a four song EP on Family Records called ‘Black Vessel’ which they are currently touring around, having just completed dates at CMJ. You can download the title track and view video of a stirring performance at the Black Vessel EP site.
