Pearla working on debut LP, shares 2 new songs, playing Rockwood Music Hall
NYC folk singer Pearla (aka Nicole Rodriguez) released a debut EP in early 2017 (which appears to be mostly gone from the internet), followed by the “Somewhere” single in late 2017, and now she’s working on her first full-length album with producer Tyler Postiglione (of Strange Loops and Rektagon) and mixer/producer Phil Joly (who’s worked with The Strokes, Lana Del Rey, Ryan Adams, and more). She’s also got two new songs out, “Forgive Yourself” and “Pumpkin,” both of which are gorgeous doses of delicate, airy, bare-bones folk. She has long cited artists like Joni Mitchell, Conor Oberst, and Laura Marling as influences, and if you like those artists, there’s a good chance Pearla’s music will be up your alley as well. Stream the two new songs and “Somewhere” below.
Pearla has just one upcoming date at the moment, a hometown show on November 4 at Rockwood Music Hall (Stage 2). Tickets are on sale.
