Jocelyn Mackenzie, Emily Hope Price, and Jeremy Styles were once three strangers, unconnected denizens of New York City’s bustling streets. Until the draw of one true musical love drew them together through the vast skyscraper caverns. No longer strangers, but one musical being made of “three voices, one cello, one guitar, one glockenspiel, one melodica, several drums, one accordion, ninety-six teeth, and one soul.”
Pearl and the Beard born from flung corners of the nation and married on a street corner in the center of the universe, it is no surprise the music they create is genre-bending and expectation-defying, deftly held together by bright melodic songcraft. The sweet and captivating result has made Pearl and the Beard favorites of fans on both sides of the Atlantic, including The Boston Globe, Filter Magazine, The Wall Street Journal and NPR’s All Songs Considered..
Fresh off a tour with the iconic Ani DiFranco, Pearl and the Beard are launching their first headlining national tour with support from Lucius. The inaugural show will be right here in Washington, DC this Thursday (11/29) at Rock-n-Roll Hotel.
