Blaq Pearl

So it helps to complain to the cosmos? after posting a niggle about a serious lack of wimin in live music , along came a chick with soul.

Blaq Pearl. Remember the name.

She found her way into music for the right reasons (she feels it. she believes in it) and though she's still finding her voice and her sound, she's no baby. watch her and watch out. she'll wrap you round her delicate fingers with a startlingly demure and feisty stage persona. her debut album is an easy blend of cape flats soul and funk, sprinkled with bits of R&B. i think the upbeat tracks are the ones that will carry her and her sly boys forward. She's living proof that Life's No Metaphor.
