    Pearl Charles

    Psychedelic

    Pearl Charles lives in the moment, seeking excitement whether it leads her down a dark, dusty road or into the

    arms of a trouble-making lover. Her full-length debut album, Sleepless Dreamer, describes late night revelry,

    love affairs, running away and running towards, serenading the sunrise through whirlwind stories of her native

    Los Angeles, the city, the canyon, the desert, and the road. On a quest to discover the truest version of herself,

    Charles embraces the feeling of not being settled, a person who always restlessly wants more from life and is

    willing chase it, wherever it may lead her.

    Sleepless Dreamer finds her soulful, often sultry voice gliding through songs tinged with cosmic Americana, a

    little disco, some classic rock & roll, and a whole lot of that smooth AM gold. Passion, psychedelics and

    heartbreak inform the highs and lows she rides through the album. Finally able to see clearly through the

    smoke and mirrors of her surroundings, Charles departs on a consequent journey of questioning and soulsearching,

    eventually hitting the road in the inevitable search for answers.

    As heard in the title track, themes of disillusionment and subsequent realization run through to the album.

    Examined through the lens of relationships, whether it be the one between her and a lover, a friend, a city, the

    road, the world, or perhaps most importantly, herself, each experiences helps to shape her developing

    perspective and worldview.

    On “All The Boys,” she contemplates the cyclical nature of toxic attraction. Funky stand-out “Night Tides” looks

    at the illusion a person presents in the beginning of a romance, only to reveal their true colors once they’ve

    lured you in. She recognizes the pattern of being drawn to a tempting yet toxic muse over and over, but admits

    it fuels her creatively.

    While many of the songs revolve around romance, they are juxtaposed with more existential/philosophical

    tracks like “Ghost” and “Only In America”, examining the meaning of life and what plagues her generation of

    disaffected youth.

    Arriving January 2018 on Kanine Records, Sleepless Dreamer was produced and engineered by Kenny Woods

    (formerly of Beck) at the Haas Brothers studio in West Adams, CA. After working together on some covers for

    Aquarium Drunkard’s Lagniappe Sessions series last summer, Charles knew Woods was the right person to

    collaborate with on her full-length album.

    Enlisting an all-star band of friends, the album features the work of Father John Misty’s Chris Dixie Darley

    (guitar), Dan Bailey (drums), Eli Thompson (bass), and David Vandervelde (guitar), Darian Zahedi (guitar) of

    CRX, Connor “Catfish” Gallaher (pedal steel) of Calexico, Drew Erickson (keys) of Roger Waters, and Maxim

    Ludwig (guitar). Additional writing collaborators include Stephen McBean (Black Mountain), Jonathan Rice,

    Jonathan Tyler (Nikki Lane), Carrick Moore-Gerety, and Brian Harding.

    Charles has been playing music since she was five years old. At 18, she formed country duo The Driftwood

    Singers with Christian Lee Hutson, singing and playing guitar and autoharp. At 22, she joined garage rock band

    The Blank Tapes as drummer. After two fun-filled years immersed in the rock and roll lifestyle, she decided it

    was time to pursue her own songwriting, and began developing the songs that formed 2015’s eponymous

    debut EP on Burger Records. Her music career has been a chronological progression from old time music to

    60’s garage and psychedelia, and now more 70’s country rock and 80’s smooth rock. Drawn to catchy, poppy

    hooks and choruses, Charles draws on what she loves about each era while developing her unique style as a

    musician, singer, and songwriter.
