Sounds Of Secret Stages 2018: Pearl Charles

While I may not be there in body, my mind and heart will be away down south in Dixie this weekend. Why, you may ask? Well, it's Secret Stages, y'all! August 3-4 sees this boutique festival take over Birmingham once again, bringing together sounds from all ends of the spectrum. If you're in the vicinity, you should absolutely stop what you're doing and go see some folks do their thing. I've put together a shortlist of some artists I'd make time for if I was at the festival, and I hope you'll check them out regardless of whether you're in Alabama this weekend or not.

"It all feels so familiar/like we've lived this life before," Pearl Charles opines in the shimmering desert country pop nugget "All The Boys." The feeling of shared memories inhabit corners of her music, saturated with sunshine and restless yearning. This LA woman has a supple set of pipes that fits her songs so very well, playfully captivating and incredibly dynamic. I'm quite sure that Pearl's modern bohemian chanteuse appeal is even more enchanting in person.
