Indie darlings weave creative lyrics, driving rhythms, and uncommon rock instruments, including a glockenspiel and cello, into a tremendously magnetic performance

  • This idiosyncratic trio brings playfulness and experimentation to their performances, whether they’re performing  upbeat Americana in New York subway stations or penning medleys of Will Smith music.
  • In 2011 they released Killing the Darlings, an inventive album that ranges from the ethereal single “Prodigal Daughter,” to fast-paced “Reverend” which, according to Filter magazine, is “a perfect example of their zero to 60 music style that gets you tapping your toes and clapping your hands.”
  • The 3 members of Pearl and the Beard—Jocelyn Mackenzie, Emily Hope Price, and Jeremy Styles—met at open-mics in New York City.
  • The band has opened for Brandi Carlile, Ani DiFranco, and Ingrid Michaelson.
  •  “They transcend genre. It’s indie folk music, but it’s also infused with blues hollers, the occasional jazz riff, and a deep passion for the material.”—The Boston Globe
  • Folk-pop quartet Bombadil creates “intricate wordplay and grand, resonant male harmonies that evoke Neutral Milk Hotel and the Proclaimers. It’s a wild but deft union of influences: bluegrass, rock, hip-hop, hymns” (TimeOut New York). In 2013 they released their fourth album, Metrics of Affection.
