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 soul-searching, eventually hitting the road in the inevitable search for answers.
About Lauren Barth: Lauren Barth has a pension for writing catchy songs that straddle the line between pop, Americana, and folk, bringing to mind artists like Sheryl Crow, Liz Phair, and Lucinda Williams. This can be heard on Barth’s new album Forager which was released this past May on Tulsa’s Horton Records. The album captures the sparse landscape of Oklahoma with plenty of twang, and its songs are often laid back as a sort of subtle salute to the Tulsa Sound put on the map by the likes of JJ Cale and others.
