Following the release of her acclaimed 2021 album Magic Mirror, one of the US’ finest rising artists Pearl Charles has released her celestial new single, ‘Givin’ It Up’. Pearl will also return to the UK for run dates in February, including a show at Hoxton Hall in London on 5th February.
                               
                                A hazy trip, ‘Givin’ It Up’ was recorded in LA live to tape at Valentine Recording Studios and produced by Lewis Pesacov (Best Coast, Local Natives, FIDLAR). “The track is written by myself and my partner Michael Rault. Over coffee one morning at our house in the Joshua Tree desert, Michael sat down at our Rhodes piano and began composing the tune. Before we even had a chance to finish our coffee, ‘Givin’ It Up’ had emerged,’ Pearl said of the track. ‘The song describes the journey of a partnership - the fears that hold us back from accepting the love we all want and deserve in this life and the rewards that you reap from finally embracing and opening up to that love. Sometimes surrender yields the sweetest victory’. Listen to ‘Givin’ It Up’ HERE
                               
                                Pearl will bring her stunning show to the UK this February. Kicking off at Sunflower Lounge in Birmingham on the 1st, the run culminates with a date at London’s Hoxton Hall on February 5th. Tickets are available HERE.

                                Pearl 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 a drummer. After a few 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 and additional debut LP that came out in 2018 on Kanine Records. She has headlined national and international dates as well as shared the stage with contemporaries Best Coast, Sunflower Bean, Mac Demarco, Conor Oberst, etc, as well as festival plays like ACL, Huichica and Desert Daze.
                               
                                Her music career has been a chronological progression from old-time music to 60’s garage and psychedelia, and now more 70’s country and soft rock. Drawn to catchy, poppy hooks and choruses, Pearl draws on what she loves about each era while developing her unique style and voice as a musician, singer, and songwriter.
