"T.T. The Bears Place"

This installment comes sraight from last night’s gig at TT the Bear’s Place, headlined by the appropriately forgettable Forget the Girl. The real interest was to be had from the night’s opener, who may well be Boston’s countrified answer to Fiona Apple: Katy Pearson. Although her live act needs some significant tightening (and perhaps some fresh blood in the backing band), the Berklee graduate showed off some impressive songwriting chops, especially on hook-heavy number “Call the Doctor”. Sometimes she strays a little too far into the extraordinary machine’s territory (“She was just a phase,” insists Pearson. “The Decemberists are really my main influence”), but for the most part delivers a set strong on intelligence and short on the pretension that sometimes affects Apple.
So the night delivered from two ends of the spectrum: give Pearson a couple of years to mature out in L.A. (she’s moving there to “try to make it happen”) and either some time for her band to improve or for new members to come into the fold, add a solid producer and you’ve got the next female singer-songwriter phenom - it’s not even a question of “if”, but of “when”. - gogrey.net

Bio

Bearkat is songwriter and ukulele enthusiast Katy Pearson. With a sound that has been compared to Leslie Feist, Tom Waits, The Ditty Bops and more, Katy is taking the indie folk pop scene by storm with her quirky songwriting,clever arrangements, uncanny instruments and unbelievable vocal style. Perhaps it's her love of French culture or her Russian heritage that makes Bearkat's music unique. Maybe it was her exposure to a plethora of different music at a very early age. Whatever it may be, there is something very special about this Bearkat character. She has crafted a charmingly clever world through her music, that you will want to visit over and over again.
