"I saw Brother of Pearl perform at Cactus Records last weekend... Brother of Pearl’s sound fits nicely with the new wave of American folk rock music; if you are a fan of the Avett Brothers you’d see the same fine ingredients of good songwriting, fluid harmonies and showmanship in Brother of Pearl’s performances." - Donna McKenzie - Cumulus Media - 103.7 FM Music Scene (Houston)


"I think it's a great song [Hurricane Rose - "Draggin Around"] and have heard nothing but positive things about it. We played it for the first time the other day and the text message responses to our stations text line were all very good. One said you were the perfect mix of Old Crow Medicine Show and Stoney LaRue. Pretty positive!" - Jesse Walker (station manager) - The Red Dirt Rebel 105.3 KJDL


"We heard these guys performing on 90.1 KPFT (Houston), we liked it so much we called them to immediately bring their cd in for consignment! We suggest you not miss this in-store event." - Quinn Bishop (owner) - Cactus Music

Brother of Pearl, a band out of Houston, extract the better parts of country music and mix it up with a flair of folky/rock. Enhanced with raw harmonies, a fiddle, banjo, and three distinct voices, each song stands out on its own. And here’s the best part, you can listen to their full record “Draggin Around” here; however, I would suggest that you do yourself a favor and buy the album because I guarantee it’s exactly what your iPod is missing. Anyways, be sure to catch them this week at The House of Blues as they kick off their Texas tour. Enjoy! - literallyobsessed's blog

Bio

When Matt and Tyler thought about asking Josh, a first-year med student at the time, to play fiddle on a home-made EP they were putting together, they had no idea it would develop into such a flourishing song-writing partnership, much less a deep friendship.

Sharing enough similar influences such as The Band, Ryan Adams, and Creedence Clearwater Revival, the trio connected instantly and had a foundation to build upon with enough room to contribute their own unique styles.

Less than two months after it all began, they were opening at Stubb's BBQ in Austin for Drew Holcomb and by the end of the year had assembled a full band and were headlining the Firehouse Saloon in their hometown of Houston, drawing in crowds of over 300.

Within six months the trio felt it had enough material to begin work on their first album and were connected to well-respected producer Josh Moore (Derek Webb, Bun-B, Caedmon's Call) through a mutual friend. Work began immediately in the fall of 2010 and the trio now have released their full-length debut album "Draggin Around" in April of 2011.

With a unique vocal blend that leaves you nostalgic for an era you've never known and songs that leave you heartbroken for reasons you can't remember, take the advice of many others and go somewhere quiet and hear Brother of Pearl's "Draggin Around" for yourself.
