"Slow-core band's 'lullaby stuff' catching on"

“Pearson has carved out a local niche as a slow-core band -- playing intimate, slow and sparse folk music in the vein of indie artists like Sufjan Stevens, Low, and Julie Doiron”

"Pearson's music is lonely sure, but its simple melodies and harmonies are also comforting." - Star Phoenix

"Wintertime Soundtrack"

“Echoes of Elevator to Hell, Julie Doiron and Canada’s East Coast indie-folk scene interweave Pearson’s music.”

“Powerful harmonies, melodic finger-picking, lightly fuzzed-out guitars and a mixture of sad ballads and blessed-out rock tunes.”

“Pearson is essentially writing Saskatchewan winter soundtrack music: stark, calming and mildly trance inducing.”
- The Sheaf

LP -Clear Thinking on Mixed Feelings (2008)



All once members of a multitude of Saskatoon punk rock bands throughout the days, months, and years of the past and present tense, Pearson is the collective and collected efforts of three young gentlemen, and one lovely lady, to say exactly what they mean (and mean exactly what they say). Having had a bit of a look around the world, Pearson came to the the conclusion that hiding oneself (and most especially one's inner life, the parts of the whole that make us all wholly worthwhile) behind the all-too-easily conjured barriers of irony and sarcasm was, in a word, Bullshit. Henceforth, they declared a war; a war of slow-core lullabys and love songs, of melody and harmony. Earnest and heartfelt, quiet and slow. Maybe war is entirely the wrong word. Yes, yes it is.
