“Sweetness indeed! Sweet, indie, folk pop! We love it!”
Perez Hilton

“A joy to listen to… Pearl and the Beard make something you never thought to ask for, but find that you no longer want to live without.”
Paste Magazine

“They transcend genre. It’s indie folk music, but it’s also infused with blues hollers, the occasional jazz riff, and a deep passion for the material.”
The Boston Globe

“Neverland’s got nothing on the whimsical world constructed by Pearl and the Beard. The N.Y.C. based trio carries listeners on their backs through a DIY dreamland that is unpredictable yet safe and warm like the comfort of one’s own bed.”
Bust Magazine

“…As Pearl and the Beard joyfully belted their song “Reverend,” with its rolling beat and lilting harmonies, to a growing crowd on the [subway] platform… commuters missed their trains to stay and listen, unsure what was happening—only that it was a New York moment not to be missed.”
The Wall Street Journal

“Brooklyn trio Pearl and the Beard make sweet and soulful campfire folk, but when they play live, they add in a jolt of quirk that takes their music to the next level.”
Nylon Magazine

“New York born trio Pearl and the Beard are not your typical ensemble. Just listen to our premiere of their tune, “Reverend,” and you will see what we mean. Combining cello, guitar, glockenspiel, drums, accordion and multiple vocal harmonies, Pearl and the Beard doesn’t seem to be copying anyone’s style right now. “Reverend” is a perfect example of their zero to sixty music style that gets you tapping your toes and clapping your hands.”
Filter Magazine

“Sweet, gentle and scrumptious, the music of Brooklyn trio Pearl and the Beardconjures up lazy summer afternoons at just the time we need that kind of thing most. The group consists of just three soul… but its sophisticated vocal harmonies and crafty arrangements make a big impression.”
Time Out New York

“Thank goodness Jocelyn Mackenzie, Emily Hope Price and Jeremy Styles found each other — the three New Yorkers who make up Pearl and the Beard are really onto something special. Individually, each possesses a warm, resonant voice that delights the listener; when articulated in harmonic accord, these voices blend in a breathtaking way. They exercise these rousing, rich vocals in songs that are extraordinarily engaging, at times emotive and sweeping, at others light and jubilant. Think of the band as a more percussive, amped-up version of The Low Anthem — its songs are as beautiful, alternately breaking the heart and putting it back together. Yet, Pearl and the Beard is much more prone to meander into upbeat folk and world sounds, incorporating instruments such as glockenspiel, accordion, melodica and cello into its guitar-and-percussion-driven tunes.”
Columbia Daily Tribune

“The Brooklyn, NY-based trio Pearl and the Beard are known for infusing a little happiness into their dark and alluring folk songs.”
