Pebble To Pearl Bio/Links:
Pebble to Pearl (P2P) creates a unique blend of funk, rock, fierce and powerful blues fused and delivered with soulful grooves and incomparable vocals. They display a tapestry of sound that will truly captivate, mesmerize, and send chills down your spine, while undeniably keeping you entertained and dancing. P2P is road bound, touring up and down the East Coast to venues like the House of Blues in Orlando to the Canal Room in NYC.
They have no boundaries with visible influences from legends like Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Tina Turner, and Chaka Khan, to the new generation powerhouses ranging from Beyonce and Rihanna, to Joss Stone and Lenny Kravitz. Their self-entitled EP, debuted in March 2018, holds no bounds in blending a combination of funky blues rock with hard hitting and flawless vocals. If you haven't seen them in action, you are missing a key note in the chromatic scale. They throw in everything but the kitchen sink into their show and leave a lasting impression and the need for wanting more.
