Lately I've been really digging Pearl and the Beard, a Brooklyn NY based trio that specializes in a soulful american sort of sounds that just seems perfect for summer.

To enter to win a CD, please leave me a comment and your email address. The contest will be open all weekend, and a winner will be chosen on Monday, July 4th at random. Good luck!!

I do genuinely like the music, and am not getting paid to promote them- just a copy of the CD as well.
