BREAKING OUT - One of the music acts I am the most excited to see in Nashville this year is Midnite On Pearl Beach. The Chicago-by-way-of-Louisiana band have a really fantastic pop sensibility, an even better sense of rhythm and flow - and at the heart of it all are the vocals and creative wit of Justin Jahnke.. a gifted, vastly under-celebrated musician who has definitely made my life better the last few years. Now it's your turn..
A mainstay on my weekly radio program, these layered tracks provide cinematic backdrops for listeners - one after the next; an almost impossible feat when most people aren't constructing records any longer. The upcoming LP, Scrowlers, is set for release this fall. Get ready to be blown away by this band in their first ever Outlaw Roadshow appearance on Saturday 7/18.
"We are pushers of the rock 'n roll junk cart, purveyors of dusty soul, and peddlers of hazy psychedelia, " writes Jahnke in our email about the band's set in Nashville. "Midnite on Pearl Beach is alive, real, and deep."
The Outlaw Roadshow is absolutely free to the public (ticket giveaways begin soon!) July 17 & 18 at the Mercy and High Watt in downtown Nashville. New artists announced each day!
