Nicole Rodriguez is a singer/songwriter always drawing inspiration from the road ahead. Recording and performing under the name Pearla, the young artist recently released a debut EP, If You’re Not Alright Now, which had tastemakers comparing her stylings to Alanis Morisette and Ani DiFranco.
Now, Pearla is getting ready to unveil a standalone single, “Somewhere,” a bold new step forward that blends the more natural sounds of her previous statement with Sylvan Esso-style beats and electronics. The song, a collaboration with producer Jon Buscema, finds Pearla grappling with a sense of self that seems lost as it continues to develop.
Since the EP drop, Pearla has begun to establish herself in the NYC scene including a spotlight performance at The Wild Honey Pie’s The Beehive at Northside Festival.
