'So On’ is the much awaited new album from singer songwriter Kevin Pearce who released his debut album ‘Dynamite’ in 2014, to much applause and praise, which also featured guest collaborations with members of Turin Brakes and Tom Mcrae.
Born in Essex Kevin explains “Growing up in Essex I often found it hard to find young artists that appealed to my musical tastes, especially as the only local venue was principally involved in promoting music of heavier varieties (though thankfully now the Mod craze seems to have hit and I can drink amongst several like-minded confidants).” especially as he looking elsewhere for his inspirations, “There seemed to be a golden age of songwriters and singers around the early to mid 1970’s such as Tim Buckley, Nick Drake, Leonard Cohen, John Martin and Neil Young. I think for me those guys are the blue print of greatness.”
Kevin since has attracted a loyal and active fanbase, having already supported the likes of Beth Orton, Saul Williams, Tom Mcrae and Turin Brakes, as well as playing an impressive array of solo shows. has already received praise from numerous well-regarded publications including The Independent, MOJO, Uncut and Q to name but a few. He is performing a UK tour around the release of So On, culminating in a gig at the inimitable Green Note in London, the heart of the city’s folk, blues, and roots scene.
His recently released single “Maria Come Home” from ’So On’ is an ode to the tragic life of the late, great Soprano Maria Callas, opera’s first international superstar. Pearce explains “it was written after being frozen still whilst first hearing her voice and further reading about her life, which was as incredible as it was troubled.” Renowned for a playful theatricality and a masterful sense of atmosphere, Pearce matches his melancholy vocals with a delicate bittersweet melody to create a track that is heartfelt, intimate and euphoric.
