About


The past year couldn’t have been much better for Louisville Americana-Rock group, Nellie Pearl. Their debut LP, Lonesome No More!, funded by a successful Kickstarter campaign raising $10,000+ in album pre-sales, has brought many accolades. The single, “Live/Die”, was featured on Spotify’s official Pulse of Americana playlist helping garner almost 300,000 plays, as well as being added into regular rotation at AAA radio stations across the states and hitting the Top 200 for both commercial and non-comm charts. This kind of success has led to being added to the line-ups of several music festivals and remarkable shows, including Wildwood Revival, Savannah Stopover, and Moonshiner’s Ball, supporting artists such as Gillian Welch, Houndmouth, and Shovels & Rope. Nellie Pearl’s press write-ups and premieres have included Paste Magazine, BLURT magazine, and Huffington Post, while placing on the Top 100 albums of 2016 lists for several AAA radio stations and winning Louisville Music Awards’ Album of the Year. With an electrifying live show that leaves the audience in awe with diverse and powerful performances, Nellie Pearl is gearing up for extensive touring in 2017.
