New Album - Girls Like UsKatie Pearlman has assembled an all-star group of musicians for her third album, Girls Like Us. Girls Like Us is a concept album of songs about women, based on true stories from the book Note to Self, by Andrea Buchanan, of surviving hardship and heartache. This is definitely Katie's best collection of songs and her soulful vocals have gotten a bit sweeter. Perhaps the change of instrument (drums to guitar) has had an effect..., albeit for the better. One listener compared her to the late and honorable, Harry Chapin. On this album, Katie does what music does best...she offers inspiration during hard times.
Existing members; Jeff Pearlman (keys), Joe Cesare (elec. guitar), and Tom Bowler (bass) are joined by Jimmy Fleming (Fiddle, Mandolin), and Chris Howard (drums). Local singer/songwriters, Cathy Kreger and Jessie Haynes, also appear on the album singing background vocals.
This is the first album that Katie is leading her band on acoustic guitar, instead of from behind the drums. While her newly expanded group has more of a folk and country sound, Katie sticks to her rock roots, offering an album that many will love.
Girls Like Us is now available on all online outlets such as iTunes, CD Baby.com, Amazon.com, etc.
