Vinyl Sessions

Summer Pearl – Soul / The Social

Author: Soho Radio

Summer Pearl joined Soho Radio and The Vinyl Factory at the 180 Studios as part of this series of Vinyl Sessions; live performances cut direct to vinyl.

A one-shot series where artists record direct to dub plate. One disc – one take – one shot.

You can now get your hands on the two track 12″ of the live session via Vinyl Factory.

London-based, singer-songwriter and composer Summer Pearl is a true artist who harnesses her writing and performing prowess into singular form. Alongside her solo output, she has collaborated with Enny, written for Kojey Radical, and featured as the face for Kamasi Washington’s ‘Hubtones’.

Speaking about her inspirations, Pearl shares: “my music is a meditation on my past and a reflection of our present. It is both a personal and political message exploring black and female liberation and love gained and love lost. It is heavily influenced by jazz, soul, hip-hop and dub; I channel the experiences of ancestors, women and myself to conjure these emotions.”
