There's really not much out there on The Pearls. But I'll post what I know of.

Here is an article, in pdf form and in two parts:

http://www.tulsaworld.com/TWPDFs/2007/Spot/W_010507_ES_3.pdf
http://www.tulsaworld.com/TWPDFs/2007/Spot/W_010507_ES_27.pdf

This list of podcasts includes one from July 23, 2007, which includes the song "Nobody Ever Told Her." The DJs talk a bit about The Pearls before the song starts.

http://www.replay-video.com/guide/index.php?start_page=http://www.applian.com/guide/view_podcast_details.php?show_id=5181

Here's a silly youtube video of the group singing while slightly tipsy:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rt-BUjNrkVM

And finally, here are the three MP3's that I have:

Nobody Ever Told Her: sendspace.com 6cmkqn

Many Happy Regrets: sendspace.com 92lcrj

LA Girl (Yes, THAT LA Girl. It was a Pearls song first!): sendspace.com ahu4y2

There may be other stuff out there...in fact, I may have even seen it. But that's all I can think of off the top of my head. If I remember any other stuff, I'll come here and add it!

I forgot about this band. Nice... I remember hearing about it back when I was getting to know Andy in the Summer of 2008.

Who are the band members again?

Thank you Coolie, I saw talk of these songs, but didn't know where to find them. Very good songs, I like! I also like the harmonies and blend of voices between Andy and Jocelyn on Nobody Ever Told Her. Very pretty.

I love the way their voices blend, too. I think that's probably my favorite thing about the song, and why I like it so much. Smile

coolshades Good thinking on your part to put the Pearls question at number 11. Showing off your lawyer skiills there. It didn't net us much of an answer, but at least it has been answered. At least we have the video of Andy and Mike singing Take The Blame. Maybe there will more video of them jamming together in the future.

Pattieann, that was actually a TOTAL coincidence! I did already have a Pearls question at #11, but all it was was: Where can I get more songs from The Pearls?

But after my convo with you at DCO the other day, I decided to merge that question with "Whatever happened to the Pearls?" and the whole thing became question #11. I had considered putting a question I *really* wanted the answer to as question #11, but thought that would be "cheating." LOL.

And I do feel that we did get an answer....the best answer we could have gotten. I think there were probably several details about the demise of the Pearls that Andy just didn't feel he should share. I mean after all, he was just one of four people in the band...and Zac Maloy was kind of the moving force behind them. So in a way, there were actually *four* other people involved. And maybe there were things that he just wasn't comfortable sharing without their OK, kwim?

I've been thinking a lot about his answer for the last couple of days, and I'm thinking maybe the four band members just had other avenues they wanted to pursue, or other side projects that kept them from really focusing on The Pearls. I suppose it's *possible* that the four of them (plus Zac) just didn't see eye-to-eye musically, or didn't want to go the same musical direction. And that could be another reason why it was a "failed attempt." And the fact that he said it was a failed attempt at "something" tells me that there was a specific direction they wanted to go with the band...something "different," and it was just never realized. And to me, they *did* seem to be going a different direction. I mean, the focus was really on the singing more than the music, I thought...and the way they utilized four voices instead of just one, and did songs with both a male and female lead. Just a different vibe, ya' know?

But the fact that they seemed to disappear as quickly as they appeared makes me feel in my gut that they all just had other things going on and decided not to pursue The Pearls any longer. I'm glad he told me that they're all still friends, because that tells me that it wasn't some huge spat that caused the demise of the group. That would have sucked.

Coolshades, yes, that does make sense that he would not want to share certain details without the okay of the other members of The Pearls. It was unusual the way they utilized all the voices. The only other group I can think of that did something like that was The Traveling Wilburys, but even they did not include a female singer. It is good that they're all still friends.

Norjbac - Thanks for bringing the pictures of the Pearls over here. That inspired me to go to Andy's MySpace and look at all his pictures. The pics of him and Jennye are all so sweet, and Andy was an adorable little boy. Why does he have a picture of Aaron Neville? I happen to love Aaron Neville, but that picture is just really random.

Thanks DragonDaisy! I had a couple of those pics, but not all of them. I'm not on facebook so I had no way to access them.

Nice find, coolshades!

Here's an article on Oklahoma Rock News about Mike Kelly's new album. It also has the video that Andy retweeted from Austin Tolin.

I love the video, love seeing the guys just hanging out together.
