The Driftwood SingersPearl Charles - The Driftwood Singers

While most of their contemporaries are surfing the blogosphere daily to figure out what new hip direction they should take their band in to get some notice, LA's Driftwood Singers have taken a very un-contemporary route. The duo of Kris Hutson and Pearl Charles play a simpler kind of folk that one might've heard on the southern front porches of 1930's America.

Kris, in suspenders and all, rotates between guitar, banjo and mandolin while harmonizing along with Pearl, who in garb fit more for the compound on Big Love, strums her autoharp. The pair of 19 year olds has already logged more than 100 shows since they began playing last fall, with tours up and down the west coast and trips to Nashville and New York City. Not ones to turn down many shows, they recently played 3 shows in one day across the greater Los Angeles area, a morning stop in Oxnard, afternoon gig in Glendale and an evening show in Silver Lake.
