Singer Jemina Pearl may have found her Shangri-la.
The Nashville native (now a Brooklyn, New York resident) is on her second tour in support of the recent album “Break It Up” (Universal/ Ecstatic Peace). Released last October, the album has been getting a spate of great reviews.
Spin magazine said: “(Jemina Pearl’s) sweetly sassy debut collapses the distance between the Ronettes and the Runaways.” And I might add, the Shangri-Las, who recorded “Leader of the Pack.”
Check out Pearl’s music on MySpace.
And here’s video of the Shangri-Las singing “Leader of the Pack” in 1964:
