Images of mystery, excitement, adventure, intrique, and imagination all come to mind when merely mentioning the name "Black Pearl". Inspired by the pirate ship depicted in Disney's "Pirates of the Carribean", Black Pearl's music exemplifies these images.
Founded in 2007 by drummer/songwriter "Eric Stevens", "Black Pearl" is a spin-off of the Inland Empire's local classsic rockers, "Daisycutter".
Discouraged by poor management and even poorer attitudes, Eric created "Black Pearl" with the intent of presenting a true classic rock show with great tunes and stimulating live performances. With the addition of long time friend and songwriter, Zach Petersen, Eric and Zach have combined writing and arranging to create some truly inspiring and original sounding "classic rock".
The rhythms and melodies are inspired by the best names in the business such as the Beatles, Van Halen, Rush, Pink Floyd, Genesis, and the Who.
The musicianship is second to none, since "Daisycutter was once the hottest rock band in the Inland Empire.
Currently, "Black Pearl" is hard at work finishing their 1st full length CD in their Pro Tools studio and are seeking radio play under the direction of Howard Rosen Promotions.
