Four years ago Pearl (Katie Sutherland) was just another music-loving student from Kirkintilloch, Scotland. She was classically trained and could bash out a tune on the piano. But she’d never as much as picked up a guitar.


Then, aged 19 she bought a guitar. She taught herself how to play it and quickly wrote some songs. Within a matter of months she’d set up a MySpace and posted four demos. Within a week, the first record label contacted her.

Since recruiting a band and taking the name Pearl and the Puppets, she has supported Sugababes and Elton John, and wowed the crowd at T in The Park and Rockness. She has also worked with veteran producer Stephen Street (Blur), David Kosten (Bat For Lashes) and Steve Chrisanthou (Corinne Bailey Rae).
Pearl and the Puppets amazing debut single ‘Make Me Smile’ will be released 9th August.
