Black Pearl is not a band per se. It is a musical project of ever changing artists coming together with the sole purpose of creating the most memorable music possible.
Founded in 2008 by drummer/songwriter Eric Stevens, Eric was creating electrical drawings for Disneyland at the time and was inspired by “Pirates”! Hence the name Black Pearl. “The Pearl” is a spin-off of the Inland Empire's local classsic rockers, Daisycutter.
The "Players" are a group of multi-talented and seasoned pros which have included vocalist Phil Naro, guitarist(s) Jimmy Youngman, Zach Petersen, and Adam Morse. You never know who will be the surprise artist on their next release or show!
Motivated to get out of the local scene and take things to the next level, Stevens created "Black Pearl" with the intent of presenting a true classic rock show with great tunes and a stimulating live performance. With long time friend and songwriter, Tom Morrison, Stevens and Morrison have combined to create some truly inspiring and original sounding music. The rhythms and melodies are inspired by the best, such as the Beatles, Rush,PinkFloyd, Genesis, and The Who.
The band is currently recording and in production of their 4th album which is currently untitled. The band will update fans with latest developments as they happen. Please check website !
