Blakk Pearl grew up in North London and moved to Devon when she was a young teenager, where she would watch her Father on US TV shows and hear of his activities in LA as a manager of NWA. She now lives in a convent outside of Toulouse in France, which serves as her creative hub and sanctuary. It’s where she produced her debut single ‘Cowboy’, which is the first track taken from her first EP, due to be released early next year on Kobalt.
Driven by a subtle backbeat and a warm marimba sound, ‘Cowboy’ showcases Blakk Pearl’s haunting, sleek vocals. The song was co-written with Tristin Norwell (Neneh Cherry, Talvin Singh, Noel Gallagher) and Pascal Gabriel (Goldfrapp, Marina & The Diamonds, Dido) with additional production by Curtis Lynch (Gorillaz, Alicia Keys, Gregory Isaacs).
