Introducing Pearly Gate Music, I Was A River [new mp3, SxSW 2010]

Pearly Gate Music is an incredibly talented gentleman by the name of Zach Tillman, who makes beautiful, unusual, simple-yet-complicated songs structured around his extraordinary singing and melodic sense. I stole that line from the press release because I love the track, but am unfamiliar with the artist. I’ll report back after listening to an album.

Zach and band will be touring the country, including appearances at SxSW, in the months leading up to the release of their self-titled debut.

Great tune. Add another to my must-see list down in Austin.

I was about to call you out for stealing the line from the press release but you did it yourself!

It should be noted (perhaps) that Zach is J Tillman’s brother. They’re both formerly of Saxon Shore.

I’m all about full disclosure. I wasn’t aware that he was tillman’s brother. He has a lot of beard catching up to do. A lot.

He was also on Daytrotter this past week. Only two DT tracks but a good sampler, definitely shows promise!
