Dark Side of Pearl
4 out of 5 stars
Singer/songwriter Paul Kimbiris has toured the world opening for acts ranging from the Dead Milkmen to Colorado’s Gregory Alan Isakov (who receives co-writing credits on “Home Soon”). All of that association with great musicians has paid off for Kimbiris on his first full-length release. Co-produced by Kimbiris and Philip Parker (Glowing House) Dark Side of Pearl was recorded in Boulder and Nederland. Kimbiris puts forth a superbly written effort with songs that are delicately phrased and paired with subtle arrangements that aren’t showy, but tasteful and well played.
