Soulful indie-folk foursome Pebaluna have announced plans to release their debut studio album, Carny Life, on September 18.
Pebaluna songstress Lauren Coleman found her stirring voice at a young age, singing in a Las Vegas church choir and training her ear listening to Aretha Franklin in her parents’ car. It was only a matter of time before falling in love with musical instruments like the ukulele and guitar which she quickly picked up and began writing original music.
Coleman teamed up with Matt Embree (RX Bandits, The Sound of Animals Fighting) and began making music in Embree’s makeshift garage/studio under the name Pebaluna. After the addition of drummer Jessica Lankford and bassist Jonathan Grillo, the group began work on their debut album, Carny Life.
Carny Life chronicles Coleman’s personal experiences of heartache and hard-fought battles with self that are deeply ingrained within the lyrics and music. With Embree’s highly skilled songwriting skills combined with Coleman’s passionate vocals and guitar play, along with the help of Lankford and Grillo, Pebaluna’s debut is quite impressive to say the least.
