Blakk Pearl grew up in a North London commune. Moving to Devon when she was a young teenager she would watch her, by now absent, father on US TV shows and hear of his activities in LA as a manager of NWA.
Blakk Pearl now lives in a convent just outside Toulouse in France. Having rebuilt it from a ruin, it serves as her creative hub and sanctuary. Blakk Pearl divides her time between Toulouse, London and Paris.
Blakk Pearl’s own musical tastes vary from Skepta to Sade and from the Beastie Boys to Massive Attack. Co-writing her songs 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), Blakk Pearl has created an ethereal, bass heavy window into her world.
