On the new album A Beautiful Life, Heartless Bastards share a wide-eyed and radiant vision for harmonizing a broken world. The Ohio-bred and Texas-transplanted band’s first new music since 2015’s Restless Ones, A Beautiful Life affirms frontwoman Erika Wennerstrom as a songwriter with the power to profoundly influence our state of mind, often by alchemizing her idealism into viscerally potent rock-and-roll songs. With its delicate coalescence of so many eclectic touchstones—French pop and Celtic folk, space rock and symphonic pop, Disney scores and post-punk—the result is an album that immediately lures the listener into a more receptive mindset, one that leads to deeper generosity, greater compassion, and a restored sense of possibility.
Josh T. Pearson is the son of a preacher, hailing from Denton, Texas.
Pearson formed the short-lived phenomenon that was Lift to Experience, who released one sprawling masterpiece, 2001’s The Texas-Jerusalem Crossroads, before splitting up soon after.
Since then, Josh T. Pearson spent many years in the wilderness, only releasing one studio recording, I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry, a split 7” single with the Dirty Three and appearing on the Mercury Prize nominated Bat for Lashes album Fur and Gold, before returning to recording in 2010.
His debut album as a solo artist ‘Last Of The Country Gentlemen’ was released in early 2011 to incredible acclaim.
After a 7 year gap, Josh released his sophomore solo album, ‘The Straight Hits’ in 2018.
