Carla Pemberton and The Valors I met Carl Pemberton at Bonnaroo while having a slice of Spicey Pie when I heard the people at the table across from me mention Chattanooga. We immediately fell into conversation and when I got home I had a link to Carl's work on Bandcamp in my in-box. I will let you decide for yourself who they remind me of, but suffice to say it was is rather succesfull keyboardest and vocalist from another era. Adding Kristin to the mix rounded out an already talented group. Check them out yourself!
