2pm Pearl - Wellington pop duo 'Pearl' is one of New Zealand's most exciting up and coming acts. Their debut single 'Fallacy' is evidence of their fresh approach to the pop genre. The track was featured on NZ On Air's Kiwi Hit Disc #72 released in June 2005 and NZ On Air also provided funding for the 'Fallacy' video.

Pearl's sound is rich, pure harmonies driving hooky, uplifting pop songs. The result: a perfect blend of sophistication and fun.

Both Lisa and Shelley are talented songwriters. Together with executive producer Chris Jones they have developed their unique sound since forming in 2003.

Pearl is currently working on their debut album, planned for release in early 2006.
