About Pickin’ Pear
Tia Martini and Leon Elam – The Pickin’ Pear – branch out from Canyon Collected to create a folk ‘n’ roll duo. They combine their unconventional stylings to their traditional instruments and create an original mix of modern American music. Together the Pickin’ Pear take the banjo and ukulele down the road of folk, rock, and bluegrass. Sometimes the ukulele will even launch you straight to outer space. A blend of top-notch songwriting and improvisational jamming makes each one of their songs sound unique. The Pickin’ Pear are bringing their organic and all natural blend of folk ‘n’ roll all across the U.S. in 2019.
In January 2019 they finished recording their first full length album. On the record they wanted to show the direction they wish their band to grow by bringing in Matt Wolff from Indiana ska band Dissonance & Dissent to join them on the 5 string electric bass. They are hoping to tour extensively in 2019 in support of their new release Feels Like Home.
