Pinkie Promise
Pinkie Promise
Musical portraits, poems, letters in song, questions of herself, a promise of love, tenderness, rage, and exploration — this is the music of Pinkie Promise. You can expect one hell of a story embedded in each composition, told through the adventurous harmony and sincere lyrics written by singer, Kaitlin Pelkey. Pinkie Promise will make you feel things, it wants to walk with you, and it wants you to wonder.
