“Sometimes I have to stop listening to a Pierce Pettis track halfway through because he makes me want to give up on songwriting.  Pierce is a master musical storyteller, delivering human truth and heartbreaking vulnerability with every tune. He’s also an unnecessarily virtuosic guitarist with the voice of some beautiful angel who also happens to be your old, familiar friend.  All of it completely unfair.”

- Justin Paul, writer/composer "La La Land", "Dear Evan Hansen"



"...all Pettis has to offer is his earnest best, a tender heart, packaged in one three-and-a-half minute song after another."

-Jason Killingsworth, Paste Magazine

"Pierce Pettis bares a gentle soul with a keen eye, a soulful voice, and perfect guitar accompaniment for his beautiful songs - a masterful poet treasure"

-Darrell Scott, songwriter/recording artist

"I have loved Pierce's music for many years now-he has the gift of a true inner compass."

-Eliza Gilkyson, songwriter/recording artist

“Pierce Pettis doesn’t write mere songs, he writes literature...End to end the songwriting is brilliant...Pierce Pettis albums are events in my listening. His writing just gets better all the time and his singing is marvelous, wry and warm..." -Sing Out!

"...One of the more vital and critically acclaimed folk stars of recent years."

FINALLY!  LIVE SHOWS!  My last live show was March 14th in Omaha, NE —it snowed!  Sooo glad to be performing again this month!  Of course, for the Iive shows we will be taking ALL recommended precautions, including limited seating, social distancing, masks, etc. to keep everyone safe.  However, if you have immune deficiency due to chemo, diabetes, etc. we would suggest you not put yourself at risk.  BTW, a couple of the shows will be steamed live with very professional production values, so you’ll be able to join us virtually *(see upcoming dates on the right).

First show is an outdoor concert at Vestavia Hills Baptist Church in BirminghamAL.  It’s limited seating, so be sure and make your reservations early.  Next, I’m back with my old friends at the Red Clay Music

Foundry in DuluthGA (Atlanta area) for Eddie Owen Presents.  It’s limited seating as well —but will also be streamed live.  After that I’m heading up to Black MountainNC to join my old friend, Dana Cooper —playing a double-header at the White Horse.  This show is strictly online (no live audience) —but will be a multi-camera shoot, with first rate production and sound.  Don’t miss it!  Lastly, I’m doing a new house concert for some nice folks in GoodlettsvilleTN 

(Nashville area).  But this one is private and invitation-only (sorry).

Meanwhile, many kind folks have asked how they can help musicians recover from the current crisis & I suggest the VERY best way to help me & other traveling musicians is HOUSE CONCERTS!  This will boost our finances (and morale) greatly.  So if you or someone you know would like to sponsor a house concert for me or any other wandering minstrel, please check out my blog on this website.  It'll explain all the wheres and hows.

As for dates, I'm looking pretty much anywhere that's open for November and  in Florida for December.  

Looking for bookings EVERYWHERE in 2021 --including a California tour in July & a Texas tour in August.  So if interested, please contact my agent Mary Granata or myself here.

Of course, I'll try and keep everyone up to date as things evolve.  Meanwhile, please stay safe and look ahead to better times : )

love,  --Pierce

PS ... You can order my latest album, "Father's Son" as a physical copy or download here.  Great for at-home listening : )
