“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."
-Performing Songwriter Magazine

Happy 4th of July! (& Happy Canada Day to my friends up north). Hey, I’m going to California! This month, after two year’s delay, I’m finally headed to the Golden State to teach songwriting & alternative guitar tunings for the California Coast Music Camp in Carmel Valley. Such an honor to be invited back & I can’t wait to see all my old friends there.
And while I’m out on the west coast I’m also doing a special Outdoor House Concert, hosted by my friend Dave Baxter … near San Jose (and yes, I know the way). So if you live anywhere near or around the Bay Area, come see me!
