“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

late May - early June 2021
Beautiful weather here on the mountain --nice & cool. Hope you've got nice weather at your 10-20 : )
Just got a couple of dates to tell you about right now: one live stream & one live in-person. The LiveStream date is a special Memorial Day online concert from my home here on Lookout Mountain. It'll be streaming live from my YouTube Channel at 7 PM central time
(www.youtube.com/PPchannel). >This show will feature all different songs from previous live streams,
including many unrecorded works and some never performed live!
As for the live date, I'm doing a benefit concert on June 5th in Lynchburg, VA to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of WarmStreets.com --a ministry to the homeless. For more about WarmStreets and the great work they do, check out this link.
As for bookings, I might squeeze in some live dates in Virginia, the Carolinas & Maryland after June 5th. Unfortunately, my California tour planned for July had to be cancelled until next year. So July is now completely open. But my Texas tour in August is still in full swing --I'm especially looking for dates out that way between August 13th & 30th. September, Mary is booking dates for me in the northeast and New England. Not sure where I'll be in October. November through December, I’ll likely be headed back down south to Florida again. If interested, please contact my agent Mary Granata or myself here.
