“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
"...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
“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 over the Southeast this month. First, down in Hattiesburg, MS, returning to the Back Door Coffeehouse at University Baptist Church --an outstanding concert series!
Then later I head down to Florida to play Heartwood Music Fest IV in Gainesville --sponsored by my pals at Heartwood Soundstage. After that, I'm doing a new house concert series --Winter Springs House Concerts in Winter Springs. And finally, I'm back at one of the finest small concert halls in the country: John Kelly's Hideaway Cafe in St. Petersburg --doing a special Sunday matinee show.
Then I close out the month, back at my friend Andrew Kelsay's Charles & Myrtles Coffeehouse in Chattanooga, TN.
Next month: Illinois, Minnesota, Louisiana, Alabama and Georgia ... more on that, later.
Hope to see you out there! --Pierce : )
PS ... You can order my latest album, "Father's Son" as a physical copy or download here!
