“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."

Happy Hanukkah!  Merry Christmas!

*(we celebrate both in my house)

Doing my usual December trek to Florida for two live shows.  But I’ll ALSO be doing a live-stream show from home for the rest of you!  First, I’m in Tallahassee at Theatre Tallahassee for the annual “Almost Christmas” concert with Del Suggs & the Allstars.  That show is always a total blast!  Then I’m heading over to Maggie’s Farm … Maggie’s Musical Farm that is, in Youngstown, FL (near Pensacola/Panama City).  Maggie & Mike have built a beautiful outdoor stage on their property and invite everyone for an afternoon of music and fun in the tall Florida pines!


Then for all you folks who can’t make it to my live shows, I’ll be doing a Special Christmas Livestream from Château PP —my home on Lookout Mountain.  I’ll be doing material I perform ONLY during the Holidays --such as “Miriam” and "If It Wasn't For the Night", as well as brand new & unrecorded songs.  And of course, selections from all my Compass albums.


So here’s wishing you the very best this holiday season and a Happy New Year!  —Pierce

Also … You can still order my latest album, "Father's Son" as well as my 5 other Compass Records Group releases (CD, mp3, WAV, or FLAC) here. : )
