“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

This month I’m back with a vengeance! —first doing a “President’s Day Livestream” from Château PP, my home here on Lookout Mountain. Hope you can tune in for that one. You can watch the show on YouTube and chat with your friends while you watch. After that, I hit the road and head up to beautiful Black Mountain, NC … where I’m back at one of my absolutely favorite venues: White Horse Black Mountain, run by my old friend, Bob Hinkle. Then I'm over in Graham, NC (near Greensboro & Durham/Chapel Hill) doing a special afternoon show at 87South —hosted by my pal, Rebecca Newton (who’s also opening the show).
Into March, I round off the Carolina leg of my tour at the Evening Muse in Charlotte —doing a “writer’s night” with a couple of outstanding local songwriters: Tylor Hill and Low Groves. After that, I head up to Maryland for a concert at St. Andrew's Episcopal Church in Pasadena
(near Baltimore) w/special guests, Janet Griffin & Paul Harrison.
Finally, I’ll be down in Franklin, TN (near Nashville) at Generations Church for a special concert with comedian and musician, Paul Aldrich and my dear friend, Bob Bennett!
Might be adding some more March dates, so stay tuned!
