“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 New Year!  Hope everyone is off to a good start this year.  Afraid I only have one show this month. However, the good news is that everyone can attend!  That’s because the show is a virtual online webcast. The legendary BethlehemPA music venue, 

Godfrey Daniels invited me to do one of their Parlour Sessions —streamed live on Facebook and YouTube.

I'll be premiering some brand new songs --as well as selections from my six Compass Records Group 



The suggested ticket price is $10 —but it’s strictly pay-what-you-can.  So if you’re broke (like so many of us musicians) it won’t even cost you a dime 😉  

Meanwhile, as I've been saying since March, if you'd like  to help me, as well as other traveling musicians, the very best way is to sponsor a HOUSE CONCERT!  This will boost our finances (and morale) greatly.  So if you or someone you know would like to host a house concert for me or any other wandering minstrel, please check out my blog on this website.  It'll explain all the wheres and hows.

As for dates, I'm looking in the Gulf Coast (Alabama-Louisiana) & the southeast (Florida-Maryland) for March/April.  Possibly doing a midwest to west (Illinois to Colorado) tour in late springtime if the virus situation improves.  Later, there's a California tour in the works for July and several Texas dates are booked for August. I’ll likely be in the northeast and New England in the fall.  

 So if interested, please contact my agent Mary Granata or myself here.


PS … 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. : )
