“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"

This month, I start off with an amazing show doing the Acoustic Cafe Series at the Hedback Theater in Indianapolis, IN with Garnet Rogers & my old pal, Cliff Eberhardt! Then I head up to Michigan joining Joshua Davis, Julianne Ankley, Chris Buhalis & Olivia Millerschin on faculty for the 25th Lamb's Retreat for Songwriters in Harbor Springs -- directed by John Lamb.
And finally, I head out to Texas where my friend David Webb (on keyboards & accordion) and I are playing the Austin Acoustical Cafe (presented by The City of Austin Parks and Recreation Department and The Live Music Capitol Foundation). Then I'm doing solo shows back with my friends at the Old Firehouse in Edom and Harmony House Concerts in Bonham --as well as doing special music for Sunday services at the UU Church in Tyler.
Hope to see you out there! --Pierce : )
PS ... My new album, "Father's Son" was released earlier this year. You can order your own copy or download here!
