“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

Happy Dog Days! 🐶
This month I’m doing a private house concert in the Atlanta area *(sorry, invitation-only). Then, I’m honored to be playing the “May’s Gulf Songwriter Series" at the Little River Canyon Center in the Little River Canyon National Park near Fort Payne, AL. Opening for me will be the very talented singer/songwriter (and fellow Fort Payne native) Stuart Douglas Stanley
(https://www.facebook.com/stuartdouglasmusic). If you’re anywhere near NE Alabama, come see us and check out the park!
In September I’ll start by doing two back-to-back house concerts in Ohio: Rebecca’s Backyard and Sarah’s Backyard in Mt. Vernon, OH. After that I’m be in Florida, at the
Mudville Music Room in Jacksonville doing my very last show for my old friend, Ray Lewis
(who is retiring from show biz). Be sure & stop by to thank Ray for his years of promoting live acoustic music in NE Florida! And finally, I’ll be over in Tallahassee, doing two shows at the
Blue Tavern. Been looking forward to playing this venue —heard so many great things about it.
October, I’m playing shows all the way up the east coast to New England and then back down to Georgia and Alabama. More on that later ...
Hope to see you out there! 👍 —Pierce
