“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 Hanukkah! Merry Christmas!
The holiday season is finally here —and time for my annual Florida Christmas Tour! First stop: Tallahassee and the 38th “Almost Christmas” Show at Theatre Tallahassee with my old friend, Del Suggs & the Allstars … featuring Mimi Hearn, Jerry Thigpen, Michael Sautter, Danica Winter, David Murphy, Pete Winter and special guest Warren Sutton. Don’t miss this one!
Next, I’m doing Calamity House Concerts down in Bradenton. Then I’m back with my pals at Heartwood Soundstage in Gainesville (one of my absolute favorite venues). After that, I’m doing a special potluck/house concert and fundraiser for the Lullaby of the Rivers Foundation in St. Augustine. Rounding off my tour in West Florida, I’m back with my buddies, Maggie and Mike McKinney, for a show at Maggie's Musical Farm
in Youngstown. Finally, I’ll be back home doing my Christmas Livestream ’23 —with all the songs from my Christmas tour and maybe some surprises. Tune in to my YouTube channel and click “live” to check it out (https://www.youtube.com/@piercepettis337/streams)
Hope you see me out there, somewhere! 😉 —Pierce
