Pierce Pettis, adored by critics and public alike, is one of this generation’s most masterful songwriters.  His music is distinguished by his uncanny ability to capture universals in human experience by drawing on the humor and trials in daily life.  The beautiful harmonies, inventive yet subtle percussion, strong guitar, and Pierce’s rich vocals are a constant throughout his body of work.  Pettis has performed in all 48 continental states as well as in Canada and Europe, and has appeared nine times on American Public Radio’s Mountain Stage, as well as on National Public Radio’s E-Town, Morning Edition and World Cafe, VH-1, CBS News, and the Nashville Network.  During his long career, Pierce Pettis has been a writer at Muscle Shoals Sound Studio in Alabama, recorded for Fast Folk Magazine in New York, won the prestigious New Folk Songwriting competition at the Kerrville Folk Festival in Texas, and was a staff songwriter at Polygram/Universal Music Publishing in Nashville.  He has received numerous songwriting awards, including a 1999 ASCAP Country Music Award for “You Move Me”, recorded by Garth Brooks.  After three critically acclaimed albums on Windham Hill/High Street label, Pettis joined Compass Records in Nashville, releasing five albums.  The latest, “That Kind of Love”, (2009) received raves from XM/Sirius Satellite Radio, Paste Magazine, Performing Songwriter, American Songwriter, The London Sunday Express, and Image Quarterly.  The album was ranked at #2 nationally in February 2009 in the Roots Music Report for acoustic/folk releases.  “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!
