“North Dakota troubadour brings stark, trembling beauty to folky acoustic pop. The world is better for it.”  —MOJO Magazine
Garrett Pierce began writing for magazines and playing in rock bands as a teen in Los Angeles before permanently relocating to the Bay Area in the early 2000’s. His first full-length album ‘Like A Moth’ was a stripped down acoustic affair with guest appearances by notable songwriters Jolie Holland and Matt Bauer. Garrett then traveled and toured Europe where he was honored to support Nick Cave in Greece. Garrett has completed his fourth record titled ‘Dusk’ which will be released on April 14, 2017 in partnership with Crossbill Records.
“Ranging from raving pop to solemn folk, from Shins-like exuberance to Mark Kozalek’s charismatic sadness” – East Bay Express
