"One of the most open-hearted practitioners of new folk...Pettis's voice beckons with something to say." - The Boston Globe

"Unlike a lot of his contemporaries, singer-songwriter Pierce Pettis doesn't belong to the 'me generation.' He's more likely to sing of his surroundings than himself,and frequently draws on his southern background for inspiration and color." - Washington Post

A witty, heartfelt lyricist, Pettis has a voice that carries the acoustic folk tradition, but is refreshingly hard to pigeon-hole." ?Charlotte Observer

A songwriter's songwriter, Pierce Pettis is back with his first new studio album in nearly a decade with 'Father's Son'. Featuring 10 tracks, including a cover of Jesse Winchester's "A Showman's Life," Pettis writes about friends he's lost, childhood memories, and the relationships he's experienced both as a son and a father on these deeply moving, literate songs. Pettis, who first came to recognition as part of the "Fast Folk" movement in New York that featured fellow artists as Shawn Colvin, John Gorka and Suzanne Vega, moved to Nashville in the 90s and worked fo years as a staff writer for Polygram Records before breaking out on his own as a solo recording and touring artist. 'Father's Son', reuniting Pettis with producer Garry West, was recorded "live on the floor, with the band, with minimal overdubs, to create the energy authenticity of the sessions."
