Heather Pierson Trio
The Heather Pierson Acoustic Trio burst onto the national folk scene in 2015 with their debut EP, Still She Will Fly. It features the multi-genre depth of Heather’s songwriting – ranging from folk ballads to blues to New Orleans traditional jazz – their intricate instrumental arrangements, and stirring three- part vocal harmonies. The title track was the #2 single on the Folk radio charts in 2015, and three other songs (‘Ain’t Gotten Around,’ ‘You Don’t Know Him The Way I Do,’ and ‘Make It Mine’) were in 2015’s Top 100 Folk singles. They are currently wrapping up work on their first full-length record, which is scheduled for a spring 2017 release.
Heather Pierson (lead vocals, acoustic guitar, tenor banjo, piano) is an award-winning singer/songwriter and performer. With eight previous solo recordings under her belt, Heather’s wise, beyond her years songwriting, angelic voice, and world - class chops have catapulted her into the spotlight.
