Garrett Pierce shares new video via SF Weekly, on tour now with Tom Brosseau
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. With a pocketful of songs, he returned to make All Masks (Crossbill Records) – a lush album recorded in the gold rush town of Columbia, CA featuring strings, wind instruments and a cast of over ten musicians.
Garrett’s 2012 record City of Sand (Narnack Records) was largely biographical, commenting on his dizzying relationship with the city and growing desire to leave for more natural settings. During this period, Garrett began splitting his time between Sonoma County and San Francisco – playing clubs throughout the bay area at night and working in the wine industry during the day.
Garrett has completed his fourth record titled Dusk which will be released on April 14, 2017 in partnership with Crossbill Records.
Other than continuing to be a voracious reader of classic American authors like Richard Brautigan, John Steinbeck, Ernest Hemingway and Henry Miller, he is an avid mushroom forager, and when he’s not in the studio you might find him somewhere in the redwoods of the Sonoma Coast walking through the damp earth.
