ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
2012 was an exciting year for Adrienne Pierce. She recorded a new album, scored a film and even got a Grammy nod. Her song “It’s Your Day” which was featured in two international commercials, made the ballot for Best Song from Audio/Visual. 2013 sees the release of her fourth full length album, My Heavens.

After traveling to Israel, Alaska and many other places in 2011, Pierce decided to stay put for a while and write and record at home. Most of the music for My Heavens was written and recorded in Los Angeles. In August of 2012 Pierce moved to New York. She recorded vocals in New York and mixed the album with her husband Ari Shine, in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. As with Oh Deer, Pierce’s 2010 full length album, she co-produced this album with Ari Shine who also recorded the album and plays most of the instruments.

Pierce, whose songs have been heard on TV shows such as Grey's Anatomy, Veronica Mars and dozens of other shows and movies, has released 3 full length albums (the 4th coming out in 2013), 6 EP’s and two singles. She has played everything from Lilith Fair to The Cavern Club in Liverpool as well as showcases at SXSW, NXNE, CMW and The Toronto International Film Festival.  Adrienne has toured with and opened for revered artists (Ray LaMontagne, Damien Rice, Sondre Lerche, The Stereophonics, Jane Siberry, The Finn Brothers), played live on the CBC and the BBC and even had a member of Radiohead compliment her performance after a show in Toronto.

Adrienne's touring in support of "Oh Deer" began in Norway at Bergenfest alongside artists like Lou Reed and Randy Newman. She has since toured across the US as well as playing dates in her native Canada. The year culminated with a live performance on CBC Radio and shows supporting Frazey Ford and the White Buffalo. Adrienne will release My Heavens in February 2013 and will then begin to across North America.
My Heavens was inspired by Buddy Holly, girl groups from the 50’s and 60’s, Peter Gabriel, Ryan Adams and the stars (the ones in the sky).

“Adrienne Pierce finds a way to sing about ugly things in the most beautiful way”.

Pierce’s third album, Oh Deer, came out in September 2010. It has earned rave reviews, garnered significant airplay and made many year end lists. One review described Oh Deer as a mesmerizing combination of Edie Brickell and Blossom Dearie. Features in magazines like Performer have praised the album’s adventurous aesthetic and Adrienne’s addictive voice; at once passionate and atmospheric. Adrienne’s touring behind “Oh Deer” began in Norway at Bergenfest alongside artists like Lou Reed and Randy Newman. She has since toured across the US as well as playing dates in her native Canada. The tour culminated with a live performance on CBC Radio and shows supporting Frazey Ford and the White Buffalo. Adrienne continued to tour throughout 2011 including dates in Canada, The USA and Israel. Adrienne’s songs have been heard on TV shows such as Grey’s Anatomy and Veronica Mars. “Lost and Found” from the album Faultline appeared on the soundtrack for Veronica Mars alongside Tegan and Sara and Spoon.

Pierce’s first album, Small Fires, was released in Canada on her own Insectgirl Records. Great reviews, a regional buzz and her bewitching live show caught the attention of Nettwerk Records and Management in Vancouver to which she was later signed. Pierce followed up Small Fires with two EPs: Hors d’Oeuvres and Exit,. The singer’s second full length album Faultline was helmed by Jeff Trott (Sheryl Crow) and 8 time Grammy award winner Thom Russo who brought in an all star team of players including many Beck alumni. The beautifully layered production put the spotlight on Pierce’s continuing evolution as a writer. Faultline was first released digitally before making its way into stores in 2008. It expanded Adrienne’s worldwide following considerably with many fans creating popular youtube videos for songs from the album.

In November 2008 Adrienne released a 6 song EP entitled "Winter” which received critical acclaim and international airplay. The charming songs on “Winter” were heard everywhere from podcasts in Afghanistan to popular shows on CBC radio and airplay from tastemakers in the U.S. such as World Café Live on WXPN. Three of the original songs from Winter will be featured in two Hallmark movies (Trading Christmas and Hitched for the Holidays) which air this December (2012) on the Hallmark Channel.

My Heavens Track - Opinions
The artist describes herself as pop with a splash of folk sound. First thing I noticed was the clarity of her voice and the guitars. She definitely uses the folk flavor in her music, although this particular track didn't feel like it had a pop vibe. I could imagine her singing at a coffee house or another more intimate venue. This track had a very easy feel and relaxed spirit which would be a good track to listen to if you needed to unwind. However, this didn't particularly wow me, but I did appreciate the track.
