Belated British release for alternative Nashville singer/songwriter
Now picked up by Flying Sparks?the label that discovered Thea Gilmore?Pierce Pettis comes from a rich vein of Nashville-based new-folk troubadours that in the past couple of years has bought us such talents as Jeff Finlin, Josh Rouse and Will Kimborough. With a supporting cast that includes mandolin player Tim O’Brien and fiddler Alison Brown, there’s a strong bluegrass flavour. But it’s Pettis’ songwriting that’s the main attraction. Further evidence that away from the Music Row production line, there are still more great singer-songwriters per bar in Nashville than anywhere else in the world.
