Heather Pierson is a multiple threat: genre-crossing singer/songwriter, award-winning pianist, arranger, bandleader and performer.
Heather Pierson comes by her musical eclecticism naturally, her childhood soundtrack consisting of her parents’ wide ranging record collection, a father who played jazz clarinet and an early start on the piano, the instrument that captured her heart.
2014 saw the emergence of the Heather Pierson Acoustic Trio, in which the singer frequently backs up her compositions with compelling acoustic guitar work while accompanied by Sean Nadeau on bass and Davy Sturtevant on strings and cornet. The group's three part vocal harmonies and intricate instrumental arrangements provide a flexible vehicle for the delivery of Pierson’s songs. The trio is releasing its first EP of Pierson originals, Still She Will Fly, this month.
