John Pierce speaks to his passions, his roots, and to an incredible kismet of talent and timing. A performer since childhood, John’s talents won the support of fellow Montanan and hit tunesmith, Kostas ("Blame It on Your Heart,""Life # 9"). John’s love for the outdoors came together with a peaceful, inspiring environment to nurture his songwriting.
Among His Influences : Willie Nelson, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Jimmy Buffett, Kris Kristofferson, and don’t get him started on Don Williams and "Yellow Moon"!
Music That Connects : "Writing is important to me," John says. "I think when you perform something you’ve written, or find a song that conveys what’s a piece of you, that people feel that and know that." It’s in the Lyric : "The most important thing to me is the lyric. That is the thread of my record. Each and every song, they all evoke emotion – at least to me. I love ‘em all."
