In a career that has thus far spanned over three decades, pianist, vocalist, guitarist and singer/songwriter Heather Pierson has shared the stage with rock stars and folk legends; performed the classical masters in recital halls; toured the once-smoky New England bottle club circuit; produced 5 solo recordings and founded her own record label, Vessel Recordings.
She was born on the edge of the American West and raised on the music of the South – blues, jazz, soul – music that is at once both celebratory and melancholy. Her explorations both in life and in art culminate in her latest release, ‘Make It Mine’. The album features a new depth and maturity to her songwriting and composition. Its sixteen songs explore the universal themes of love, loss, hope and perseverance in a manner reminiscent of such songwriters as Joni Mitchell and Paula Cole. Heather brings to her own original music her versatility and wide range of abilities and a unique sense of how to appeal to audiences of all genres.[youtube GFGA3S6zSUQ nolink]
Her live performances and her songwriting capture the depth and character of her heartland roots and the wildness and beauty of her current New England home.
