Sometimes sounding like a man possessed, Charlie Pierce’s piano playing is driven and intense. During a performance, he will rattle you to the core with a heartbreaking ballad and then unleash a New Orleans inspired boogie that leaves a listener longing for the days when juke joints ruled the American landscape. His music is somehow familiar, yet can leave you feeling like an outsider who has just witnessed something very real, painfully beautiful, and ultimately redeeming. Regardless of how his music grabs you, at the very least, Charlie’s performances are the most genuine thing you have heard in a very long time.
With over 20 years in the music business, and countless miles clocked on the road, this Austin newcomer has already gained the attention of some of Austin’s most revered musicians including performances with Rosie Flores and Dale Watson.
