Pier 53 is a no-nonsense band that was formed in the summer of 2010 by singer/songwriters Ashley Pietersen and Michael Roxx. Their quest was to form a band in which everyone involved played unselfishly for the music rather than for themselves.
Combined with the efforts of guitarist Ted Eres, the music was worked on and polished. Adding drummer Chris Goodwin shortly after completed the lineup.
Pier 53 music is for everyone, and their music is not a current trend or fad, but rather a lifestyle that speaks about truth, life in the real world, and good times. Their music reaches out to the listener and takes them on a musical journey. Infusing hooks, vocal harmonies and strong playing performances, they are able to create a sound unlike no other. The overall maturity and song writing is very evident. From hook laden tracks such as “Lonely”, to rockers yet melodic crunchers such as “Feel you with me”, and the slow yet sultry “Harcourt Park”, the group is able to make a statement. That statement is that they’re the real deal and here to stay for a long time!
