My Heavens by Adrienne Pierce

Adrienne Pierce has a new single out and I just love it. The album is also called My Heavens .
 You can get her wonderful songs on iTunes
Adrienne is such a hard working and dedicated musician. In March she was touring in support of her new release. She  performed in the States, (Indiana, Idaho and Washington)  as well as througout western Canada.
Back home in Vancouver,  Adrienne recently performed at the Backstage Lounge as part of the Cold Reading Series. This series takes place every Monday. It is an evening with a mix of performances: actors presenting readings and a featured musician. This is a great concept and I hope Vancouverites head out to the Backstage Lounge to check it out.

Adrienne is on facebook, so why not drop by her artists page, and see what she is up to there.

I love this review from her show in Yakima, as it says things so perfectly:

“She’s a breathy chanteuse whose sensibilities are in line with the Wes Anderson set, the lovers of tiny and bittersweet and beautiful. If you like Feist you’ll probably like Pierce. If you like songs that sound pretty but have a little bit of a melancholic edge, you’ll probably like Pierce. “
-Yakima Herald
 2012 was an exciting year for Adrienne Pierce. She recorded her new album My Heavens, scored a film and even got a Grammy nod.  Her song “It’s Your Day” which was featured in two international commercials, made the ballot for Best Song from Audio/Visual.  This all happened while she was taking a year off from music to teach Art, History and English at an alternative one on one school. 2013 looks to be a great year too. She released her fourth full length album, My Heavens February 19th and embarked on a tour across Canada and the USA February 17th. - See more at:

I just had to share this video of My Heavens and hope you enjoy it too.
