CHRIS PIERCE “American Silence” – Official Video Music and Lyrics by Chris Pierce Single and Video Produced by Chris Pierce www.chrispierce.com ©2020

“The stripped-down arrangement of guitar and harmonica puts emphasis on Pierce’s impassioned vocals and righteous message to keep fighting for justice in this country. It’s the sound of everyone who’s hungry for change, steadying themselves and marching toward a common goal.” – Rolling Stone Los Angeles, CA – Internationally acclaimed singer/songwriter Chris Pierce stands by the notion that music can cut through the isolated and static feelings for those of us worn down by the chaos of everyday life.

He calls out to unite us under one sonic roof to speak up, sing out, rise up and resist with the offering of his 21st century justice & freedom single “American Silence”. On the new title track from his forthcoming LP, Pierce channels some of the legendary justice and freedom writers like Richie Havens, The Staple Singers, Bob Dylan and Nina Simone, with sparse instrumentation and soulfully passionate vocals. The forthcoming full-length album to be released early 2021, soulfully spins original songs about a wide range of issues including justice, oppression, homelessness, black self-love, racism, mass incarceration, Immigrant Transcontinental Railroad workforce, Native American boarding schools, and a tribute to the American statesman and civil rights leader, John Lewis.

The album was recorded during a socially distanced session at Boulevard Recording in Hollywood, CA with only Pierce and the studio owner/engineer Clay Blair in attendance. All lead vocals, acoustic guitar, harmonica and background choir parts on the album were performed by Pierce.
