“Heather Pierson’s trio is really impressive, with each member showing great skill with multiple instruments and playing songs that get the audience into a reverie one minute, and heartily singing along the next.” ~ Sarah Craig, Caffe Lena, Saratoga Springs, NY

It features the multi-genre depth of Heather s songwriting, their intricate instrumental arrangements, and stirring three-part vocal harmonies. The title track was the #2 single on Folk radio in 2015, and three other songs ( Ain t Gotten Around, You Don t Know Him The Way I Do, and Make It Mine ) were in 2015 s Top 100 Folk singles.
