Alfred Lund & Heather Pierson

Heather Pierson was born on the edge of the American West and was raised on the music of the South - blues, jazz, soul - music that is at once both celebratory and melancholy. To define her by these origins, however, is to miss the point - she is a prolific performer, composer and songwriter in nearly every genre of music. Her wildly and beautifully varied live performances and her growing catalog of releases reflect this boundless creativity. New Orleans jazz, Delta blues, poignant and narrative story-songs, Native American chants, New Age instrumental piano, folk-pop, a capella vocal renderings, ethereal and synthesized soundscapes: all are well within the capable grasp of this unique and inspiring performer. Her latest CD release, Make It Mine, is a collection of 16 songs recorded in rural Maine and mastered by Grammy-award winning Bob Ludwig of Gateway Mastering. The album explores the universal themes of love, loss, hope and perseverance in a manner reminiscent of such songwriters as Joni Mitchell and Paula Cole. The title track won third place in The New England Songwriting Competition in July 2011. Her forthcoming CD, The Open Road - a collection of her unique and emotive solo piano compositions - is scheduled for a mid-2012 release. In a career that has thus far spanned over three decades, Heather’s performances and songwriting capture the depth and character of her heartland roots and the wildness and beauty of her current New England home.
