ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“Once in a while there's a voice that just stops you in your tracks.  That's what I came across when listening to Oh Deer, the forthcoming third full length album from B.C. singer/songwriter Adrienne Pierce.” T.O. Snob’s Music

Adrienne Pierce’s third full length album, “Oh Deer”, has been described as Paul Simon meets Cyndi Lauper with hints of Talking Heads and Feist. “Oh Deer” was recorded in a cabin on B.C’s Sunshine Coast, in a tiny bungalow in Hollywood, and in two different Vancouver studios. It was mixed by fellow Canadian Dan Burns (Carina Round) in Los Angeles. The 12 songs were written over several years in Paris, Bologna, Death Valley, Kauai, Vancouver and Los Angeles. For “Oh Deer” Pierce takes on the role of producer and brought in her talented friends to play everything from accordion to strings, drums and prayer symbols. These tracks vary from minimal folk songs to pounding rhythmic handclapping dance tracks but are bound together by Pierce’s distinctive voice and lyrics. Jeff Trott, who produced Pierce’s last album Faultline for Nettwerk Records makes an appearance on, and produces the old-timey pop/country track “Let’s Pretend”.

The songs range from the dreamy waltz of Arc De Triomphe with lines like “breathing still breathing, sirens the only sound, standing still standing, all those bones piled up underground” to the hopeful “Telescope”. This album starts at the Amargosa Hotel in Death Valley, takes you to the Black Sand beaches of Kauai, and makes a stop at a party on New Years Eve in Los Angeles. Oh Deer ends with “Telescope”, a song about finding hope and love. It was written during an eclipse in Bologna. On this album you will find confessions, apologies, accusations, backyard ukulele parties and monsters under the bed.

The first single, Museum is an infectious, upbeat number reminiscent of Regina Spektor. Pierce wrote the lyrics to “Museum” on the back of a map when she visited the Musuem of Natural History in Paris. A video for “Museum” can now be seen on MTV Iggy and will soon be showing at The Dances With Films festival in Los Angeles.

Adrienne has already licensed two songs from Oh Deer to film and television. “Black Sand”, was used in the award winning short film “9-1-Mum" . Adrienne will be kicking off her tour in support of the new album with three shows at Bergenfest in Norway alongside Randy Newman, Lou Reed and Don McLean.

"...a record that succeeds largely because of its vision and imagination; Pierce challenges both herself and her listeners with some genuinely surprising developments.... the ambition and desire to take risks is refreshing, at times recalling fellow Canadian Jane Siberry (with whom Pierce toured in 2008). Oh Deer offers no apologies, serving notice that Adrienne Pierce is still most definitely one to watch."

The Best of Adrienne Pierce
This cd is the best, no doubt, the brilliant singer Adrienne Pierce. All the songs are perfect. I am Brazilian and I am simply in love with this amazing singer. My favorite song of this album: Guilty Of Everything.
I'm in love with Black Sand, Amagorsa Hotel and Three Hours Ago
Perfect voice and complete artist.
Totally recommended.

Oh dear...
...what an amazing album!

A long awaited successor to the brilliant "Faultline", enthusing with a varied collection of songs, perfect songwriting and my favorite tune of 2010... "Museum"!

Absolutely Incredible!
I am a long-time fan of Adrienne Pierce, Canadian chanteuse extraordinaire, and was therefore expecting to enjoy “Oh Deer.” Having said this, I was completely amazed by this showcase of Pierce’s incredible talent. From the first rich notes of the slide guitar on “Amargosa Hotel,” to the closing notes of the spare and moving “Telescope,” listeners are in for a treat. Her signature voice, at once wispy and forceful, carries the listener through an array of songs with smart lyrics that transcend pop. Every song is unique and fabulous, so buying the full album is imperative. A guaranteed pleasure!

Guilty of Everything
This album is so much fun and it's now on a favorite list of CDs I play over and over. So much talent. She has a great voice. The songs are are perfect mix of whimsy and some more serious stuff. My favorites are Guilty of Everything, Telescope and Let's Pretend. Hope you like it, too.
