The buzz on Adrienne Pierce continues to build. The Vancouver born singer/songwriter taps into a singular source to create music that has universal appeal. Her independently-produced debut, Small Fires, is a pop gem full of sublime songcraft and intense performances.

You may have heard Adrienne's songs in Grey's Anatomy or Veronica Mars. She has been quietly writing and performing for years and is about to release a new album in January (2007)produced by Jeff Trott (Sheryl Crow).
Here is how it all started:
Two years after picking up a guitar and teaching herself to play, Adrienne found herself onstage at Lilith Fair. There was a contest in every city that Lilith stopped in and Adrienne won the contest and the coveted opening spot.
After releasing her debut album Small Fires, Adrienne toured extensively in suport of it. Adrienne has opened for Damien Rice, Ray Lamontagne, Jane Siberry, The Stereophonics, The Finn Brothers and many more. She was recently chosen as one of a handful of artists (Ron Sexsmith, Buck 65, Chantal Kraviazuk) to showcase at The Canadian Music Cafe for the Toronto International Film Festival. Adrienne was also chosen recently as one of just 5 artist (along with Ron Sexsmith) to have their music available at Second Cup store in Canada. There is an EP entitled "Exit" that is exclusive to Second Cup.
Adrienne has placed her songs in many television shows, (Chris Isaak Show, Just Cause, Cold Squad, Love/15, Edgemont etc.)and most recently in Veronica Mars and the ABC drama Grey's Anatomy. These recent placements were both for new songs which will be on her second release (January 2007).
