ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Several of my songs have been heard in major television shows such as Grey\'s Anatomy, Veronica Mars, The Hills, Dirt, Army Wives, The L Word, Greek etc. I have played everything from Lilith Fair to The Cavern Club in Liverpool. I recently toured for three months across North America and also performed live on the BBC.

My first album, Small Fires, received great reviews and all the songs were licensed to television shows. I followed this album up with an EP called Hors D\'Oeuvres when two of my demos were used on Grey\'s Anatomy and Veronica Mars. These placement of my songs on very popular television shows and the inclusion of my song \"Lost and Found\" on the Veronica Mars Soundtrack Album created a demand for the songs. Second Cup also released an EP of mine called Exit which was available exclusively at their shops across Canada. I released two original Christmas songs as an EP and Canadian Tire also used my Christmas songs on their promotional album last winter (2007). Canadian Tire released 600,000 of these discs. My latest full length album Faultline was released in 2007 and was produced by Jeff Trott (Sheryl Crow) and Thom Russo (8 time grammy award winner) and features performances by many past and present members of Beck\'s band including Justin Meldal Johnson, Lyle Workman, Joey Waronker Victor Indrizzo and Roger Manning. Faultine has become very popular with my fans and has earned many new fans for me as songs from the album have been on The Hills, Army Wives and many more shows.

I have toured with and opened for some amazing artists like Ray LaMontagne, Damien Rice, Sondre Lerche, The Stereophonics, Jane Siberry, Carina Round, The Finn Brothers, Yoav and more. I even had a member of Radiohead compliment me on my performance after a show in Toronto. I have toured Canada several times and have toured extensively in the US and the UK as well. I performed at The Toronto International Film festival and have played SXSW, NXNE, CMW and NMW.

Last October (2007) my cover of a Neil Young song (along with covers by Ron Sexsmith, Barenaked Ladies etc.) was released as part of Broken Tunes II. All proceeds go to charity. Last fall I toured for three solid months promoting Faultline all over North America opening for Issa (Jane Siberry). This spring I toured the US and the UK and this summer I recorded my third full length album in Canada which I will release Spring 2009. In addition I will be releasing a series of 4 EP\'s (Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall). The EP\'s will come out at the beginning of each season with the first one (Winter) to be released November 1, 2008. Both \"Winter\" and my most recent release \"Faultline\" will be available at Borders stores November 2008

Album: Faultline/ Artist: Adrienne Price / 13 tracks: 48:03/ Nettwerk Productions

A phenomenally gifted singer/songwriter strapped on her guitar, and blew away the audience with her music in late November, while opening for ISSA (formerly known as Jane Siberry), in Vancouver, Canada. By the time, Adrienne Pierce ended her all too brief four-song set, concertgoers were clamoring to hear more, and many realized they had just witnessed an artist on the verge of becoming a star.

The Los Angeles based Pierce, who is originally from the Vancouver area, gifts us with thirteen tracks of exquisitely crafted, alternative pop tunes, on her album Faultline. Her song \"Better Year,\" possesses an easygoing melody, with good hooks, a contagious beat, and deep groove. This is an uplifting song that looks forward with hope rather than lamenting what has been.

Pierce delivers lyrics with the honesty of a Suzanne Vega, only minus the cynicism. The emotionally charged title track \"Faultline,\" packs the same evocative wallop as Natalie Imbruglia\'s \"Torn,\" and the more cryptic \"Jealousy,\" by Natalie Merchant.

Adrienne Pierce possesses the same attribute which distinguishes prolific songwriters, whose music is timeless, from those who are more mundane and whose moment of fame is fleeting. She is a gifted lyricist, and talented storyteller, whose songs paint vivid images, and bring her words to life. Like ISSA, Sheryl Crow and Gordon Lightfoot, Pierce not only opens the book when she begins to sing, but she helps you turn the pages, as the stories unfold.

\"Laundry And Dishes,\" is a beautifully crafted tune, in which Pierce becomes completely vulnerable. The ballad begins with the singer\'s inability to keep the smaller details of life together as a romantic relationship fails, and then chronicles a downward spiral into depression. In so many ways, this song is a sad commentary, concerning a trap that so many of us fall into, when we allow our self worth to be determined by others. Pierce sings effortlessly, and has stunningly beautiful vocals. Each phrase is perfectly measured, each word carefully considered. \"Laundry And Dishes,\" like so many of the tunes from Faultline, have \'hit\' written all over them.

In a previous interview, granted prior to her performance at the prestigious Austin Texas, SXSW, Pierce noted that more than anything else, her CD Faultline represents the many changes she was experiencing in her life, while she was writing, co-writing and recording these songs. She draws from sorrow, excitement and uncertainty, as the emotions flow easily through the music, from deep within Pierce\'s soul.

Producers Jeff Trott (Sheryl Crow) and Thom Russo (Johnny Cash, Janet Jackson), ensured a CD that has an excellent mix, great balance and musically is second to none.

Adrienne Pierce\'s music has also been featured on Gray\'s Anatomy, Veronica Mars and other television programs.

Catch a star on the rise, dial into the music of Adrienne Pierce.

On the west coast, you may want to take in Pierce\'s performance at the Knitting Factory in Los Angeles. East coast music fans, can hear her at New York City\'s Joe\'s on December 21st and 22nd, while those living in Toronto, can drop into Hugh\'s Room on December 12th, 13th and 14th.

My first contact with Adrienne Pierce
Through this work I met the wonderful work of Adrienne Pierce. I am Brazilian and I met her in a blog. Faultline is perfect: beautiful music, soothing, relaxing and unique. Fools Gold, One Perfect Day and Beautiful are some of these, for example. But my favorite without a doubt, is Reaching For Me Someday, I'm sure I will see Adrienne sing this song live. I love this CD and point completely

Dieter

A Masterpiece
A brilliant album in songwriting, performance and production - period!

Outstanding songs are "Better Year", "Laundry and Dishes", "One Perfect Day", "Faultline" and the absolutely gorgeous "Fool's Gold", one of the great songs of the last decade.

Nice
We are playing the CD continuously.

Laundry and Dishes
I heard this song on a friends blog to her honeymoon video. This music is like something from a dream, so unique, so excellent!!!

Tess

Adrienne Pierce = Amazing
This album is sheer BRILLIANCE. I love everything about it, from her flowy voice, to the music, to, in my opinion, the best part - her lyrics. My favorite songs are:
Beautiful - It is every girls' anthem, in my opinion. Why can't they just see I'm beautiful?
Downside of Love - The beat and sound to this fits the lyrics, which seem very uncaring (which is the point DOWNSIDE of Love haha).
I Don't Know - I felt so lost after my break up and this song described all my emotions. It's beautiful.
Laundry and Dishes - Such a PRETTY SONG! It sounds like such a homey song, one that could narrate a home video in my opinion.
Reaching For Me - This song is so fun! The chorus is the best part, it gives you really good images (Dance like the shadows turn and twist but we don't touch).
Lost and Found - This song was on my favorite TV show (which is now discontinued), Veronica Mars, and was the first song I'd heard by her. It's such a fun song, and the lyrics are based off some very true things that happened to her.
Better Things To Do - It's a good pick-me-up song. The lyrics are free, uncaring, and positive that life is still going to be okay!
All in all, this is an amazing album! BUY IT TODAY!!!!
