ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Pierce Woodward is a left-leaning, twenty-something songslinger-fiddler from the Hudson River Valley of New York.

If Jesus came to America he would be deported,
He would have no trial and it wouldn't be reported.
("Evildoers")

Pierce spent two years touring far and wide as the bassist in New York's "trad is rad" stringband, The Mammals, before breaking off from the group to spend more time on his own multilateralist-subversive repertoire. He is also in the mysterious, folktronic band, the Jolly Bankers, in which he plays a nasty clawhammer banjo and the occasional mean fiddle.

Recently, he recorded ten of his most fierce & fiery political songs and put them on a CD called Leave No Millionaire Behind. It wasn't exactly a solo project - the album features 10 guest musicians. Pierce plays a little of everything on this record, including a radiator. The Boston Phoenix says he "sings truth to power like a dust bowl poet railing against the robber barons of yore. Woody would be proud."

Boston Phoenix

Woody would be proud
Banjo-bangin' trad-folk revivalists Michael Merenda and Pierce Woodward have spent the last couple of years traveling across this sometimes-great land of ours with their band the Mammals, picking and strumming their way back to an America that disappears a little more every day. That reverence for a vanishing past makes their righteous anger about these interesting times just that much more stinging. On their respective new solo records, each sings truth to power like a dust bowl poet railing against robber barons of yore. 'Point your antenna straight at the sky, hear the privileged white people broadcast last minute lies,' Merenda sings on Election Day (Humble Abode Music). On Leave No Millionaire Behind (Long Run), Woodward reminds our born-again prez that these days 'if Jesus came to America, he would be deported. He would have no trial and it wouldn't be reported.' Woody would be proud.

Pete Seeger

Listen closely
Pierce has a style all his own - strong, disconcerting words, often on the wild side. Listen closely.

In a time when so many folk artists are recording safe, boring "folk" albums, it is a pleasure to hear an artist with something to say and who says it well.
