Biography

Drop the needle anywhere on The Pierces' fifth album Creation, and it's impossible to miss the sense of renewed possibility that pervades every note. "If we want to/We could do what kings do," sing Allison and Catherine Pierce on Kings, a cascading declaration of love's supremacy over its opposite. As an industrially adhesive chorus goes about its business, the ... Read more in Amazon's The Pierces Store

4.0 out of 5 stars High Lights September 6, 2005
Format:Audio CD
The Pierces are two sisters who make pretty, accessible and well crafted pop music with an emphasis on gorgeous harmonizing. Critics, of course, won't like The Pierces because their music is neither dark nor pretensious nor deliberately obscure and unintelligible. I like to be challenged by music as much as the next person, but there are also times I simply want something to sing along to in the car without having to work too hard. This is what good pop music should do and Light Of The Moon fits the bill nicely.

Thrilling opener 'Space Song' boasts a fantastic hook and a lovely, swelling chorus and makes a very good first impression. 'A Way To Us' is catchy upbeat pop that would no doubt appeal to fans of Michelle Branch. Other songs take a more Fleetwood Mac approach - beautifully crafted, with lingering melodies and the sisters harmonizing to the fore, and it's on these songs that The Pierces really strike gold. In fact, if I were Mick Fleetwood, Stevie Nicks & co. I'd be asking the Pierce sisters to do a little songwriting on the side because tunes like 'Louisa', 'You're Right' and 'I Don't Mind' are miles better than anything on the Mac's last studio album.

Much more than just pretty faces, The Pierces possess musical talent in abundance, and if gorgeous melodies are your thing then the remarkably consistent Light Of The Moon will provide you with an album full of them.

Highlights: 'Space Song', 'Louisa', 'I Don't Mind'

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful! January 30, 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album is incredible! It far outshines their self-titled debut. The songs are ethereal and the harmonies stunning. If you like folksy pop music, please listen to this! You wont be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Harmonics December 18, 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I loved this CD from start to finish. My fingers never even itched to hit the forward button, not for a second. I love the harmonics they employ, weaving in and out of each other beautifully.

'The Space Song' was my instant favorite. I had heard 'Save Me' before, though not the version on this CD. That's not a complaint exactly. While not the same song I had heard on "Roswell," it does have its own beauty in the bridge that I can't get out of my head.

'Patience' is a song I find myself humming when I haven't listened to the CD in days.

Catchy is not the word I'd use for this group and that's what sets them apart from song continously played on the radio, where the songs get stuck in your head in the most annoying ways. Haunting is better. A song comes to mind and you smile. It's a shame more people have not heard of The Pierces. I like having this little secret but I'd rather have them be a part of common consciousness.

Absolutely perfect for any mood.

Their first album was fantastic and this one is better!! From beginning to end great harmonies and smooth upbeat sound.

"give it all back" is the best. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unbelievable Songs Combined with Incredible Vocals January 30, 2007
By Rob V.
Format:Audio CD
I usually don't bother with music reviews, but these girls are worth the trouble. I figured I should do something to ensure they get another album out. I have a soft spot for female vocalists and well-written songs. This album is outstanding from start to finish. The songs are really unique - folksy, mellow stuff without any cliches, and almost put you in a trance. The harmony of their voices is remarkable. Their singing is on-par with Tori Amos, Sarah McLachlan, Shawn Colvin and Sheryl Crow. I would love to see them sing live.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning songcraft and sibling harmony January 21, 2009
By Gizmola
Format:Audio CD
I have to admit, I listened to this album relentlessly for a few months, and might still be listening to it in my car, if said car had not been stolen with said CD still inside. I subsequently bought all the Pierce albums I could, but this one remains my favorite of their releases.

Allison and Catherine Pierce grew up in Alabama, and depending on how much of their bio you want to believe, were home schooled by their parents: artist mother and musician father, and at one point were planning on careers as professional dancers.

First lets get some superficial trivia out of the way: yes The Pierces are a strikingly atractive pair, and yes Catherine was at one time engaged to Albert Hammond, Jr of the Strokes. Yes someone at "Gossip Girl" really likes them and keeps featuring their songs. No I don't watch "Gossip Girl."

The Pierces were first signed to Sony after a demo tape they'd made was circulated around Nashville by a friend, while the Pierce sisters were still attending college at Auburn university. Their debut album was released in 2000, to solid reviews, but was never marketed by the label.

Despite the understandable disappointment of being lost in one of the numerous record company shakeups of the last 15 years, The Pierces toured, continued to write songs, and eventually relocated to the New Jersey and New York area. They eventually signed with Universal, and made Light of the Moon with producer Brian Sperber, who has an eclectic resume of work with artists as diverse as Ozzy Osborne, Dinosaur Jr, De La Soul, Moby and Staind.

Light of the moon was released in 2005, and in my opinion represents the best of their three albums.

4.0 out of 5 stars Why are the Pierces not famous in the U.S.?
Not their best album, but still very nice. Good hooks, well-played power pop. Several cuts could've/should've been at least FM radio 'hits'.
