One could say Pierce Avenue is in perfect harmony. Made up of husband and wife Tony and Jaime Pierce, the duo has paired their love with their affinity for music, meshing their solo chops to create a soulful, southern-fringed sound unique to most up-and-coming Nashville hopefuls. Embracing their authentic country roots with twang and sass, the high-octane duo delivers high-energy performances laced with flawless harmonies that leave no doubt in the listener the two have become one.
Jaime a Hoosier native, and Tony a Texas boy, met in Dallas and moved together to Music City in 2010, when Tony got the job to play lead guitar for Dustin Lynch. With a few Opry opportunities and big tours under his belt, Tony felt something missing. It was his dreams to pursue writing & playing his own music.
In October 2013, Pierce Avenue released their first single as a duo to iTunes, "Take It to the House." Along with producer Jimmy Dulin(he produced "Take It to the House" & "Shut Up & Love Me") and engineer Todd Tidwell from Starstruck Entertainment, Pierce Avenue produced and co-wrote on all 5 tracks of their debut EP released in 2014.
Pierce Avenue also released a YouTube video of their 'country' cover of John Legend's "All of Me" that has had over 95,000 views to date! Because of the response from YouTubers wanting to be able to have that version, in 2015 it became available on iTunes to purchase.
In 2016 the unthinkable happened... Tony entered a guitar contest online through Guitar Center, and was 1 of 5 chosen out of 6,000 entries to be flown to Los Angeles, CA and play on stage with Vince Gill and his band in the 'Onstage with Vince Gill Contest.' Since this opportunity of meeting and getting to know Vince, Pierce Avenue has sat in, and continues with an open invitation from The Time Jumpers.
Pierce Avenue is currently in the studio working on their next record with Producer/Artist/Guitarist Keith Sewell (Dixie Chicks, Lyle Lovett, Ricky Skaggs.) It's going to be a different direction from their debut EP... STAY TUNED! They are excited to be getting this music out after 3 years of writing & honing in on their style.
Pierce Avenue will be touring all over the US in 2018, so keep an eye on their calendar.
