Biography

Astrid : (as-trid), a female given name, meaning beautiful goddess of divine strength

Pierce : a male given name, meaning rock, or extremely talented, powerful, handsome man

Brooklyn band Astrid Pierce formed in 2008 as a three-piece band, with guitarist and vocalist Mike Pawlowicz, bassist Matt Vollmer and drummer Cici Harrison. Guitarist, violinist and vocalist Craig Harff joined the band in 2009. From their energetic drumming that draws on the primal beats of tribal drums to the blues-tinged violin that plays lines like a guitar, Astrid Pierce has a unique and inescapably catchy kind of sound that’s regrettably rare in today’s music scene. These are no good-enough-for-now pop songs with here-and-gone indie scenester appeal. Astrid Pierce is a band dedicated to making rock music that, in their words, has “no expiration date.”
