Bio

“There’s not a lot of anonymity in my music."

Marc Pierce describes his songs as “soul-searching stories of love gone awry.” For the most part, his are tales of woe: of the women that wouldn’t stay, and the ones who stayed too long. But don’t be misled. Rather than being the sad, cry-in-your-beer tunes that we’re all used to, Marc uses his satirical wit and command of word play to make his songs uplifting for the downtrodden. Rounding out Marc’s original material are songs about dogs, chickens, social networking, Santa Claus, and fishing. Marc’s set list is further enhanced by an eclectic group of cover songs from acts such as They Might Be Giants, The Flaming Lips, Roger Miller, and Steve Earle.

Growing up in the musically impaired city of Mobile, Alabama, Marc began playing guitar, piano, and drums at six and performing with his father at bluegrass festivals throughout the south. High school years were spent performing for school functions, Mardi Gras associations, and local house parties. Marc performed in "honky-tonk" and frat party bands during college before offering his talents to the U.S. Navy where he performed for his fellow sailors working in the Persian Gulf. Marc’s most prolific writing period came just one year later after moving to Murfreesboro, Tennessee. Songs such as “Honey, I Missed You”, “Round and Round”, and “Drowning of the Sun” were penned during this period while Marc performed with satire/parody/comedy act, The Laughing Storm Dogs and country/folk trio, Mostly John, in and around Nashville.

Now based out of San Diego, California, Marc has worked diligently to maintain his lyrical chops and to increase his fan base. Marc regularly auditions his new material at ”Joe and Andy’s Hole in the Wall” on any given Monday or Wednesday night and has played rollicking holiday shows at venues as diverse as The Brass Rail.
