Still working on that hot first release.


Feeling a bit camera shy



Chris Pierce & Sunny War had a friend in common, musician and producer Jared Faber. Faber thought the 2 should meet and that they might hit it off….maybe there was some music to be made amongst them.

The three first got together at Faber’s Silver Lake studio for a little hang and out of that was born “Any Day Now”, the first song written and recorded by the 3. They all felt so inspired by the luck of their first encounter that they tried to repeat it…to see if lightning could indeed strike twice. Each time they got together they wrote and recorded what would ultimately become their debut album, the self titled “War & Pierce”.

All of the basic tracks for this album were recorded live.

About War & Pierce (& Faber):

Chris Pierce (vocals & harmonica)
Chris has invited audiences all over the globe to open their hearts and spirits through his soulful, energetic music and honest storytelling. He has released 5 independent albums worldwide co-produced with multi-Grammy award winner Seth Atkins Horan. In addition to his own headlining tours, Pierce has opened worldwide shows and tours for such artists as Seal, B.B. King, Al Green, Toots and the Maytals, Aaron Neville, Colbie Caillat, Beth Hart, Robert Cray, Blues Traveler, Judy Collins and Jamie Cullum. His voice & music have been heard in numerous films including Soul Men and Crash and has been licensed by such T.V. shows as True Blood, Grey's Anatomy, Brothers and Sisters, Single Ladies, Eli Stone, In Plain Sight, Dawson's Creek and Army Wives.

Sunny War (vocals & acoustic guitar)
Originally from Nashville, TN, Sunny War (born Sydney Lyndella Ward) is a force of nature that is tough to pin down. Her style lies somewhere between Punk and early blues. Yes, she may be a Robert Johnson with a shot of Bad Brains, but even this description falls short. The only way to really know Sunny is to immerse oneself in her music. Sunny’s inimitable guitar technique mixed with her haunting vocal sound is unique & intoxicating. As a solo artist she has opened shows for Booker T, Keb’ Mo’, Madeleine Peyroux, Mindy Smith, The Levon Helm Band, & Angelique Kijo among others.

Jared Faber (electric guitar, bass, keyboards & producer)
Jared is a Grammy winning song writer/producer and Emmy nominated Film & TV composer. He was also musical director/band leader for the 2011 Guys Choice awards. As a composer, recent credits include Selfie, Suburgatory (both on ABC), Screen Jems’ “Mardi Gras: Spring Break” (staring Josh Gadd) and song producer for Sony Pictures’ upcoming “The Wedding Ringer” staring Kevin Hart. He co-wrote and co-produced the Beto Cuevas album “Transformación” which won the 2013 Latin Grammy for best Pop/Rock Album. He has written TV theme songs recorded by Macy Gray, Leann Rimes and Jenny O. His Cuba recorded project Urban Legend with partner Kool Kojak topped the CMJ world charts and got much critical acclaim and numerous TV/Film placements. His songs have been featured in CSI Miami, Dexter, Nip/Tuck, The Smurfs 3D, My Family Wedding, The Long Shots, Welcome to Mooseport amongst many others.
