Pierce Pettis is the Best Folk Singer with soul and passion
Michael Mastrogiovanni | san francisco CA | 07/31/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Creativity and a statment of a race no longer dwelling with strength on its own soil. love , compassion and passion in the lyrics that make you think and feel the passing of an age of the American Indians. Poetic genius and unpraised talent of the american artist is all here on his album"
Better Late Than Never

"I realize that this review is about 15 years too late, but this is one of the best CD's from one of the "New Singer/Songwriter Movement" Alums. Pettis, every bit as good, if not better, than movement mates Gorka, Colvin and Vega, delivers a work of stunning depth and clarity with "Chase the Buffalo." From his usual homage to Mark Heard that begin most of his CD's (Here, it's the wonderful "Nod Over Coffee"), all the way through to the closer "Envelopes of Light", this CD delivers beautiful playing, strong vocals and enough melody to satisfy over several releases. My personal Favorites are "Nod Over Coffee", "You're Not There", "Natchez Trace", "Family", "Trying to Stand in a Fallen World"...... hell, the entire CD is a Home Run!!!
Pierce has been around for about 20 years and still tours regularly. His music is reminiscent of John Gorka, Jonathan Edwards, Mark Heard, etc., real personal singer/songwriter stuff, but he can also rock and has a sense of humor in his songs as well. This title was out of print for a while when High Street Records was sold by Windham Hill. It's nice to see that Amazon has it available. If you are a fan of any of the above-mentioned artists and enjoy singer/songwriter, new folk stylings, then get this CD."
Killer artist and CD

"This was the first Pierce Pettis CD I ever bought, and it just knocked me off my feet. I'm not a real touchy-feely kind of guy; I'm a Vietnam-era former Marine Officer, but this guy's 'Family' made me weep, and can still do the same thing years later. He's a one-in-a-million poet who writes songs that can make you laugh and cheer, or completely fall apart, and sings and records them so you can understand exactly what he's saying. He's a fine guitarist and has a very pleasant singing voice. Since buying this, I've bought every Pierce Pettis CD upon release, without even listening to tracks - and NEVER been disappointed. This guy is GOOD. Get this one, then get 'em all."
