A new Pierce Pettis CD is reason to rejoice
(5 out of 5 stars)

""Everything Matters" is another terrific effort from one of the greatest, and unfortunately overlooked, talents on today's acoustice music scene. Pierce Pettis writes songs that force you to search your heart, to confront your demons, and come through on the other side filled with hope. As with his four other CDs ("While the Serpent Lies Sleeping," "Tinseltown," "Chase the Buffalo," and "The Light Inside" -- check them out!) "Everything Matters" is filled with beautiful melodies, subtle lyrics, Pettis' soulful voice and skillful guitar work. Two of my favorite cuts are "Comet," an elegant examination of the sometimes randomness of found love, and "Hole in My Heart," a haunting, sad song about lost love. I heard Pierce sing "Just Like Jim Brown" in a concert about 4 years ago and was happy to see that he finally included it on a CD. One the surface, it may just seem a clever tw! ! ist on a bad relationship, but the song contains wise words about knowing when it's time to go. "My Little Girl" is a sweet statement about a father's love for his child. Like all Pierce Pettis songs, these are real and true, full of life and emotion. The great thing about the music of Pierce Pettis is that he writes about little events, small details, one man's emotion. But these songs reveal a greater truth about life and man's place in the world. Don't overlook Pierce Pettis -- his work is a soul-soother."

"...I decided to look up this CD on Amazon and saw that it was rated their number 31,116 seller! 31000!! see Pierce Pettis, or an album of this quality languishing in obscurity is outlandish. I was turned on to some of his earlier stuff by his nephew, and although I bought some of his Windam Hill recordings... he never really grew on me. But a while back I bought State of Grace on a whim, and absolutely loved it. I had heard that this one was better but was surprised to hear how good it actually was. This is the type of CD you not only want to recommend to your friends, but buy it for them! You will be glad to have spent the money on this one, and you will be amazed..."
The Complexity of Love

"As a listenter to contemporary Christian music from 1976 - 1995, with the possible exception of Phil Keaggy, I have never heard a more honest heart express faith, doubt and human love with such complex simplicity. Pierce sets the standard of a love song with "Love Will Always Find A Way." In it he shows that the power of love between two humans is a most profound force. In the following song (on the CD) "God Believes in You," the first line is worthy of a doctoral dissertation: "When you start to doubt if you exist...God believes in you." I'm impressed with Pierce's ability to be honest with his contrasting acknowledgement of thanks to his "Joy-giver" in the credits and the words from "Comet" that express the doubts that, though feared, are a completely natural part of human existence: "I gaze up at the stars and wonder...I can see the lights are anybody home." Of course, these are just the words to the songs, but when you combine them with the incredible musical talent that Pierce and his accompanying musicians express, simply put, this CD is a beautiful work of art. Thank you, Pierce."
