Sarah Pierce @ Joe's

Austin's Sarah Pierce opened the show for the band Reckless Kelly June 5th. Sarah is on the independent Little bear record label managed by her drummer Merel Bregante who played drums for over twenty years with Loggins & Messina. Sarah has released seven albums all on the Little Bear label including one childrens CD called the "Buttercup Princess" which has proceeds going to the Ronald McDonald house charity and her latest album is appropriately titled "Cowboy's daughter" even though she is from Rockford Illinois she spent the majority of her life growing up in Texas and Colorado. Sarah also has a masters degree in medical science and worked in that field until music became her passion. Sarah was discovered by John McEuen from the Nitty Gritty Dirt band and he took her on tour as an opening act. Her music combines the best of old honky tonk country and new pop sensibilty with poetic lyrics that translate well to a live audience. Click on the title to this post to see more photos.
