Biography

Birmingham AL, United States (2000 – present)

The Pierces, sisters Allison and Catherine, are a pair of singer-songwriters based in New York City (by way of Birmingham, Alabama and Nashville).

Former ballerinas turned songstresses, they released their self-titled debut in 2000 with Epic. The album was met with lukewarm reception, but the girls were undeterred. After moving to New York, they released Light Of The Moon with Universal in 2005, with similar luck. After leaving the label and their manager to make some serious changes, they recorded their third album with producer Roger Greenawalt and after having opened a week’s worth of shows for Albert Hammond Jr. in November 2006, the girls were greeted with much more enthusiastic reception and excellent press.

Thirteen Tales of Love and Revenge was released in April 2007.

The Pierces recently gained even more press when they were featured on the December 5th episode of the hit TV show, “Gossip Girl”.

However, despite Catherine’s high-profile celebrity romance with the Strokes guitarist, Albert Hammond Jr., the increased publicity didn’t translate into sales.

According to the You’ll Be Mine Songfacts, the siblings were on the verge of calling it a day when a friend of theirs, Coldplay bassist Guy Berryman, offered to produce them. The result was The Pierces fourth album, You & I, their first release after signing to Polydor.

    New album sounds like all nowadays top-artists' (Lana Del Rey, Lorde, Florence+The Machine, etc.). The Pierces lost their individuality.

    I could tell just by the lyrics that my favorites from Creation were written by Allison. The album reminds me of the sounding of their self-titled album and Light of The Moon. Love it!!!

    Some of the songs on Creation have an ABBA feel to it. And I mean that in the best possible way.
