Cam Pierce has quickly garnered the attention of some of Music City's finest after relocating to the area two years ago from his home in the mountains of Oregon. From Opry musicians (one of which regularly plays in his band), to iconic venue owners, and most importantly, the listeners. He has gratefully found a home among an audience who are hungry for original songwriting that transports them to another place, time, and frame of mind. This is where his dedication and the dedication of his band lies.
That dedication to songwriting and the cultivation of a core following of true friends and fans has already led to a live performance on NBC Channel 4's “Today In Nashville,” and a coveted spot in the line up of this years Pilgrimage Festival in Franklin, TN. where they also took part in a live recording of his song “When We Were Young” for sixthman.net.
Mr. Pierce and his band has recently started an indefinite residency at Alley Taps in Historic Printer's Alley in the heart of Music City! Every Friday evening from 10:00pm until Midnight Cam and the Boys will be playing at the new home of original music in downtown Nashville.
( Residency begins 1/31/2020 )
A comment from a fan following a recent performance pretty much sums it up, saying, “it's been a long time since I heard songs that make me want to dance and tug on my heart strings at the same time.”
Each song is like discovering an unheard classic for the first time. With a vast array of subjects and styles ranging from 70's Alt Country, and sawdust floor HonkyTonk, to Appalachian Roots, a dash of soul, and all things outside and in between. However, if you need to slap an “Americana” label on it, go right ahead, doesn't bother him.
Cam's also a sucker for all things old... old movies, television shows, photos, guns, knives, cars, books, toys, paper, cans, clothes, bottles, and music.
"I grew up second hand, from the clothes on my back to grandma's cigarette smoke in my lungs and I'm thankful for it. It's taught me to do the very best with what I have at any given time."
