“If you’re one of those people who likes any style done well– old-school jazz, folk, pop,
classical–you’ll love this prodigiously talented threesome. Keyboards, brass, all sorts of strings,

The Heather Pierson Acoustic Trio are a rare bunch – three musicians from three very
different backgrounds, bringing their skills, their quiet charm, and their down-to-earth
honesty to bear on songs that bring to life the sounds of the streets of New Orleans and the
valleys of Appalachia. Their recordings (2015’s Still She Will Fly and 2017’s Singin’) and
live performances feature Heather’s multi-genre songwriting, their instrumental virtuosity,
and stirring three-part vocal harmonies.
Heather Pierson (lead vocals, acoustic guitar, tenor banjo, piano) is an award-winning
singer/songwriter, pianist, and performer. With eight previous solo recordings under her
belt, Heather’s wise-beyond-her-years songwriting, angelic voice, and world-class chops
have catapulted her into the spotlight.
Davy Sturtevant (cornet, dobro, fiddle, mandolin, harmony vocals) is a veteran touring
artist, producer, engineer, songwriter, and performer. Armed with a gorgeous tenor voice
and a mighty arsenal of instruments that come to life in his capable hands, Davy is at once a
witty, thoughtful, and engaging musical presence.
Shawn Nadeau (bass, harmony vocals) brings a rock solid thump and nearly two decades of
performing experience to the trio, informed by a wide spectrum of unique rhythmic and
melodic sensibilities ranging from rockabilly to reggae to jazz.
