Thanks to these fine folks for taking time to review “All Masks”

“Another great singer/songwriter from San Francisco. Powerful with a light touch, Garrett will rip your heart out one moment and have you dancing the next.” – Tony DuShane, SF Gate
“Garrett’s talents as a performer and a songwriter are undeniable.”
-The Bay Bridged
“Loving the beautifully recorded, moodily mythic tunes on the SF songsmith’s new All Masks” – Kimberly Chun SF Guardian
“Wow! Bay Area troubadour Mr. Garrett Pierce has continued to nurture and refine his songcraft in a big big way. All Masks blossoms and flourishes onwards from his previous two releases… Some of the songs on his latest album verge on the epic yet still maintain his intimate earthy heart.” – Aquarius Records
“Garrett Pierce has great songwriting, a cohesive album  and simply something you find yourself singing along to, or at least humming in my case.  Pierce is releasing his third album and second with
Crossbill Records and I have been lucky enough to be listening for a bit now.

While I can get lost in “Sad Bastard Music” and don’t mind when an artist can display this theme through an entire album, many have a hard time being bombarded by the uber mellow.  “All Masks” doesn’t fall victim to something like this, while you do have your aching ballads, you still have range through almost bluesy inspiration (see “Lioness & Lion”) while still having the down-tempo (see “Can I Stop Breathing?” – beauty) and even have a bit of Southern rock influences on a song like “All Through The Night”.  There is a bit of a whole package here, either that or he is still formulating if he wants to be an “at dusk troubadour” or a “late night crooner”.  For those in the know, they can be two different beasts.  Either way, Pierce has the chops and talent to do either.”
