Pierce Edens, Album Release Show
September 15 @ 8:00 pm - 11:30 pm$17
A Life In Trade is set to arrive on September 15. He’ll be celebrating with a local album release party at The Grey Eagle that same evening.
A veteran touring musician, Pierce Edens has alternated between a breakneck life on the road and long stints at his idyllic family homestead for the better part of a decade. In 2020, when the COVID-19 pandemic halted almost all aspects of daily life, he embraced solitary living on his multi-acre property, tending religiously to the land before an enthusiastic digital audience. Through his relatability, he colored beautifully those things that were difficult to find at the time – a sense of belonging and purpose, humor, and normalcy. Despite the abysmal nature of the time, creative inspiration was in generous supply. The therapeutic act of shepherding his land not only rewarded Edens in harvest, it uncovered a rich garden bed of imagination, sprouting seeds for new song ideas and rogue lyrics that would eventually make up A Life In Trade.
