Chris Pierce’s ‘Let All Who Will’ Aims To Bridge Trenches That Divide Us

Los Angeles singer/songwriter Chris Pierce has announced new album, Let All Who Will, for September 1st, 2023 release via Friends at Work / Downtown Distribution. The album sets out to “amplify unheralded voices” and aims “to bring us together across the bitter trenches that divide us.” Pierce’s new album is a follow-up to his 2021 acoustic album, American Silence. Co-produced by Niko Bolas (Neil Young, The Mavericks) and Dave Resnik (Sonia Dada, Mavis Staples), Let All Who Will was recorded in Hollywood, CA at the legendary Sunset Sound.

Chris Pierce’s first single, “Tulsa Town”, is an indictment of a horrific historical act of mass murder that still echoes in our culture today.

Let All Who Will does not flinch away from the harsh realities of being Black in America. Rather, “It focuses a blistering lens on historical and modern injustice, trusting the audience to understand that justice and compassion show the only way forward for our nation.”

Born and raised in Los Angeles, Chris Pierce is known for his cross-genre work, his many collaborations, and paying homage to “the true roots” of Americana. In making his new album, Pierce was able to draw from an array of Los Angeles musicians.

The album features Doug Pettibone (Lucinda Williams, Ray LaMontagne), Sunny War, Michael Jerome (Richard Thompson, Blind Boys of Alabama), Kaveh Rastegar (John Legend, Bruce Springsteen), Kelvin Holly (Little Richard, Peggi Young), Deron Johnson (Miles Davis, Seal), Dave Palmer (Joe Henry, Susan Tedeschi), Maiya Sykes (Macy Gray, Postmodern Jukebox), Jessica Childress (Aloe Blacc, Rod Stewart), Charles Jones (Jennifer Hudson, Joy Oladokun), and Ginger Murphy (Kamasi Washington, Kendrick Lamar).
