The Pierces are a New York-based music band composed of the two brilliant sisters Catherine Pierce and Allison Pierce.
After their debut album "The Pierces" in 2000, the 2 sisters released "Light of the Moon" in 2005 through Universal. The album was produced by Brian Sperber and featured 11 tracks that the girls either wrote or co-wrote.
On return to New York from a sold-out UK tour supporting Albert Hammond Jr. (from The Strokes), the girls released in 2007 their third album "Thirteen Tales of Love and Revenge". Produced by Roger Greenawalt (Nils Lofgren, Radish, Ben Kweller), the album has been well-reviewed. The new album has a darker, edgier style, at times using such diverse instruments as an accordion, a calliope, bassoons, a sitar, violins, an autoharp, and a Hawaiian lap steel. It marks a definitive change in the direction of the band, which hitherto has been known as a folk rock band.
The Pierces appeared on the CW television series Gossip Girl, playing their songs "Secret" and "Three Wishes" and also in a promo for Showtime show Dexter.
With talent and elegance the sisters pierced our ears and now they're reaching our hearts...
