Sarah Pierce, the daughter of a cowboy, raised in a family of cattlemen, was born in Rockford, Illinois and raised in rural West Texas. In the 6th grade she was kicked out of the children’s choir because she sang too low…her incredible alto voice already making itself be known. She would later get on her mare and sing to the cattle in the fields, as Pierce says “They didn’t seem to mind”.
Sarah’s dream of becoming a legitimate singer began to take shape at age 12, singing in her stepfathers band.
Always studying voice, after receiving her degree in medical science she began her musical journey. One that she is still traveling today.
Sarah has toured hundreds of thousands of miles – both domestic and foreign – receiving rave reviews at fairs, festivals, conventions, and concert dates from New York City to Los Angeles and Northern British Columbia to San Antonio, France, Italy, Germany, and Scandinavia. Her willingness to self-promote her music has included a driving tour of 250 NPR/AC/Country radio stations across the country, doing interviews and live on-air performances. In addition, she has been seen in performance on MTV and was heard as the singing voice of Calamity Jane on the Emmy-nominated Time-Life television mini-series, The Wild West.
With the release of her eighth album, Bring It On, and the first single, Butterfly Tattoo, going to #5 in the nation on Independent Country Charts, Sarah once again was able to show that she is an absolutely viable artist both commercially and more importantly creatively. Sarah is now releasing her 9th CD, Barbed Wire.
“Barbed Wire has been a long time coming. It definitely could be seen as a follow up to my autobiographical Cowboy’s Daughter CD. This one is absolutely ‘all cards on the table.’ That is what I love most about it…having the courage to not chase anything just write my songs. Tell the truth, and let the chips fall as they may!”
“Barbed Wire came to life after my husband, Merel Bregante, and I moved to the country. One day, while clearing pasture, I came across an old rusted barbed wire fence. I did some research and found that it was manufactured by hand in 1876. I held it in my hand and thought…this looks like me.”
‘Pounded metal in the shape of a shooting star. Trapped by three rusted wires…kind of like my heart.’ Barbed Wire, ©2014, Lucylite Music – BMI
Her lyrics daze with elegant poetry that carries the listener over wide musical vistas on each soul-bearing turn of her incomparable voice.” – Los Angeles Times
“I love Sarah’s music…she touches the heart and soul of every listener and she is a great addition to my national radio show anytime I get her into the mix” -Laney Goodman, Women In Music -WUMB Boston, MA
