"Pettis offers sustenance for mind and spirit, packaged in an amiable, easily digestible musical form." - Dirty Linen. “Pierce Pettis doesn’t write mere songs, he writes literature. End to end the songwriting is brilliant. His writing just gets better all the time and his singing is marvelous, wry and warm." - Sing Out!
“I have seen Houston play the muted, thoughtful folk musician and I have seen him revelling in the role of a brash rock star sometimes on the same night. But whichever Brian Houston pitches up, one thing remains constant and that is the beauty of the music. His songs hark back to James Taylor in his absolute prime but coloured by a philosophy that says, never take yourself too seriously, for too long.” – Maverick Magazine.
