Hailing from Boston, Pierce Cailan has established an original voice in folk music through the influences surrounding him: Indie rock, American and English folk, acoustic instrumental music, and Early music. Serene melodies over an entrancing soundscape of acoustic guitars and piano will be found here, with lyrics that challenge the mind and shatter the cliches. The music of Pierce Cailan will both soothe and stir the spirit. Pierce Cailan's debut album, Passerine Myth, vol.1, tells a mystical tale of loss, love, ambition, and redemption through modernized forms of Occitan Lyric Poetry, the lyrical forms of the troubadours of the High Middle Ages. This story is no escapist fantasy, but a stark confrontation of every human's quest for legacy, and denial of their mortality. Passerine Myth, vol.1 begins the story of one man's journey to embrace life as it truly is: precious, beautiful, and temporary.
