Pierson Saxon


Pierson Saxon is an Austin, Texas-based Blue-Eyed Soul / Country singer-songwriter

Think the buttery voice of Bill Withers meets the folksy finger-picking of Townes Van Zandt. Pierson started out playing piano at the age of 5 and studied classical for nearly a decade before making the switch to contemporary music. He was mentored by renowned Dallas pianist, Julie Bonk, well known in Texas for teaching the inimitable Norah Jones. Julie nurtured Pierson’s knack for performance by letting him sit in on her set breaks at a weekly Sunday gospel brunch in east Dallas’ Oak Cliff neighborhood. He moved to Austin at the age of 18 to pursue a career in original music.

Since then, Pierson has toured all over the U.S. and internationally both as a solo artist and an organ player in the up and coming gospel-rock group, Dr. Joe. Pierson can be found playing all over Austin and the rest of Texas on a regular basis.
