Song Circle Music Parties

Do you sing and write songs? Play guitar, piano, mandolin, ukelele, cello or any other acoustic instrument? Join us for one of our Song Circle Music Parties.

They’re a super casual hangout. Musicians trading songs. Like an open mic without a mic. They usually happen around lunchtime and last for a few hours. Different locations and hosts each time.

If you’d like to join our next song circle, write me at drew at insidelands dot org and I’ll reply with the details.

New music video: “Fight or Flight” featuring Jeff Campbell of Static & Surrender

Here’s something fun that happened. A few weeks before the 2016 election, after a series of sleepless nights, I woke up before dawn with this song in my head.

Up until then, I’d been in a creative drought for years. But the tension of the campaign ended up inspiring me in unexpected ways. For the first time in 8 years, I’d finished a song I felt good about.

So I asked my friend Jeff Campbell—leader of Pine & Battery, Static & Surrender and one of my musical heroes—if he’d produce the track. He went a step further and ended up playing guitar, arranging vocals, and writing the intro and bridge for the song.

Hard to put into words how lucky I feel to have such a supportive friend. Big thanks also to the fantastically talented Gawain Mathews for capturing the Kings of Leon meets Pete Yorn sound I had in my head, and to Rick Munoz who rocked like a thunder god on the drums.

When you download my song “Fight or Flight” at drewpearce.bandcamp.com, 100% of my proceeds will be donated to UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency who are helping refugee children and families receive life-saving relief and support.

Thanks for listening and supporting the cause!
