About Ten-Speed Music/Isaac Pierce
Isaac Pierce is a singer/songwriter living in Portland, Oregon. His sound has been described as spectral. His songs are a sort of melodic “modernist folk-lore…existing somewhere between pensivity & nostalgia…”(-Endless Field Studios) Performances are noted for their immediacy.

From 2006-2010 Pierce played/wrote for the Chicago band “ten-speed” with Nick Alvarez (drums) and Mike Thompson (bass). The band dissolved informally in 2010. Since, Pierce has operated out of the Northwest and primarily performs solo under his name or collaborates under the “Ten-Speed Music” moniker.

Isaac is working on an album!

Quotes: “There is a certain Midwestern wistful howl that runs through the work of this writer, fully committed to connecting muse and craft. -Robert Sarazin Blake

“There’s so much goodness here, so much gratitude, and a blissful reservoir that remains unknown” (4.8.2012). -Fuel/Friends
