Listening to the new album, "Take Me Back to the Delta" from Billy Pierce & Friends is like taking a mini musical vacation to New Orleans. The songs are marinated in a Cajun-style country blues sauce and served buffet-style, so as to make sure everyone gets a little of what they have to offer. Along with Pierce, who handles the vocals and slide guitar, is bassist Chris Miller and drummer Billy Meyers. Joining the band is a multitude of guest musicians which include the likes of Sonny Landreth, Charlie Wooton, Waylon Thibodeaux and the guys from Bonerama. – Phillip Smith,
APR 4 Big City Rhythm & Blues features Billy
From Bar one the album rocks, Billy, Sonny and Charlie keep this pot of propulsion stirred with and irresistible drive. Pierce’s slide riffs are ideal for bar-room dancing, and Landreth’s appearance on the title cut provides a satisfying conversation between his and Pierce’s two slide guitars – Steve Daniels, Big City Rhythm & Blues Magazine
