Timmy Pierce
Just a small town boy with a voice and a dream: that pretty sets the stage for solo performer Timmy Pierce. A native of Hartsville, South Carolina music and the arts has always played a role in his life. Even at the age of 4 when he began dancing with a local studio “Dance World.” It was at this early stage in life that his father placed a microphone in his hand and his love for singing continued to grow. His first performance as dictated in a picture on his debut album “Dreamchaser” was at the local “Center Theater” in front a capacity crowd. He continued performing throughout his early years with the help of “Brenda Cranford School of Dance.” Junior high brought out another side of the musical world to Timmy. It was here that he began playing his first instrument the alto saxophone. He would continue to play the saxophone throughout high school and well into college, playing in numerous bands and ensembles. Well rounded is quite the understatement in describing his childhood. From sports to an all male a capella group, his involvement was quite diverse. It was in high school that he decided to pick up his dad's old guitar. With a little help from dad to learn a few chords, Timmy learned his first song "Last Kiss." His strong Christian faith allowed Timmy to quickly begin writing his first songs. From this it lead him into his first band "Common Youth." The group enjoyed much success in its short life; playing venues, and churches all over the region. His musical abilities continued to blossom into college as a music education major at the University of South Carolina. He was a part of many ensembles and organizations including the university chorus, “Sound Check” (an all male a capella group), Kappa Kappa Psi (National honorary fraternity for college bandmembers), Baptist College Ministry praise band, as well as clinician for the award winning Lewisville High School Marching Band.
Timmy also has several theatrical experiences included in his resume. His “off-off-off-off Broadway debut” began in high school when he was given the lead role of "Finch" in "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying." He continued on to star as "Japheth" in "Two by Two" in a local community production. Timmy's last performance was as the lead role of "Max" in the Florence Little Theatre's production of "Lend Me a Tenor” in which he later received an award from the local guild for "best actor" for this performance.

In 2007, Timmy decided to enter "corporate America." However, he continued to keep up with his passion for music. He teamed up with an old friend Arty Capell to form an acoustic duo called "Hartsville." The duo enjoyed much local success. It was here that he found a true love for the acoustic sound and performance.
Upon realizing moving from cubicle to cubicle and “corporate America” just wasn’t his thing, Timmy continued to perfect his solo acoustic performance. And in 2008 he began his career with Carnival Cruise Lines as a solo artist aboard the Carnival Holiday. In his young stint in the industry his ability has taken him many places and several ships throughout the fleet including the Carnival Holiday, Carnival Conquest, Carnival Ecstasy, and the Carnival Fantasy. Timmy is currently approaching his third year with Carnival Cruise Lines and has recently been hand selected to join the elite entertainment team and perform on Carnival’s newest ship the Carnival Magic. The Carnival Magic begins its inaugural voyage May 1 out of Venice, Italy and will continuing sailing Europe throughout the summer before sailing to its US homeport of Galveston, Texas in November.
In the recent months Timmy has also released his first full professional solo album entitled “Dreamchaser.” With the help of Greg Dampier on percussion and Kevin Smith’s recording, this album provides the listener with a variety of musical genres however keeping that acoustic flavor. This album can be found for purchase currently at cdbaby.com. However, it is Timmy’s belief that this album as well as his career would not be possible without the love and support of God, his family and friends, and certainly you the fans. Without you, none of these dreams would even be possible. Many thanks to all of you and may God Bless!
