Cultivating a new sound blending psychedelic, indie-synth, krautrock, and Avant Garde with touches of industrial pop, PIERA has found a way to create something fresh and inspiring in contrast to the mainstream’s oversaturated and stale copy-of-a-copy void. 

With a #1 Electronic Album on the RMR charts in June, PIERA just came off from 6 stellar shows —  opening for 80’s iconic synth group, Berlin, on August 7th in Montclair, and The Untouchables and Bow Wow Wow on September 3rd in Santa Clarita, headlining at The Silverlake Lounge on September 10th, as special guests at the iconic Punk Museum founder, Tequila Mockingbird’s “Sunday Club”, at the Oracle Tavern in Downtown Los Angeles on September 26th as part of her annual Dada Bauhaus Masquerade Ball, opening for Oingo-Boingo on October 8th at The Canyon in Santa Clarita, and for Brit Pop sensation ABC on November 18th at The Canyon in Agoura and A Flock of Seagulls on December 10th

Without label support or formal management, PIERA has managed to captivate new audiences everywhere they perform and have established themselves as one of the most exciting new acts to watch in 2022. 

What started out as an experimental synthpop record and a synchronistic opportunity to open for the iconic 80s synth-rock band BERLIN in August morphed into a string of mind-blowing opportunities and impressive shows to open for the gamut of the who’s-who in iconic synthpop, culminating into an exhilarating night on December 10th in Agoura Hills, CA at the Canyon Club opening for A FLOCK OF SEAGULLS.

December 10th’s  performance opening for A FLOCK OF SEAGULLS was a perfect pairing, bringing together the original and iconic 80s superstars and the pioneers of a new sound blending their signature brew of psychedelic and electronic synth rock.

PIERA owned the stage and everyone in the club was transfixed. Like an oracle, the beauty wailed deep, personal, and cosmic melodies in a way that very few have heard before, as she allowed her body to carry and be explored by the powerful sound bath surrounding her. Within her multi-dimensional persona lie elements reminiscent of a modern-day prophet, like Patti Smith, a seer, yet wrapped in another cloth for a new generation.

Micah Plissner, behind the analogue synths and table of guitar pedals and modular devices, orchestrated a sonic and beat-driven soundscape that moved the crowd from the first song to the last. Loud applause and cheers were heard after every song, signaling a new era and appreciation for modern electronic music that is both structured into crowd pleasing songs and anthems. As a unit, they are completely unique, powerful, and express a limitlessness of imagination.

PIERA is the kind of duo we expect will get snapped up by labels such as ASTRALWERKS, MUTE RECORDS or the like… and expect LA scene bookers like Restless Nites and others, as well as the big festival circuits to catch on quickly and add them to their regular lineups. 

A FLOCK OF SEAGULLS put on a stellar, fan-crazed performance, and behind the scenes gave PIERA a big thumbs up, sharing how they and their team enjoyed listening to their entire set backstage. It was a wonderful night of mutual admiration and celebration for both bands. Klein mentioned how she was deeply touched by the honor and privilege of performing with such iconic artists over the past year and what a special treat it was to connect with A FLOCK OF SEAGULLS and team backstage. “They are truly talented, kind…..and wonderful people. I hope our paths cross again someday.”

Cosmic Reaction – An Experimental Psychedelic Art Collage Video
(About The Video – In 2018 PIERA went to Puerto Rico to film their video for Cosmic Reaction. Some parts were also filmed in Joshua Tree, and some in and around the Los Angeles area. The entire PIERA album is very cosmic and mystical and sparked a desire in Klein to showcase her character/avatar waking up in different worlds – each environment in high contrast to the next, from the Puerto Rican Jungle of El Yunque to the high California desert, and back home to the rolling hills of Echo Park. The experimental psychedelic art collage was a true collaboration between friends, Piera, her best friend Adrian Arredondo, and Micah Plissner.)

The more in touch you are with the spiritual side of yourself, the more your creativity will explode”.

About PIERA:

Singer/songwriter/producer, Piera Klein and songwriter/producer Micah Plissner aka PIERA have a blending of tone, pitch and composition in their music and vocals, that you just don’t hear every day. It is unique, special, puregenius. There’s a retro mystery experience that connects everything you feel about modern music in PIERA’S sound. Super fans are highly anticipating this next single, “Cosmic Reaction”, hit terrestrial college radio and Spotify, climbing significantly up the charts.

The self-titled album “PIERA” was co-written and produced by Micah and Piera, The single “Cosmic Reaction” – was released in May and quickly climbed up the triple A and College charts. The vision was to create an epic cosmic soundscape that would take the listener on a ride into another dimension, which was greatly achieved. Micah says, “It was originally inspired by psychedelic garage bands like Love, The Sonics, Sky Saxon, and The 13th Floor Elevators and somehow morphed into this. At the same time we wanted to showcase Piera as the interstellar mystic that she is. She definitely has a cosmic energy about her.”

Piera Klein vocals are haunting and pure, a cross between Sade, Terri Nunn, and Enya; but with a more sultry vibe. Piera Klein is also a passionate activist and plays a supportive leadership role in the Los Angeles based non-profit “Visionary Women”. 

Micah and Piera collaborated on the album in different ways, Piera says, “We are an executive committee of 2, requiring both of us to be in full agreement on each song in each stage of production. We both compose melodies, and write lyrics, as well as produce. One rule we have is that if one of us doesn’t like an idea in a song, it gets immediately scratched without an argument. We really trust one another’s instincts and it keeps us moving forward like lightning”. 

Both Micah and Piera are as individual as it gets, but somehow they manage to make it work, PIERA’S music is very distinctive, every song on the album is a singular masterpiece on it’s own. Micah says, “I think everything comes from the spiritual and manifests into the physical, including music. The more in touch you are with the spiritual side of yourself, the more your creativity will explode”.

PIERA is breaking all the rules; with their lyrics you get a snapshot into their private lives, these super sleuths are investigating life and the pursuit of happiness, in a new, unusual way. Piera Klein says, “By following our inner guide, having patience, being willing to learn and grow, and ultimately being unafraid to pursue our true inspirations regardless of what’s trendy at the moment”. 

80’s, Alternative, Dark Synth, Avant-Garde, Rock, Art House, EDM, all good descriptions of PIERA’S music, what ever you want to call it, PIERA is carving out a niche for their own breed of music; with many accomplishments they are well on they’re way to becoming a household name.
