World Cafe Playlist for 02/17/2022

Chris Pierce joins host Raina Douris

It’s Chris Pierce. He co-wrote the song “We Can Always Come Back to This” which went to number one on the Billboard Blues Chart after being featured in the TV show This Is Us. Born and raised in Southern California, Pierce’s parents were the first interracial couple in their neighborhood, and many of the songs on his new album, American Silence, deal with the racism he and his family experienced. We’ll hear from Pierce about standing up for change, along with a live performance.
