Local artist Pierce Alexander’s “Starlight Set You Free,” out today, is the third track of his produced and mixed by local composer/producer/guitarist Lee Barbour. “This song is different from some of my previous releases in that the instrumentation is more organic — more guitar and piano oriented and less synthesizer,” Alexander says. “The song is basically about the beginnings of a relationship and the collection of moments that come along with that.”

Alexander will perform the track at his show on Wed. Aug. 18 at Tin Roof along with local songwriter Cole Collins and NOLA duo Renshaw Davis.
