Musician, Record Producer, Writer, and foremost a Blues Dude.  Leroy's father was a musician and Leroy started on guitar around age 14.  After attending St. Louis schools, Leroy enrolled at Beloit University in Wisconsin in the late 1960's.  Now well immersed in the Blues, Leroy decided to promote blues concerts which included many now famous artists such as; Son House, BB King, JB Hutto, Furry Lewis, Roosevelt Sykes, Junior Wells, and Fred McDowell.
During 1967, Leroy performed on stage with Fred McDowell of Como, MS and these two musicians became friends with Leroy visiting Fred in Mississippi on numerous occasions.  While in the South, Leroy also traveled into Alabama to meet another bluesman named Johnny Shines.  Johnny and Leroy played guitar together and also became friends.  Johnny Shines had a tremendous amount of experience and a long history playing in Chicago and throughout the South.  In his younger years of the late 1930's, Mr. Shines had played with the legendary Robert Johnson.

In 2015, Leroy Jodie Pierson continues to carry forward the early Country Blues of Robert Johnson, Johnny Shines, Mississippi Fred McDowell, and others.  You can catch Leroy playing regular gigs in St Louis 2-3 times a week.  Stop in and visit with a nice guy and you can hear a bit of history.
