Piers Faccini (born Piers Damian G. Faccini in 1970 in Luton, Bedfordshire, England) is an English singer, painter and songwriter.

Faccini's father is Italian and his mother is English. His family moved to France when he was five years old.

He went to Eton College, a private school near Windsor in Berkshire.

Faccini first appeared on the music scene in London in 1997, when he co-founded with performance poet Francesca Beard the group Charley Marlowe, playing spoken word gigs initially, and moving on to acoustic melodies after. It became a band when percussionist Frank Byng and guitarist Lucas Suarez joined them, playing regular gigs on the London scene and releasing the ep ''this could be you''. During that time, he has also produced soundtracks for BBC and Channel 4. The band split in 2001 when Faccini decided he did not want to write music for the band anymore, but to produce music on his own.

Although he sings in English, the management company for his albums is Corida, based in Paris.

Faccini has sung for Vincent Ségal on his album. He has also produced songs for Sébastien Martel and DJ Shalom.
