JESSE TERRY FULL BIO
Jesse Terry is an internationally award-winning singer-songwriter whose transcendent life and music make him one of the most prolific indie artists today; his intimacy with audiences, sincerity, and approachability solidifying him as a favorite at nationwide live venues and concert series. With three full-length albums, The Runner, Empty Seat On A Plane, and Stay Here With Me, this salt of the earth musician’s lyrical mastery, emotional depth, and soothing voice have often been compared to the likes of Ryan Adams, Jackson Browne, Ray LaMontagne, and James Taylor, reaching deep into listeners’ hearts to envelope them in shared joy, sadness, love, and unrelenting hope. The Grand Prize winner of The John Lennon Songwriting Contest, The NSAI/CMT Song Contest, and The We Are Listening Singer/Songwriter Awards, he has garnered worldwide acclaim including the elite honor of performing for US and NATO troops stationed at Thule Air Base in Greenland, and an official endorsement by Stonebridge Guitars International.

“His ability to craft memorable songs is complimented by his supreme ability to deliver them in a sometimes funny, sometimes gut wrenching, but always sincere and authentic manner,”  praises Dave Dircks, host of the #1 Acoustic Podcast on iTunes, Acoustic Long Island. “At the core of it all, his personality – sunny naivety meets gritty wisdom – is what sets Jesse Terry apart…”

On his own from a young age, Jesse defied the odds by nurturing his passion for music; attending the prestigious Berklee College of Music, landing a Nashville Publishing deal only two months after graduation, touring the globe, and building a close and ever-expanding fan base who avidly funded his last two albums via Pledge Music campaigns. His audience grew quickly from one, his grandmother who was lulled to sleep by his guitar playing and toe-tapping, into a strong grassroots foundation of worldwide individuals who were captivated in settings spanning from intimate listening rooms to house concerts and festivals both small and large. Person by person, state by state, country by country, his fans, supporters, and colleagues have grown exponentially in the past few years, including at multiple gigs where he opened for major artists such as Darrell Scott, Paula Cole, Tony Lucca, Liz Longley, and founder of Jefferson Airplane, Marty Balin.

Though the momentum of his career accelerates daily, he attributes his success to his wife and touring partner, Jess, saying her unwavering support was the reason for his first full tour. Cosmically drawn to each other when they met in the South Pacific in 2010, and married only six months later, Jesse and Jess epitomize the kind of love that romantics throughout time have both sought after and struggled to describe. As being apart wrenched their hearts more and more whenever Jesse toured for days, then weeks at a time, the couple decided to unite on all fronts, and travel the country and world together. The solid foundation behind her husband’s career in all ways from being his muse and moral support to setting up the stage and co-managing the family business, together the two tour nonstop; their only address the blur of a license plate number as it flies down whichever street they happen to traverse.

The road now his home, his fans his family, and Jess his rock, Jesse Terry’s music and life are truly about the journey. His original sound continues to galvanize national and global exposure, including recent placements on the CW’s “Hart of Dixie,” Lufthansa Airlines, and PBS’ “Roadtrip Nation,” fueling the prospects of his future steadily ablaze, trails of accolades following in his wake.

“(He’s) a force to be reckoned with,” iconic DJ of NYC’s Rock & Roots Public Radio WFUV John Platt calls Jesse. “His well-crafted songs rank right there with Ryan Adams, Rhett Miller, and other masters of alt-country.” Legendary Tony Arata, renowned singer-songwriter and 2012 Inductee into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame lauded him by saying, “I have been a fan of Jesse Terry since the first time I heard him. He’s a humble – and humbling – talent.”

Undoubtedly intrepid, yet refreshingly genuine and modest, Jesse sums up his view on success, close connection with fans and strangers alike, and excitement for each day with an apropos quote from the film Into the Wild:

“Happiness,” he says, “is only real when shared.”

Seasick Steve announced the release of his new single ‘Down On The Farm’, for June 17th, available to download now.

Hot on the heels of his sold-out headline UK tour, Steve is set to release album opener and fan favourite ‘Down On The Farm,’ another inimitably brilliant track that fuses all the best elements of rock n’ roll and bluegrass from a bygone time.

Known to his fervent fan base as an electrifying live performer, Steve was recently joined on stage by John Paul Jones at his rousing headline show at London’s Roundhouse, and fans can look forward to seeing Steve throughout the summer festival period, with appearances at Glastonbury and Lounge On The Farm amongst many others.

Hubcap Music, Steve’s 6th studio album and currently number one on the UK Record Store Chart, has been his most critically acclaimed to date and follows in the wake of Gold Certified album ‘You Can’t Teach An Old Dog New Tricks’.

As well as featuring in Steve’s incredible live show, John Paul Jones also worked with Steve and performed on the recording sessions for ‘Hubcap Music’, which features a roll call of incredible artists including Jack White, Luther Dickinson and Elizabeth Cook.
