“It is easy to compare Terry’s heritage and storytelling to that of Jackson Browne, James Taylor or Bruce Springsteen.. A symphonic delight for the heart and soul.” Americana UK
“Each track on this new album is an absolute delight” FATEA
“…the highest compliment I can offer. One of the year’s best for sure” Americana Highways
“Terry essentially re-writes the book on how to strip back your sound and sound incredible in the process” Maverick Magazine
With his seventh album When We Wander firing up his ever-growing fanbase, Americana singer-songwriter Jesse Terry has ridden out the pandemic like few artists can. Raves from the likes of No Depression (“instant accessibility…brilliance and clarity”) and Pollstar (“it’s easy to imagine hearing his songs on the radio in between cuts by Bob Dylan, James Taylor, Jackson Browne and Joni Mitchell”) are great, but his fan community is what’s truly priceless.
A full-time, international touring artist for the past decade, the John Lennon Songwriting Contest Grand Prize winner and onetime Music Row staff writer normally plays 150 shows a year – from Bonnaroo, to the Philadelphia Folk Festival and AmericanaFest. When We Wander, the first album he wrote since becoming a parent, was recorded live with his band, and the family theme courses through it like a river through a canyon. Schiffer Kids will release Jesse’s first children’s book “If I Were the Moon” (based on the song of the same name) on March 28th.
