Here we have an artist who genuinely has individual artistic talent. Of course a backing band is always helpful, but I think you know you have hit upon a true star when an acoustic simple set can have you wanting more. Jesse Terry has done just that with his raw emotion, exquisite vocals and prime plucking on his guitar. This is perfect summer music, windows down music and something you’d like to have on while sipping lemonade outside at the beach.
On July 10th critically-acclaimed singer-songwriter Jesse Terry releases his most courageously emotional music, Empty Seat on a Plane. “Songwriting is a healing force for me. I’ve used it to talk about my turbulent childhood, and to express emotions about love, loss, and hope. Songwriting saved my life—I was in a dark place before it found me,” the NYC-based troubadour reveals. Terry refined his songcraft at Berklee College Of Music, where he studied songwriting and performance. Upon graduation, he landed a plum gig as a staff songwriter for a respected publishing house in Nashville, and dove into Music City’s vibrant local scene.
His music reminds me a little bit of Matt Nathanson and Ryan Adams combined; both of which are a very good thing in my mind and to my ears. His music is definitely worthy of using the repeat button.
