Jesse Terry bio
Jesse has a new EP available on Noisetrade, The Calm and the Storm
Jesse Terry is an internationally touring, award-winning singer-songwriter whose intimacy with audiences, sincerity, and approachability has solidified him as a favorite at festivals and live venues nationwide. 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, Josh Ritter, 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 and The CMT/NSAI Song Contest, 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…” 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.
“(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.” 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.” His original sound continually galvanizes 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, with long trails of accolades following in his wake.
Peacock has a new single just released on March 24, “The Only Way Out.”
The perfect marriage of Ann Wilson and Sheryl Crow, Sarah Peacock is a country-rock powerhouse! Peacock delivers intensity and passion while her memorable melodies soar over heartfelt lyrics. And any die hard Peacock fan will tell you she is just as infectious off the stage as she is on it.
Sarah’s song “Hurricane” won best song in the 2014 American Songwriting Awards. Her song, “Beautiful” was a winner in the 2014 Unsigned Only Competition. Sarah was also named The Listening Room Network’s Artist Of The Year, and she has recently received endorsements from Taylor Guitars and DR Strings. This has proved to be quite a year for Sarah. In June she showcased at Nashville’s CMA Fest and is currently wrapping up a brand new project with Nashville producer Ken Coomer.
First impressions of Nashville country-rock singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Sarah Peacock center around her distinctive, powerful “smoky” voice, as it was aptly described by renowned music journalist, Craig Havighurst, following a performance at the famed Music City Roots show.
Albuquerque Sky (Feb, 2013) is the latest full-length studio release from Sarah Peacock. Peacock produced the entire album over 15 months, 70,000 miles, and 300 shows in various studios, homes, closets, cars, airplanes, and hotels across America in 46 different states. It was mixed and mastered in Nashville and has received critically acclaimed reviews. She released Live From The Red Clay Theatre in October 2013 with her band and continues to perform 250 dates a year worldwide. Her most notable performance last year was the CBS Morning Show in New York City (performing “Hurricane,” a tribute song to Hurricane Sandy victims).
