JESSE TERRY
JESSE TERRY
DOORS: 7 pm
MUSIC: 8 PM

"Jesse Terry is a gentle soul with a formidable songwriting talent. His new album Stargazer is a big step forward for him artistically."

- John Platt - WFUV - NYC

"As a young artist, Terry would fit right in with the songwriters of the 1960s and 70s.  Listening to his music, its easy to imagine hearing his songs on the radio in between cuts by Bob Dylan, James Taylor, Jackson Browne and Joni Mitchell."

- Jay Smith - Pollstar.com


On the eponymous title track of Stargazer, the lushly orchestrated and existentially optimistic fourth LP from singer/songwriter Jesse Terry, the notion of personal unhappiness is framed in terms of a cosmic choice: Go on stargazer, I know how much it hurts / But you are free now to pick your universe. Infused with the warmth of a beautifully arranged string quartet and the otherworldly tremor of a lap steel guitar, Stargazer unfurls as a melodic Zen koan, a deep intuition all of us have at one point or another that the extent of our suffering  no matter its apparent source or point of origin  is largely up to us. The worlds frequent brutality and indifference are undeniable facts of life, facts that can feel oppressive and impenetrable. True freedom inheres in our ability to choose hope  to pick resilience over recrimination, optimism over oblivion. Taking that timeless and hard-won kernel of wisdom as his starting point  the recognition that hopelessness is the worst kind of human prison   Terrys lustrous, earnest Stargazer is precisely the kind of record we need in these seemingly hopeless times.
