A true musical journeyman, Jesse Terry has made it his mission to share his love of music fully and completely, without regard for shading his emotions or tempering his convictions. By his own definition, hes never been a cautious individual, but rather one who finds inspiration and optimism in the solace and joy making music brings him; and that which he can impart to others. In that regard, his artistic quest has become satisfying and self-fulfilling.
Things happen for me at the right place and time when Im focusing on my art and connecting with people, Jesse suggests. Ive always had the desire to spread peace and unity through my music. This gives me a tangible purpose, even when life doesnt seem to make much sense.
That ability to create a connection, to bare his soul and express his emotions through his songs have been the defining thread in a career thats spawned five albums (The Runner, Stay Here With Me, Empty Seat on a Plane, and his latest pair, Stargazer and Natural) as well as an EP (The Calm and the Storm) as part of a career that began in 2010. Its evolved and expanded ever since, thanks to a tour schedule thats found him playing over 1,000 shows in the past eight years and taken him across the country and to points well beyond The UK, Germany, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Greenland, and New Zealand included. Its given him a fresh perspective on the world and additional insights into its common humanity, sentiments and a sensibility that continues to impact his music.
Its about inclusiveness, Jesse insists. I love that music can bring all kinds of people together. I feel so lucky to be making music for a living. I dont mind the long drives and the long hours, because thats all part of the journey. And once you stop loving it, you stop living it.
Indeed, thats at the core of his convictions. So much of my music is about expressing the joy of the journey and finding strength and resiliency to battle through the difficult times, he muses. Touring the world has given me a very different perspective. Were all part of a global family.
