Connecticut-based artist Jesse Terry has announced his return to the UK next month in support of his most recent album ‘When We Wander’, the first he wrote since becoming a parent. Since the release of the album, he also created an amazing little children’s book “If I Were the Moon” (based on the song of the same name) which was released on May 28th by Schiffer Kids.

The stage has been Terry’s home for a decade, playing around 150 shows a year, from Bonnaroo to the Philadelphia Folk Festival, the 30A Songwriters Festival to AmericanaFest. When the pandemic cancelled concerts and delayed the album’s release, he pivoted to performing online and found a strong new connection to his fans, who had helped fund his albums all along. “My musical tribe has always been there for me,” he says with gratitude. “I don’t take a second of my career or my life for granted. I always continue to fight for it and to reach higher and strive to be a better artist and human being.”

Recorded in 2019 in Nashville with producer Neilson Hubbard (Mary Gauthier, Glen Phillips), ‘When We Wander’, which we described as “a symphonic delight for the heart and soul” in our review, was recorded live in the studio, a first for his career. “I wanted to try that Jason Isbell, Chris Stapleton, Neil Young approach to live recording, prioritizing emotion and raw performances over perfection. I loved that experience.”

Terry’s appreciation in the face of unexpected changes underpins his work.  As he sings in ‘Pretty Good Hand’ off the new album: “I don’t know if I’ll ever ride in no fancy limousine, but…I got somebody who understands, And that’s a pretty good hand.”
