New England singer songwriter Jesse Terry will be returning to the UK to join friend and fellow songwriter Callaghan on her April tour. The pair recently completed a series of sell-out shows in the US and will open in Liverpool on Tuesday 17th April. Jesse has a new album, his fifth, which is called ‘Natural’ and will be released on 30th March and features appearances from special guests Dar Williams, Kim Richey, Cary Ann Hearst of Shovels & Rope, Liz Longley, Sarah Darling, Annie Clements and Erin Rae.
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. The ability to create a connection, to bare his soul and express his emotions through his songs have been the defining thread in a career that’s spawned five albums as part of a career that began in 2010. What Jesse and producer Josh Kaler decided to do with Natural was to make an album that featured some of the female singers he most admired. The talent that they brought to the project helped propel the album to another realm, creating an additional layer of emotional impact. The album sees Jesse revisiting some of his older songs, such as the opening track ‘Kaleidoscope’ which was previously an upbeat rocker on his ‘Stargazer’ album and is now transformed into a gentle lullaby featuring duelling ukuleles, upright bass and sweet harmonies.
