TERI is a long time resident on the island of Maui in Hawaii where she performs whenever she's not on the road touring. She also had the house band for NBC's REAL PEOPLE. TERI has sung with or opened for: LEON RUSSELL, LEO KOTTKE, PETER ROWAN, STEVE GILETTE, DAVID CROSBY, HOYT AXTON, TANYA TUCKER, THE FABULOUS THUNDERBIRDS, DON HENLEY, and BONNIE RAITT among others and of course WILLIE NELSON, who she singles out as a great inspiration, saying, "He is one artist who not only has a heart of gold, but lives by it too."
But the real story here is her music. Belying her fragile, chiseled, blue-eyed beauty, TERI's voice is rich and powerful; a blues instrument of Joplinesque power, yet capable of bringing tears to an audience with the softest of ballads. Add an uncanny knack for writing songs that explore not only herself, but her world and her faith and you have a compelling performer of the highest order.
But these are just words, find the music, then listen, then you'll know.
