Jesse Terry is a singer/songwriter with an uncanny ability to weave tales of travel and homecoming, of sorrow and of redemption, into songs that are simultaneously timeless and fresh. Home is now the coastal village of Stonington, Connecticut, but Terry’s music reflects an amalgam of influences, from Nashville to Laurel Canyon. His melodic and lyrically-driven Americana fits naturally on a playlist between cuts from Jackson Browne, Ryan Adams, Josh Ritter and Neil Young.
Terry is fresh off an appearance at Bonnaroo where he shared the stage with the likes of Gregory Alan Isakov and Guster. Bonnaroo also featured Terry on their 2015 NoiseTrade Mixtape alongside artists such as Brandi Carlile and Benjamin Booker. In August, Jesse performed four times at the legendary Philadelphia Folk Festival, whose headliners included Lyle Lovett, Arlo Guthrie and North Mississippi All Stars. The Grand Prize winner of The John Lennon Songwriting Contest and The CMT/NSAI Song Contest, Jesse has garnered worldwide acclaim including the elite honor of performing for US and NATO troops stationed at Thule Air Base in Greenland, and an official endorsement by Stonebridge Guitars International.
The buzz over Jesse Terry continues to build, with tours bringing him from coast to coast and across oceans to the UK, Italy, the Netherlands, and New Zealand. His music has appeared in CW’s Hart of Dixie and PBS’s Roadtrip Nation. Earlier this year, ABC used “Stay Here With Me” for its series “Forever.” Person by person, state by state, country by country, his fans, supporters, and colleagues have grown exponentially in the past few years. A gentle warmth runs through Terry’s voice, and his lyrics, while grounded in wisdom acquired through years on the road, offer up hope for a kinder tomorrow.

UK based singer-songwriter Will Knox has teamed up with producer Fab Dupont to create his latest album The River Ink, out later this year. It follows his award winning debut album The Matador & The Acrobat and EP Lexicon.
His new record blends acoustic & electronic compositions, adding a another dimension to Will’s folk roots. These new influences are partly inspired by the wide range of collaborators he has teamed up with on the record, including Peter Gordeno (Depeche Mode, The Who), Charlie Midnight (James Brown, Joni Mitchell), and Marcus Killian (Lionel Richie, Kaiser Chiefs).
Will has been touring extensively around the US & Europe, including support slots for Art Garfunkel, Judy Tzuke, Andy Grammer, Dotan and Sami Yusuf. Between tours Will is busy as a producer and songwriter; recent collaborations can be heard on Dotan’s no. 1 European record, 7 Layers, (including the hit single ‘Hungry’) and international star, Sami Yusuf’s latest album, The Centre.
“Will Knox’s The Matador And The Acrobat is the most musically coherent collection of songs I have heard all year. The emotion and atmosphere conveyed by the vocals, all of the instruments, and the way they all interplay with a keen ear for dynamics make this album a most interesting and enjoyable experience from start to finish..Rating: 10/10.” ShredNews.com
