Grammy winner Terri Hendrix, joined by legendary producer/guitarist Lloyd Maines, will bring their genre-jumping music and charismatic stage presence to the March 29 Winter Wind Concert, closing out the 2014-15 season. Tickets for the 7:00 pm concert, held in The Depot, 200 South Jones, are $20.
Singer/songwriter Terri Hendrix spins sorrow into joy and wrings wisdom from the blues with a poetic grace and uplifting melodic flair that has endeared her to three generations of loyal fans across the country and around the globe. “A consummate triple threat, excelling as a songwriter, performer and recording artist... she seems equally comfortable with blues, folk, story songs, ballads, folk-rock, country and a surprisingly fresh take on New Orleans-style jazz and jazz swing.” reports the Tucson Weekly.
A classically trained vocalist and deft multi-instrumentalist (guitar, mandolin and harmonica) Hendrix says she lives by the adage “own your own universe,” a lyric from one of her earliest songs. Currently, that universe includes a busy schedule of performances and music workshops with Lloyd Maines, her music partner of 17 years, and her new “Project Five” as Hendrix calls the bounty of forthcoming releases which include her second book and four different album projects which highlight her mix of styles. All five components of “Project Five” will be released in 2015, both individually in physical and digital formats and bundled together.
Though she’s garnered her fair share of industry awards and kudos over the course of the 20 years since the release of her first record, the honor that matters most to Hendrix is the hard-earned loyalty of her grassroots fan base. It’s that support, after all, that has enabled the wholly independent Texas singer-songwriter to “own her own universe” every step of the way, dance around genre pigeonholes and release 14 albums on her own Wilory Records label.
