About Terri Lynn & Thunder Blues
I was born and raised in Nashville Tennessee. 20 years ago when I started singing Blues instead of rock and Country I was one of the few people here doing that genre. I hosted the only writers night with a 5 piece sight reading chart band for almost 12 years.
John has played on many well known performers cds. And has traveled the world backing up some of the biggest talents around. recently Ronnie Milsap...A superb player on MANY instruments from lap steel to dobro and sevreal wind instruments.
Terri Lynn blues
Terri Lynn, Nashville native, has performed in some of the best rooms in town. She hosted the Writer's Night with Chart Band for over ten years and has created quite a following for herself. She sings the blues like no one else and has a unique style of her own. http://www.mkoc.com/TerriLynn/ 8-18-05 NASHVILLE MUSIC GUIDE BY: ABBEY DUKES TERRI LYNN TAKES CENTER STAGE Like a cat, Terri Lynn slinks into the stage light, sliding and swaying, purring and growling. She is draped in glitter and sequins, a sexy creature, giving life to the silky, smooth notes produced by her band. Behind the microphone, she commands the presence of a preacher, a poet, a politician, but mainly a star. Al eyes in the audience at The Sutler are locked and intensely focused as Terri Lynn and her band transport the crowd to Harlem in the 1920's, a street corner in New Orleans, or a shack in the muddy Delta of Mississippi. Terri Lynn, backed by drummer Kevin Kathey, bassist Ted Reynolds, keyboardist Ken Lush, and guitarist Jack Roulier deliver music too complex to be fenced by labels. Their songs are too smart to be blues, and too emotional to be jazz. Terri Lynn describes her work as "cool blues". She relates a history of performance beginning in high school with rock, moving into country rock, then pure country, blue country, blues, and then finally, "cool blues". Terri Lynn and her band are in the process of tying up an album for release. She closed the set with the albums title track BLUE STORM. Reflecting the band performance throughout the evening, the song was chilling, erotic and passionate. The keyboard thundered like rain drops and hail, as Terri Lynn's voice spiraled from lusty sighs to desperate , gravely howls. Not an eye in the audience dared lose focus as Terri Lynn described an emotional state she hoped nobody has ever seen. Some of the other songs from the evening included, "Lookin' For A Rainbow In My Tears" , the sexy "Moody Rudy", "Twenty Four Hour Love", and "Caught A Touch Of Your Love". With the attitude of Aretha Franklin, the deeply moody notes of Billie Holiday, and the southern flavor of Patsy Cline, Terri Lynn is a fiery mixture that cannot be ignored. Blue Storm will be an explosive addition to any music catalog.
