Check out Devil Will Dance by Nashville’s Jesse Terry who has quickly become a KOAR favorite. Jesse just released his debut album “The Runner” which was produced by The Click Five’s bassist Ethan Mentzer. His parents infused his childhood with music and art, and exposed him to the likes of Jackson Browne, James Taylor, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, Paul Simon, Bruce Springsteen and the Beatles. At a young age he studied with two well-known painters, both of whom encouraged him to enter art school, instead, he focused solely on music.Â Jesse has won a laundry list of songwriter awards and his Americana style is influenced by ’70’s pop, giving him an accessible sound that is different than everything coming out of Nashville today. Next show: Jun 11th at Third and Lindsley in Nashville, Tennessee. For more information contact email@example.com.
“I’m not Prince or Rivers Cuomo who brags about having hundreds of great songs. And to that I would say, Prince, if you have a hundred great songs or a thousand, how about picking a few and putting them on your record that you’ve put out because your last several have sucked. Same for you, Rivers. I say that constructively, you know.” (The Daily Swarm)
Trent on his own material:
Some songs you realize don’t go as well as you wish they would. When I finished “With Teeth” I thought The Collector was my favorite song on the record, but everytime I played that live – there were lots of blank faces looking back at you. You can judge peoples reactions. Full video interview here.
