His musical background includes work as a double bassist in the Burbank Symphony for two years and in several touring rock bands. Also a published poet, his poetry is included in the anthology, 'Four Valley Poets.' Terence's new CD Sleeper, his third release, brings his musical poetry and performance to a new level. The 12 finely crafted originals flow with hauntingly poetic images and elements of folk, roots, blues, country & bluegrass. Sleeper was produced by Terence and Dennis Hrbek and features performances by Jim Allen on guitar, mandolin & accordion, Dan Bonis on dobro, lap steel & 12 string slide, Cadence Carroll on djembe & percussion, Brian Nesgoda on drums, Charlie Karp on electric guitar (Buddy Miles) and Gordon Roehrer on bass. Prior releases by Terence include Division Street and Waterproof, both of which have received excellent reviews and national radio airplay. 'Familiar Mysteries', a song from Waterproof, was selected as the title track on the second CD from the Garland Appeal, the charity for breast cancer research started in memory of Linda McCartney and sanctioned by Paul. Since his arrival in New York, Terence has shared the stage with such performers as Richard Shindell, Lucy Kaplansky, Dar Williams, Richie Havens and Christine Lavin, at such venues as The Bottom Line, Emelin Theatre, Iron Horse Music Hall and The Towne Crier. In 1999, Terence was a featured performer in the New Artist Showcase at the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, and in April 2001 was a New Folk winner at the New Jersey Folk Festival. He was also a finalist in Tom Rush's Club 47 Songwriting/Performance Competition. 'The best singer/songwriter you've never heard!' - Jim Motavali, WPKN radio & The Fairfield Weekly -.
