Alice Terry sounds like she's had three husbands and killed them all.
Her long-awaited album 'The Fear Of' is being released on June 15th and a small run of shows will follow to celebrate.
Her debut single Emotion, released July last year, went to number one on the iTunes blues charts within hours. The sold out launch that followed proved why Terry has been nicknamed ‘Sydney’s first lady of blues’.
Her spirited performances and clever writing have steadily gained recognition and support from audiences and peers alike. Supports include: Allen Stone; Beth Hart; St Paul & the Broken Bones; Thirsty Merc; Matt Corby; and The Waifs, and festival appearances at: Sydney Festival Main Stage; Woodford Folk; Narooma Blues and Rockabilly; and Thredbo Blues Festivals, just to name a few.
According to Grammy nominee Beth Hart, Alice Terry is “The real deal”. She has the ability to effortlessly combine the best parts of blues, folk, jazz and country to create this music which is both sexy and heartbreaking at the same time.
“Alice Terry is an undeniable combination of old school chanteuse and the grit of Janis Joplin. Her songs are emotional without being cloying, and pair equal measures regret and lament, with cheek and sass. If the swoops and croons are anything to go by, Terry is a singer equally comfortable howling at the moon for the hell of it as she is walking the line of soul-wrenching honesty.” - The Music
