(Press Release) New England-based singer/songwriter Jesse Terry will release his new album Stargazer on September 15th. His fourth full-length album and follow-up to 2013's Stay Here With Me, Stargazer is Terry's most ambitious record to date, a lushly orchestrated collection of pertinent new songs centered around finding hope in a seemingly hopeless time, picking resilience over recrimination, and optimism over oblivion. Today, he released his new single "Dangerous Times," a timely tune one can't help but relate to in these turbulent days.
Listen to "Dangerous Times" HERE.
"'Dangerous Times' is about holding on to one another and finding strength and unity in times of chaos, confusion and upheaval," stated Terry. "I feel like so many of us are experiencing that turbulence right now in this country. I still have hope that the craziness we're going through will ultimately lead to sweeping changes in the future; greater understanding, love, tolerance, equality and unity."
Drawing inspiration from a diverse pool of influences - from vintage Jeff Lynne-produced pop to Roy Orbison's "In Dreams" to The Man Who-era Travis - Stargazer is notable for the diversity of its sonic palette. Terry is as adept at cross-pollinating spacey rockabilly with power pop ("Dance in Our Old Shoes") as he is at writing dreamy, Beatlesesque ballads about a loved one's toxic personality ("Kaleidoscope"); as comfortable at the helm of a charging, Springsteen-down-South ode to the new Nashville ("Runaway Town") as he is singing a heartbreakingly tender lullaby to a European capital ("Dear Amsterdam").
Listen to "Woken The Wildflowers" HERE.
Stargazer was produced with multi-instrumentalist collaborator Josh Kaler in Nashville's sumptuous EastSide Manor Studios with renowned composer Danny Mitchell adding string arrangements.
"Jesse Terry is a gentle soul with a formidable songwriting talent. His new album Stargazer is a big step forward for him artistically." - John Platt, WFUV
