TERRY LEE HALE: One of the most powerful singer-songwriters the world has ever produced, Terry Lee Hale has been making great records for twenty five years.
He first made an impact on the Seattle scene, playing the clubs and bars with his open guitar tunings and deeply interesting, sometimes dangerous songs, and went on to build a faithful fan base that’s spread around the planet.
In 2013, he delivered The Long Draw on Glitterhouse Records, and Bound, Chained, Fettered appeared in 2016, built from truthful stories sung with a voice that reflects and carries the emotional impact of time, obstacles overcome and wisdom earned.
Making a rare visit to these shores, those who have seen the man in action will tell you that this is as good as it gets.
“Rarely has he sounded better” – AmericanaUK writer Paul Kerr
“The Long Draw is packed with great music and stories, from a man who is not only a very talented musician, he is also an artist. The Long Draw is one of 2013’s best CDs and in this critic’s view it is a masterpiece” (Paul Riley – Country Music People UK)
“Hale has made the record that Dylan seems nowadays incapable of thinking and create. He perfectly knows the rules of songwriting and still handles them masterfully” (GIancarlo Susanna – Outsider Italy)
“This Texan born, Paris based songwriter has released one of the better albums of the year.” (Paul Kerr – Americana.UK.com)
