How are you all? I hope everyone is enjoying my free NoiseTrade sampler: www.noisetrade.com/jesseterry
I’m not writing to brag.. In fact, I really value humility above all things – But I wanted you to know what this little new record has accomplished so far. And we are not even at the official release date yet!
- I was selected as one of the Top 100 “Artists on the Verge” by the esteemed New Music Seminar. This led to being included on a compilation released worldwide by Tommy Boy Records. Listen on Spotify here (also on iTunes): http://open.spotify.com/user/1233238780/playlist/3FUSRljWv5KUG7lpRk2wLY
- Here are some of the first reviews of the record:
- My two PR campaigns with Ariel Publicity and Michael J Media have just begun and there will be many more reviews to come:)
- Since the record was completed I was offered my first two endorsement deals, one with Stonebridge Guitars International (http://www.stonebridgeguitars.com/) and L.R. Baggs Pickups (www.LRBaggs.com).
- Songs from the record have won the finals on OurStage.com three different times in 2012 (www.ourstage.com/jesseterry)! The song “Empty Seat on a Plane” also won Grand Prize in the We Are Listening Singer-Songwriter Awards (www.wearelistening.org).
- “Empty Seat On A Plane” will appear on the next season of PBS’ “Roadtrip Nation”. Our first film/tv placement for the new record! More placements to come.
- I was selected to perform at “Acoustic Long Island”, iTunes #1 Acoustic Podcast. Download the live performance for free here:
There are SOOO many hills and valleys in this business and because of your support you’re allowing me to experience so many more of the hills. I just wanted to show you the tangible difference you have made in my life. I still have a LONG way to go but you have given me an amazing start!
If you’re in the Northeast area on Weds, July 11th I sincerely hope you can join me for the official Record Release Show at Rockwood Music Hall in NYC (www.rockwoodmusichall.com)! Show is at 8pm sharp and there will be a celebration to follow somewhere nearby where we can clink some glasses and share some bear hugs. Free cover at Rockwood Stage One:)
if you’re not in the area on July 11th I’ll catch you on the road soon.
much love and huge thanks,
