“I have been a fan of Jesse Terry since the first time I heard him. He's a humble - and humbling - talent.”
- Tony Arata - singer/songwriter & 2012 Inductee of Songwriters Hall of Fame
"Jesse Terry was a highlight of our festival. As headliner, he won over crowds at the Hideaway Cafe. As a house concert performer, he inspired several new hosts and thrilled the audiences that came to see him. In a business that often shows our flaws, Jesse brings nothing but strength to the stage... songs, voice, personality, and musicianship."
- Fran Snyder, founder of Listening Room Festival and ConcertsInYourHome.com
