For me, Terry was the discovery of this year's Greenbelt, an American singer/songwriter with an achingly expressive voice and a spine-tingling way with bittersweet acoustic ballads. The opener here, "Lines On My Finger", is a song about a broken relationship crammed full of poignant images of loss; "Not This One" is based on that well known story about the man throwing starfish back into the sea; while "Jean" tells the story of Terrys grandmother and her romance during the time of the great Depression. The final track, "If I Needed You", is an old Townes Van Zandt song with Terry's dad and sister helping out on vocals. One of the most delicious new singing talents for years, this should be investigated by all those looking for song communicators of the finest quality.
