ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Connecticut-born and Nashville-based, singer/songwriter Jesse Terry sounds, on his debut album The Runner, like he wishes he had been in Los Angeles in the early 1970s. The folk-rock arrangements on The Runner, with their slightly country flavor (courtesy of pedal steel player Dan Dugmore, who also provided his sound to some of the '70s So-Cal artists), along with Terry's earnest, throaty vocals, are very much evocative of the early Jackson Browne. (True, his fingerpicking ballads reveal that he also has James Taylor and Paul Simon albums in his collection, but Browne is the main inspiration here.) Terry has a degree in songwriting/performance from Berklee College of Music and is signed to a Nashville publisher as a staff songwriter, but his efforts on The Runner suggest that he has absorbed more an appreciation for the form of songwriting than a sense of the substance. It's the substance that fans of Browne and Taylor and Simon are attracted to, and that requires an individual lyrical voice and a rigorous approach to writing. - William Ruhlman
