to write a review


Jesse Terry is an incredible songwriter. He is like the perfect combination of Ryan Adams and James Taylor (sounds too good to be true, right?!). He has surrounded himself with a great band and every song on this record is top-notch. 'Let the Blue Skies Go to Your Head' is a personal favorite.


So good
I could listen to Jesse Terry's voice all day, every day. His songs are so soothing, I always listen to him to calm down and get a sense of peace.
