Hey my friends and musical family!

I’m down in Nashville recording my fourth full-length album, which will be produced by Josh Kaler (Dar Williams, Matthew Perryman Jones) and will feature string arrangements by Danny Mitchell (Miranda Lambert, Anderson East). I think this new batch of songs is my best yet, inspired by heroes like George Harrison, ELO, Tom Petty, Ryan Adams, Jason Isbell and of course, The Beatles.

As a gift, anyone who pledges towards the ‘Stargazer’ album will receive an instant download of "Natural,” an unreleased record that I recorded in December of 2016, featuring harmony vocals by Dar Williams, Kim Richey, Sarah Darling, Liz Longley, Cary Ann Hearst (of Shovels and Rope), Annie Clements and Erin Rae. The ’Natural’ album is exclusively available through this PledgeMusic campaign.

Take a look at my launch video above, find your favorite combination of exclusives and Pledge to pre-order! As a Pledger, you’ll also gain an ’AccessPass’ to exclusive behind the scenes content from the studio, the road and more.

I’ve put together an awesome list of exclusives for you to choose from: Everything from Signed CD’s & Vinyl Records, to a Custom-Written Song, to ‘Stargazer’ T-Shirts, to Jess Terry Framed Prints, to House Concerts:) Every Pledge, large or small makes a huge difference and gets us closer to bringing this music into the world. Let’s make this happen together!

This new album ‘Stargazer’ is like nothing I’ve ever done before & I’m so excited to share it with all of you. This is the first time I’ll be working with a string arranger (the brilliant Danny Mitchell) & recording a full string section on an album. The strings will be a huge part of this project & we’ll be working with some of the finest players in all of Nashville. My producer Josh Kaler has produced and toured with an amazing list of folks, including Dar Williams, Butch Walker and Matthew Perryman Jones. I know he’s the perfect person to steer the ship for me.

I can’t thank you enough for all of your incredible support over the years. I hope you’ll join me in this release, help me spread the word & come along for the ride:)

With much love & gratitude,

Jesse

You name the song (within reason)! I will record a high quality guitar/vocal of the song and it will be covered in a unique way.

A professional Guitar/Vocal is included with both of these exclusives, recorded, mixed and mastered in a top notch recording studio. Additional instruments and vocalists (besides my acoustic guitar and vocal), extra studio time etc is not included in the price, but almost anything can be added to the production for an additional cost… Anything from an added piano player to a full band to a string section recorded in Nashville, TN. The sky is the limit there and If you want to add anything extra to the project, I’ll take care of hiring the additional players, engineers, vocalists etc.

Searching for the perfect gift for someone you love? Trust me, nothing moves a human being more than a song written especially for them! It might be more powerful than diamonds. You and I will be in touch over the phone, skype and email to discuss the song and the occasion. I’ll write a full song for you (lyrics, chords and melody). I’ll send you a rough recording when my first draft is done, you can give me your feedback and then we will finalize it together.

I’ve done this for quite a few folks over the years and I’d love to send you over some examples of past custom songs I’ve done:) Drop me an email and I’d be happy to send over some examples to you: terry.jesse@gmail.com

A professional Guitar/Vocal recording is included with this exclusive. See below for full description.

Let’s Write a Song Together! Let’s co-write an epic song together and get you a professional recording of our baby. If you are within a 6 hour drive from Mystic, CT, then there is no extra charge. Further than that, let’s chat! It’s definitely doable – will just need my travel and lodging expenses covered. Our co-writing date must fit within my tour schedule, but I’m a road warrior and it shouldn’t be hard to find a date to get together. We also have the option of co-writing over Skype and/or email from anywhere in the world. Feel free to drop me a line at terry.jesse@gmail.com with any questions. I’m happy to work together to make this happen and keep costs at a minimum!

Note:
Songs created from these exclusives will be considered equal 50/50 co-writes.

You never know what great things can come from a song, and you’ll be an equal co-writer on this one, whether it’s a custom-written song or a co-write:)

You and your date will be welcomed to our beloved home of Mystic, CT (of ‘Mystic Pizza’ fame) for a special visit. Myself and my lovely wife Jess will show you around the area and give you the royal treatment:)

We’ll the start the day with brunch at Noah’s, our favorite brunch spot in the charming village of Stonington Borough, CT. Depending on the season and weather, you’ll have your choice of different excursions for the afternoon. If the weather is nice we can rent kayaks on the Mystic River and explore downtown Mystic (or Mystic Village) together. We can also go on a Mystic River Cruise if you prefer that over kayaking. Your choice:) You’ll also have the option of visiting the historic Mystic Seaport Museum. If you’re an outdoors type we’ll take you on one of our favorite hikes along the New England coastline (our pup Jackson can come as well if you’d like for him to join!). We’d pack a light picnic for the hike and find a perfect spot to relax and catch up with you. You’ll also have the option of visiting the famous Mystic Aquarium with us during the afternoon. SO many awesome excursions to choose from in the area. After our afternoon excursion we will break shortly to wash up and get ready for our dinner date together. We will take you to our favorite restaurant in town, the award-winning S&P Oyster Company in Mystic, CT. It’s a magical place right on the Mystic River with water views inside and out and some of the best food in the world! Dinner for two and one bottle of wine/champagne will be included with the meal, along with the best dessert ever.

We can work together to coordinate what’s best for everyone schedule wise. Feel free to send an email to terry.jesse@gmail.com with any questions. You’ll also get signed CD’s, T-shirts, Signed Lithographs and other special surprises when you visit.

Lodging is not included in this exclusive, but we’re happy to recommend some wonderful places in the area. This exclusive is for one day with the Terry’s. We hope that you’ll stay in Mystic Country for the whole weekend and we’ll be happy to give you recommendations for other activities, restaurants and places you can visit while you’re in the area. It’s a gorgeous place to explore in all four seasons.
