TERI GARRISON is a unique and expressive singer who has performed with everyone from WILLIE DIXON to WILLIE NELSON. Years as a background singer have given way to a vibrant performing and recording career both solo and in front of her own band. Musicians in her live and studio bands have included DAVID LINDLEY, JEFF BAXTER, MICKEY RAPHAEL, ROCK DEDRICK, GUY FORSYTH, JOHNNY GIMBEL, RUSS KUNKEL, ARNO LUCAS and ROBBEN FORD.

Having written over 300 songs, TERI was honored when her song, “THE EYES” won  at Nashville’s “EMBASSY MUSIC SONGWRITER’S CONTEST”. Garrison will be featured in the TV pilot of the same event filmed at the Gaylord Opryland.

TERI is a long time resident of Maui, Hawaii where she performs whenever she’s not on the road touring. She also had the house band for NBC’s REAL PEOPLE. TERI has sung  or opened for: HOWIE MANDELL, LEON RUSSELL, LEO KOTTKE, PETER ROWAN, THE FABULOUS THUNDERBIRDS,and BONNIE RAITT among others and of course WILLIE NELSON, who she singles out as a great inspiration, saying, “He is one artist who not only has a heart of gold, but lives by it too.” She is here on the mainland to promote her new CD, “THE EYES”.

You can purchase “ONLY LOVE” – TERI’S studio collaboration with DAVID LINDLEY, or “THE EYES” exclusively by emailing tygmusic@gmail.com.  Be watching for other links soon.

But the real story here is her music. Belying her fragile, chiseled, blue-eyed beauty, TERI’s voice is rich and powerful; a blues instrument of Joplinesque power, yet capable of bringing tears to an audience with the softest of ballads. Add an uncanny knack for writing songs that explore not only herself, but her world and her faith and you have a compelling performer of the highest order.

But these are just words, find the music, then listen, then you’ll know.
