Jesse Terry announces UK tour

Jesse Terry

Making up for the last two years, Stonington, Connecticut based artist Jesse Terry is excited to announce his first international dates in support of his most recent album When We Wander (Wander Recordings), the first he wrote since becoming a parent. Shows start in Ireland in late September and will pair Terry up with 2021 Americana UK artist of the year Robert Vincent. Jesse will then move on to Scotland for shows with Elaine Lennon, the creator and host of The Homebird Sessions. Other UK dates will pair Jesse up with friend and past tour mate Emma Stevens.

Whatever magic potion the troubadours in Laurel Canyon were sipping on in 1971, Jesse Terry has managed to track it down and take a deep gulp. He plays around 150 shows a year, from Bonnaroo to the Philadelphia Folk Festival, the 30A Songwriters Festival to AmericanaFest. When the pandemic cancelled concerts and delayed the album’s release, he pivoted to performing online and found a strong new connection to his fans, who had helped fund his albums all along. “My musical tribe has always been there for me,” he says with gratitude.

Recorded in 2019 in Nashville with producer Neilson Hubbard (Mary Gauthier, Glen Phillips), the songs off the new album have really clicked with fans online. He and his band recorded When We Wander live in the studio, a first for his career.

“I wanted to try that Jason Isbell, Chris Stapleton, Neil Young approach to live recording, prioritizing emotion and raw performances over perfection. I loved that experience.” Recorded live, the album resonates especially with the intimacy and community spirit of the online shows.

And so, we circle back to appreciation and gratitude in the face of unexpected changes. “I don’t take a second of my career or my life for granted. I always continue to fight for it and to reach higher and strive to be a better artist and human being.” As he sings in “Pretty Good Hand” off the new album: “I don’t know if I’ll ever ride in no fancy limousine, but…I got somebody who understands, And that’s a pretty good hand.”
