A true musical journeyman, singer-songwriter Jesse Terry has made it his mission to share his love of music fully and completely, “I’ve always had the desire to spread peace and unity through my music,” says Jesse. “This gives me a tangible purpose, even when life doesn’t seem to make much sense.”
That ability to create a connection, to bare his soul and express his emotions through his songs, has been the defining thread in a career that began in 2010 and spawned five albums (The Runner, Stay Here With Me, Empty Seat on a Plane, and his latest pair, Stargazer and Natural) as well as an EP (The Calm and the Storm). It’s evolved and expanded ever since, thanks to a tour schedule that’s found him playing over 1,000 shows in the past eight years and taken him across the country and to points well beyond – the UK, Germany, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Greenland and New Zealand included. It’s given him a fresh perspective on the world and additional insights into its common humanity, sentiments and a sensibility that continues to impact his music.
Shawna Caspi performs solo, but there’s a whole band under her fingertips. A mighty singer, a story sculptor, and a truth teller, she has toured across Canada and the USA and believes in poetry and the power of one person and one instrument, accompanying herself with a remarkable lyrical fingerpicking guitar style. Shawna loves the landscapes of her travels and while weaving them into her songs, she has also been portraying them on canvases, painting one-of-a-kind works of art inspired by the rich scenery she sees on tour.
