I like all styles of music. Keith Taylor once said "Music is like a diamond - it has many facets". I think he was having one of his Zen moments. But it's true and anything melodic appeals to me.

If I have a particular favourite it is the singer/songwriter and the more miserable the song the happier I am! Some of my favourite musicians (in no particular order) are: Loudon Wainwright, Ron Sexsmith, Joni Mitchell, Tom Waits, Gretchen Peters, Ewen Carruthers and Pete Scott. To me lyrics are the key to a good song and all of these are superb lyricists as well as great songwriters.

Since attending Pete Scott's song writing workshops I have started to write and perform my own songs. As well as being a resident at Cramlington Folk club I also play in the duo Los Twangeros with Sean Taylor.

Club Quotes

“The comic of the Club who plays excellent guitar - he is a prolific songwriter and also sings songs by contemporary writers”

“Writes a lot of his own material, a polished performer who is very popular for his songs and jokes”

“Don't give up the day job”

“The joker in the pack - some great original material”

“A consummate guitarist, Terry has a wonderful touch. A versatile vocalist and great performer of contemporary songs and blue jokes! A fine songwriter in his own right”

“Shit-hot guitar, great voice, good range of cover songs and some original material destined to be classics, eg 'The Hard Way'. Heckler par excellence”

“One of the best all-rounders in the Club with a distinctive style of his own, he can be relied upon to produce a support spot of the highest standard to any guest singer”

“Probably the Club's favourite performer - I just wish he'd make a mistake”
