Terri Hendrix with Lloyd Maines
Boondocks Lounge, 3306 N. 1st Ave, Tucson
Terri Hendrix is an award-winning Texas songwriter who spins sorrow into joy and wrings wisdom from the blues with a poetic grace and uplifting melodic flair that has endeared her to three generations of loyal fans across the country and around the globe. As the San Antonio Express-News observed in a review of her latest album, Cry Till You Laugh, “Part of the beauty of Terri Hendrix’s music is she’s among the best at recognizing, writing about and celebrating resilience and common ground, the things we can all cry, and laugh, about.” The classically trained vocalist and deft multi-instrumentalist (guitar, mandolin and harmonica) has released more than a dozen albums on her own Wilory Records label, dodging musical pigeonholes her entire career by weaving folk, pop, country, blues and swinging jazz into an eclectic style all her own. That playful mix of styles, buoyed by her energetic stage presence and the accompaniment of legendary producer/guitarist Lloyd Maines, makes for a highly energetic and spiritually uplifting live show in any setting, from intimate listening rooms and theaters to festival stages. In addition to touring and recording new music, Hendrix recently wrote and published her first book, called Cry Till You Laugh — The Part That Ain’t Art, containing song lyrics and essays on life, health, and going your own way in the music business. She is currently hard at work on launching a nonprofit community arts center in central Texas called the OYOU (“Own Your Own Universe”), which will promote the healing and therapeutic qualities of art and music for those in need. And after all, Music is Medicine!
