"Terri's encouraging message of awareness, self-empowerment and kindness, is born out of a fierce commitment to taking the high road through her own challenges and personal battles, giving her music an undeniable authenticity and a tangible, joyful, healing power. The world is a better place for it." — Eliza Gilkyson
“Terri Hendrix holds her own among the poets who if you cut their words, they bleed." — Ray Wylie Hubbard
"I’ve known Terri Hendrix and her work a long time. She’s had to wade through a lot hell, not of her own making, and done so with true grace and courage. I think this collection of her music and words is a war cry, her gift with a vengeance to all of us, and especially those who face or have faced some of the same trials and adversities. Her themes are love, faith, and resilience. In these wicked days, I can’t think of anything we need more or a better person to offer them."— Terry Allen
Terri Hendrix is a pioneering independent Texas songwriter who spins sorrow into joy and wrings wisdom from the blues with a poetic grace and engaging melodic flair that has endeared her to three generations of loyal fans around the globe. A classically trained vocalist and accomplished multi-instrumentalist (guitar, mandolin, and harmonica) recently recognized by “Acoustic Guitar” Magazine as one of Texas’ 20 essential contemporary singer-songwriters, she is also one of its most prolific — having averaged nearly an album a year going all the way back to her 1996 debut, “Two Dollar Shoes.” To date, every one of her albums has been released on her own Wilory Records label, making Hendrix the rare artist who has owned all of her master recordings from day one. That autonomy has allowed her the freedom to dodge musical pigeonholes her entire career by weaving folk, pop, country, blues and swinging jazz into an eclectic style all her own — a playful mix that makes for a highly energetic and spiritually uplifting live show in any setting, from intimate listening rooms and theaters to outdoor festivals. Along the way, she’s also co-written a Grammy-winning instrumental (the Dixie Chicks’ “Lil’ Jack Slade”), and garnered such honors as a star on the South Texas Music Walk of Fame, the Art of Peace Award by Saint Mary’s University in San Antonio, the Distinguished Alumni Award at Hardin-Simmons University in Abilene, and a 2015 induction into the Women’s Hall of Fame in San Marcos, Texas. Now well into her third decade as a performing artist, Hendrix is currently in the midst of running a “sonic marathon” she calls “Project 5,” which by the time she finishes it will comprise four thematically-linked albums and a memoir. The first album, an intimate folk record called “Love You Strong,” was released in February 2016; it was followed in October by “The Slaughterhouse Sessions,” a politically charged collection of acoustic gospel blues. The next two albums — an electronica EP called “Who Is Ann?” and an eclectic singer-songwriter full-length called “Talk to a Human” — are both due out 2018. Last but not least will be the book, a deeply personal account of Hendrix’s lifelong battle with epilepsy and the path she’s braved to wellness. In addition to all of this (and teaching workshops, like her annual “Life’s a Song” retreat in the fall), Hendrix is also hard at work building a nonprofit creative center for the arts serving the greater San Marcos area and beyond. It’s called the OYOU, an acronym for “Own Your Own Universe” — words that this free-spirited, self-made woman has lived and thrived by her entire adult life.
