Terry Holder is an award winning singer-songwriter with the undeniable ability to captivate and connect with her listeners through her words and music. Gifted with a voice to break your heart, her soulful songs will draw you in. With passion, enthusiasm and hard work her songs open hearts everywhere she goes.
Terry won the 2013 Wildflower Festival Performing Songwriter contest in Richardson, Texas and has been selected four times, including 2013, as a Kerrville New Folk Finalist at the prestigious Kerrville Folk Festival.
She does not believe in placing limits on herself. Until 1999, her full time job was “stay at home mom.” Her life changed when the youngest of her 3 daughters moved away, a transition that coincided with the passing of her mother. Depression settled in. Seeking solace she reached for her guitar and began shifting her pain into writing music.
She literately woke up one morning and began writing music. The first song she wrote became the title track for her 2001 debut CD “Am I Here Is This Me,” which was originally intended only as a keepsake for her daughters. Instead, the album started garnering sales and critical acclaim. A second CD called “Colored Rooms” followed.
On her third studio CD, “Ticket To The Moment,” Terry continued to explore her passions through her heartfelt and gutsy songs. The CD delivers her emotionally driven songs around lyrics that take you on a journey with flashes of abandon, heartbreak, love, social and self-awareness. Terry says, “If I can touch one person with a song, then I feel that I’ve accomplished something great in my life.”
Terry’s just completed 4th CD, “Flowers at Midnight,” brings more engaging songs. We’re excited as this will be Terry’s first concert where the new CD is available. A few preview tracks are at https://soundcloud.com/terry-holder.
Terry’s live performances are a treat – beautiful vocals and guitar with backing vocals and fine guitar playing from her husband Jerry. Listen to Terry’s music and you’ll become a fan.
