Fred Migliore, the host of public radio's nationally syndicated "FM Odyssey" program says, "Terry’s a great songwriter and great guitarist. He’s performed live on our program several times now and you will be hearing much more of his music on this show in the future. His songs have that sound like you used to hear back when we were growing up, like for me back home in New York. Nice stuff . . very nice. Live here in the studio . . sounds wonderful . . great music."

Terry Opens a Very Special Annie Humphrey Concert!

Saturday, June the 8th, 2002, Terry had the great honor to open for one of America's most important and talented new singer-songwriters, when Annie Humphrey made a surprise visit to the central Florida area, where she performed a very special concert for nationally syndicated broadcast on Public Radio's "FM Odyssey" program, hosted by Fred Migliore.

Performing a great new song called "Edge of America" and several "classics" from her debut "The Heron Smiled" album, Annie was, quite simply, brilliant. "She is an amazing artist and a wonderful human being" says Migliore, who has featured Ms. Humphrey on his program for the past two years. "She is probably the most popular performer we've ever had on the show and tonight's concert will only add to her growing reputation. She is remarkable" added Migliore.

Jackson Browne and David Crosby have also been impressed by Annie. A featured artist at Browne's "Verde Valley School Music Festival" in Sedona, AZ, she has made fans of fellow artists from Browne and Crosby to Bruce Cockburn and the Indigo Girls. And, thanks to her exposure on radio programs like "FM Odyssey" her message of hope and a better life for Native Americans is being heard loud and clear by intelligent listeners eager for music with lyrics of substance, truth, and deeper meaning for a change.

She is currently working on a new album and, if her new song "Edge of America" is any indication, Annie Humphrey is on the edge of a brilliant and very important music career. More importantly, her songs could help to change the world and it's definitely a world that needs to change!
