and great guitarist. Hes 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."

He is currently in the home studio recording several new songs and a few old ones with the desire to finally put out a "rockin' folk and blues" album and bring about world peace . . as always.

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
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.
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
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!
