Terry's New CD, SHINE ON!
"It’s hard to say what I love most about Terry Garthwaite, but her new CD SHINE ON has it all! Sometimes her voice is raucous, rockin’, get down, get up and dance. Sometimes it’s earthy soul and full of the blues. Then it becomes the tenderest of lullabies or the sweetest of prayers. Terry loves the taste of words in her mouth – the clicking and clacking of the train on the Joy of Cooking hit “Ticket to Chicago,” the tongue twisting, crazy rhythmic play of “Pippinipity.” And her anthems, like “Legacy,” “Shine On,” and “Lifted Up” make you want to join a chorus, or join your friends, to sing the world to health. We’ve waited 15 years for another Terry Garthwaite recording, and SHINE ON satisfies and exceeds all expectations!"
