“Barber has a rippling tone of warm silver, both exciting and tenderly moving, that is unusually satisfying for this vocal range...”
You may have heard his vocals on the Buddah-bar chill out series, on Adiemus Vocalise (EMI), or perhaps seen him on the opera stage? After completing a World Tour with three-time Grammy Award Winning, Chanticleer, Terry has been a soloist at Carnegie Hall, The Metropolitan Opera, Avery Fisher Hall, Alice Tully Hall, New York City Opera, Queen Elizabeth Hall... Terry has recorded solo vocals for most of the major labels and performed at many of the World's top venues. This benefit cd is his first SOLO release.
On 5/12/06 my maternal Grandfather, Michael T. Russo, died of cancer. Seven months later, on the reverse date, 12/05/06, my mother was taken by the same disease. She was a young woman who took the best care of herself. They both set the bar high for the entire family as examples of strong, successful leaders.
It was my mother's dying wish for me to have my voice heard. It was she that influenced me to start private voice lessons at the age of seven. This album, I have put together of work that made her proud of me. "Do you hear that?" she would say as she played my music for everyone, promoting me even from her hospital bed. I hope as people buy and hear this record, they will be aware of you and what you did to get me to this place. I love and miss you, Michele Russo Jillson
IT IS TIME for me to do something to give back and make a change for the future.
Proceeds from this album, "SONGS SHE LOVED", will go to cancer research. I hope that someday people like my young mother can be saved from this horrible disease that has reached epidemic proportions.
