At Home with The House of Songs: Jonathan Terrell
Today, At Home with The House of Songs features Jonathan Terrell. Jonathan has been a prolific cowriter with our Austin Player-2-Player program, guest artists-in-residence, was a part of our Songwriter Summit in 2019, and played our showcases at AmericanaFest.
Earlier this month, Jonathan self-released "Love Can Find You Anywhere" EP, available for streaming and download in hopes that love is finding you wherever you are in this weird world right now. We encourage you to follow and support Jonathan, and all of our fellow musicians, in this uncertain time by making donations to artists and/or purchasing music and merchandise.
Jonathan Terrell is a new breed of country, pulling inspiration from dreamscapes and in depth stories from the gorgeous and gritty corners of Americana. He received international praise for his 2008 full length solo debut, “Trials and Stimulations”, and began work on his next record until shelving the project in 2011 to front and tour with the rock’n’roll band, Not In The Face.
Terrell returned to his second album of songs and shaped them into an enchanting collection of yearning and bravado, heartbreak and redemption. He released “Past the Lights of Town” four years later, in 2015 on Candy Bang Records. He followed the release of “Past the Lights of Town” with residencies in NYC, DC and Philadelphia, a UK tour and a sold out French Tour. Jonathan is currently touring in the U.S. and finishing a new full length record set to release 2020.

On his notable sophomore LP, Past the Lights of Town, Terrell hits sparse and direct, his voice rusted with a hard twang in sharp ballads that twist exceptional lines like barbed wire- Austin Chronicle
