1953 - San Antonio, Texas : Born into an army family
Terry Lee attended 10 schools in 10 different cities. After finishing
high school in Yakima, Washington he set out for Seattle, then
California and continued from there to travel in the States all the
while learning to play guitar and write songs. TLH has worked as a
carpenter, truck driver, farm and ranch hand, cook, laborer, bar
tender, booking agent and various other occupations to support himself,
his daughter (as a single parent) and his music.
From the first time he heard Bill Haley's "Rock Around The Clock" he
wanted to be a guitar player and indeed, bought his first Stella when
he was 14. Terry Lee has lived and traveled extensively in America and,
since 1993 in Europe as well. His first appearance on record was on
1987's "Lowlife" compilation from Ironwood Studios.
Now, there are 13 Cd's released in Europe, all of them (except the last
two ) on German recording labels. The first was in 1993 with "Oh What A
World" on Normal Records . The next 8 CDs (Frontier Model, The
Wilderness Years, Tornado Alley, Leaving West, Old Hand, Blue Room,
Frozen, Tender Loving Hell) were with Glitterhouse Records.
The next 3 releases were with Blue Rose Records. Celebration What For
in 2004 and one self-titled release called Hardpan along with one live
CD/DVD - Hardpan Live –
which featured American songwriters Chris Burroughs, Joseph Parsons
Todd Thibaud and Terry Lee Hale. In 2007 he released “Shotgun
Pillowcase” on the Spanish Borderdreams label. And now in 2011 there is
"Proof Of A Promise", which he is bringing to our attention.
Terry Lee lives just outside Paris, France with his wife Katy.
I'm a strong supporter and enjoy-er of independent music &
For quite a while, my house is a place for wandering troubadours to
stay and relax and explore my hometown Berlin and have a good talk and a cold beer.
I'm doing house-concerts just for the fun of it and also to
introduce my befriended musicians to people i know good enough to believe they will enjoy this music as much as i do.
Usually there is a house-concert every month (sometimes 2 a month) in my
basement which can hold up to 30 people comfortably.
ALL proceeds of the evening are going to the artist !
