Terry Hanson gets his musical inspiration from a
background that is as diverse as the artist himself. Growing up in
Minneapolis, Minnesota Terry was immersed in the sounds of country
music radio at a time when legends were being born. The voices of
Merle Haggard, Buck Ownes, Waylon Jennings, Tammy Wynette and George
Jones all played a large part influencing Terry as a songwriter and
an outstanding performer. Additionally, it was the sound of his
Mom’s Piano and Accordion playing that have been responsible for
shaping him into the artist he is today.
Having moved to Southern California in the late 80’s Terry has been
involved in the music, film and television industries as a
songwriter, editor, videographer, producer and documentary
filmmaker. Terry’s original songs have been heard in a variety of
outdoor adventure films including a major credit the motion picture
“Crimson Tide”. Terry has performed and toured over 20 countries
around the world including Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Turkey, Italy,
Spain and Panama with the Department of Defense and has opened for
major acts such as Sheryl Crow.
Terry has most recently returned from a short stint in Australia and
now resides in Los Angeles where you will find him working on his
debut CD and performing with his band The Westerners.
