Watch this space for news of TeriJo's upcoming CD!
"Sounds From The Heart"
With a breathtaking voice often compared to Joan Baez and Judy Collins, TeriJo Stricker's songs describe both the beauty and the pain of life.

Her musical influences are varied: The Beatles, Judy Collins, Journey, REO Speedwagon, Linda Ronstadt, Anne Murray, Barbra Streisand, Barry Manilow...
More recently, Shania Twain, Wynona Judd, Sheryl Crowe and others.

"Music has always been a big part of my life.  Every memory I have has a song attached to it somehow.  My family and their friends were always getting together for jam sessions and sing-alongs.  It didn't matter whether you could sing well or not, or even whether you knew the words.  It was enough to be together and to enjoy it all."

"I picked up the guitar when I was fourteen and enjoyed it from the start.  My father taught me my first chords, and when he was tired of showing me a new one every five minutes he went down to the local music store and bought me a chord chart.  Years later, while in town on leave from the Navy, I went down to that same store and bought my first guitar - a six-string Alvarez.  While living in the Azores, I was the lead singer in a Portuguese Rock'n Roll band.  That's where I learned the finer points of harmony."

"My philosophy toward life is easily summed up.  Solve the problems you can, and make really bad jokes about what can't be changed.  Life is too short to mope.  I prefer to be cheerful.  If life throws me a curve, I bend.  I guess that explains why my blood pressure is so low!"

TeriJo gets down to business in the studio, checking mics & mic placements, setting recording levels and listening to the arrangements of her songs for the CD.
