Jesse Terry at EFC/Edinburgh Folk Club
This is a first visit to Edinburgh Folk Club for Jesse Terry. In a period of American life considered the most divisive and tribalistic in modern memory, the notion of hopefulness may feel misplaced to some. For this New England (USA)-based singer/songwriter however, its a byproduct of his own life experience. I think I will always be innately hopeful, because Ive seen how much life can change, he says.  And Ive seen how much people can change, if they open up and allow themselves to do so.

Through and after a turbulent adolescence defined by runaway shelters and reform schools, the young Jesse encountered other people in increasingly desperate situations. He credits the health of his outlook today to the pain he shared with others all those years ago. Im only happy because I know how difficult life can be. And then I become even more grateful, because even though Ive travelled down some dark roads, Ive met many more that have had it so much worse, he says.  People whose lives were devoid of love or light, without any family or without families that cared.

When he awoke hooked up to machines in a hospital bed in the aftermath of a substance-fueled binge at 18 years old, Terry says he realized that happiness is a choice, and he vowed to begin making it daily.  At a certain point, he says, a vision of what happiness would look like took hold in his mind. I feel like Ive been on that path for a long time now, he says. There always was a tiny spark in the shadows, even at my lowest points. If youre working on it, the light gets brighter every day. Now Im in a place that I love, with a wife that I love, with family in my life that I love. But it took a long while.

Thus, Stargazer, Jesse's fourth album was forged in the crucible of his engagement with the chaotic, often confusing world of today. Drawing inspiration from a diverse pool of influences  from vintage Jeff Lynne-produced pop to the Roy Orbison of In Dreams to The Man Who-era Travis - Stargazer is an album of its time, imbued with an unconquerably sunny perspective for these curiously dark and turbulent days. Everything feels like its happening at the right time. he says.
