TERRI HENDRIX TO RELEASE NEW ALBUM, PILGRIM’S PROGRESS — ON SEPTEMBER 3RD — AS THE FINAL INSTALLMENT OF HER PROJECT 5 CYCLE
The Texas singer-songwriter and her producer Lloyd Maines “keep it country” on her first all-covers album, featuring songs by Kris Kristofferson, Dolly Parton, John Prine, and Jerry Jeff Walker — and a very special cameo by her first guitar teacher: Command Sergeant Major James Hendrix.
Recognized by Acoustic Guitar magazine as one of Texas’ 20 essential contemporary singer-songwriters, Terri Hendrix has earned fans worldwide for her singular fusion of folk, pop, country, blues, and jazz, delivered with poetic grace, melodic flair, and plenty of wit and wisdom. Along the way, she’s also co-written a Grammy-winning instrumental (the Chicks’ “Lil’ Jack Slade”), and garnered such honors as a star on the South Texas Music Walk of Fame, the Art of Peace Award by Saint Mary’s University in San Antonio, the Distinguished Alumni Award at Hardin-Simmons University in Abilene, and induction into the Women’s Hall of Fame in San Marcos, Texas. Her master recordings and archives are housed at the esteemed Wittliff Collections at Texas State University. Embodying Texas’ independent spirit, this classically trained vocalist and virtuoso guitar, mandolin, and harmonica player has done it entirely on her own, releasing every album since her 1996 debut on her Wilory Records label — often using a fan-financing model she developed years before crowdfunding arrived.
