Biography

Jonathan Terrell defines the next generation of Texas music. Pushing past the conventions of the singer/songwriter genre, the Longview-born lyricist possesses a style of writing that is sincere, introspective, and sometimes mischievous. Writing since a teen, Terrell has explored every corner of sound and style. Ten years and 250+ songs later, his sophomore release Trials & Stimulations nestles him right into the belly of his roots and reveals his strength as a performer as well as a songwriter.

Now making waves in his new hometown of Austin, local media and new fans alike are taking notice. The Austin American-Statesman recently declared his residency shows as “creating a buzz in the Texas music scene,” and his consecutive sold-out performances and ever-increasing audience have resulted in his sharing the stage with the likes of Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, Asleep at the Wheel, Ray Price, and The Bellamy Bros. In an Austin Chronicle review, Jim Caligiuri writes: “Taking his cues from the likes of Townes Van Zandt and Steve Earle, the twenty-something songwriter moans poetry set to country and folk settings that kick up dust with a flourish.”

Whether solo or accompanied by his revolving enlistment of Austin’s top players, Terrell’s live shows are a must. With a signature narrative nature, dusty vocals, and a knack for addictive melody, Terrell has the ability to hypnotize and electrify. (see full bio in press section)
