According to her website, Teri is a woman whose music will make you dance and your heart sing. But I consider that an understatement!

On a recent visit to the sunny beaches of Fort Lauderdale, I met fate head-on and stumbled upon the glowing face of Teri Catlin. She radiated buckets of energy and such a warm glow that by the time we were done with our first conversation, I considered her a friend of mine.

Then I heard her CD! ---POWERFUL stuff is all I can say!

Actually, I have a lot more to say than that. Teri’s mix of soul, blues, rock-n-roll & strong songwriting presents itself as one of the more original releases I’ve heard in quite a while. From the smooth sounds of tracks like, “Alive” and “Baby”, which offer a comfortable mix between Joan Armatrading , Joni Mitchell and the Goddess, Ms. Bonnie Raitt.

But, with full force, Teri kicks out the walls of that category box and presents a whole different style- one that reeks of blues & soul, and simply kicks ass! Tracks like “Cry”, “Get Off” , & “Who I Am” (among others), cry out… “HEY! PLAY ME LOUD & OFTEN!”

Its one thing to come across a good cd. It’s another to have a high quality cd match up evenly with a high quality human being. Teri Catlin’s self titled debut is that release!
