"**** 4 Stars!"

Following in the footsteps of successes like Fiona Apple and Norah Jones, Teri Untalan is the singer, songwriter, and violist to possibly make the next big jump to notariety.... There is definitely an emotional and intense quality in Untalan's voice and songs that takes the listener on the journey with her. - Nelson, AArising.com

"KPOO 89.5FM, San Francisco"

..beautiful, wonderful (songs)... songstress extraordinaire... a special talent! - Donald Lacy, KPOO Radio 89.5FM

"KSW News"

her voice is possessed of an aching and textured intensity; she seems to embrace and revel in each note, as in the haunting and velvety 'accidents will happen'... when the lyric resolves and releases at the line 'I forgive you', it feels like the musical embodiment of mercy... her listeners are sure to be thankful... for this remarkable debut. - KearnyStreet.org

"SF Bay Times"

...her magnificent voice completely at her imaginative control … combines crystalline clarity with formidable … evocative power, providing sensual surprises with every note … and if that's not enough, she also plays a very mean viola! - Tom Kelly, San Francisco Bay Times

"George Winston"

"...it's a wonderful record...fantastic..." - Windham Recording Artist

"Asian Week"

"...she sings with ease, her soulful, dynamic voice reminiscent of Ani Difranco and Norah Jones."

Singer/Songwriter/Violist/Guitarist: Teri Untalan has gained quick recognition with her 2004 debut self-titled CD as a captivating performer. She return’s to her native Portland from San Francisco where she worked the stages for over a dozen years performing or recording with such notables as Buckethead (formerly of Guns n’ Roses, Praxis & Giant Robot), Westside Chemical (Stray Records), Katrina Wreede (formerly of Turtle Island String Quartet), Miko (former Prince guitarist), and several other up & coming songwriters from all over the West Coast.

She’s been featured in the Portland’s Asian Reporter, Bay Area's Asian Week newspaper, KRON Channel 4’s Pacific Fusion TV Magazine (SF), the 2004 San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival, KBOO (PDX), KPOO (SF), KPFA (Berkeley), and the 2005 Asian American Music Conference Artist Showcase. Having worked with non-profit Asian American arts organizations in the Bay Area, she sought out the opportunity to continue supporting arts, education and women’s communities in Portland. Upon return to Portland she immediately got involved with local non-profits, Ethos Music Center, Rock'n'Roll Camp for Girls (volunteer) and Ladies Rock Camp (vocal instructor and planning committee volunteer). Most recently she appeared as a featured singer in Renee S. Mitchell’s Tangoing with Tornadoes, a play/choreopoem revolving around the theme of domestic violence. Her 2004 CD is now being sold online at CDBABY.com and iTunes. She gigs regularly and is currently in pre-production for her next CD.
