Gomesongs Side A is a delight. From the first guitar lick to the last note, this project is well-polished and brought a smile to my face. - Denise Squier--Indie-Music.com


From the Great North in Ottawa, Terry Gomes comes down to the States to peer into our envelope of surprising pop-rock. His music is sincere rock ‘n’ roll with passionate asides and very excellent melodies that recall Paul Simon. I enjoy his upbeat guitar strums and light pop harmonies and how they intertwine with his song arrangements. Good stuff.

Bio

Canadian songwriter and guitarist Terry Gomes has just released his first commercially available compilation CD, GOMESONGS SIDE A.

For several years now, Terry has written, arranged and performed the music and lyrics on six self-produced demo CDs that he submitted to publishers. The songs were a mix of pop, folk, rock, and country. For many of these, he hired local artists, both male and female, to sing, but he himself played all instrumental parts except for percussion.

Now, Terry has gone back to this previous work and chosen songs that were accepted by American publishers, and songs that people have enjoyed. These songs have been professionally remixed and remastered for this, the first of two compilation CDs, GOMESONGS SIDE A.

In his lyrics, Terry likes to explore a variety of moods and topics. Many of the songs are humorous and upbeat; many are introspective and thoughtful. Some of them twist and turn in unexpected ways and often involve some sort of social commentary. Yet no matter how many different approaches he takes in his words and music, he always sounds like himself.

But what does that mean to you, the listener? On this compilation, GOMESONGS SIDE A, you will hear songs that might bring to mind the fluid guitar sounds of Dire Straits, the humor and fun of the Bare Naked Ladies, the catchy melodies of the Beatles, the thoughtful story songs of Paul Simon, the assertive female country of Shania Twain, and more.

If you like the songs of Terry Gomes, please keep in mind that SIDE B is in the works -- and after that, expect a CD of all new material, LOOSE ENDS.
