From the first time he heard Bill Haley's "Rock Around The Clock" he wanted to be a guitar player and indeed, a vagabond lifestyle was set in motion in pursuit of that dream. Carpenter, farm and ranch hand, truck driver, factory worker, short-order cook, bartender, booking agent, single parent and all of this while gathering the songs and musical skills that make him the sharp-eyed writer and skilled musician that he is today.

Terry Lee has lived and traveled extensively in North America and, since 1993, in Europe as well. Still with strong ties to Seattle since 1984, he currently resides with his wife near Paris, France. His first appearances on records were on 1987's - "Lowlife" compilation from Seattle's Ironwood Studios and the following year with the song "Dead Is Dead" on Sub Pop 200.

His earliest musical influences would include Reverand Gary Davis, Tampa Red, Doc Watson, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, , Beatles, Stones, CCR, Johnny Cash, Hank Williams, Motown, Chess & Stax records. Latter would come the Clash, Sonic Youth, X, John Fahey, Django Reinhardt, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Seattle and many, many "traditional" musics.

Current faves would include Greg Brown, Tinariwen, Radiohead, Peter Case, Thurston Moore and Vic Chesnutt.
