Terri England

Multi-instrumentalist, composer and arranger, Terri England, produces original music characterized by a unique combination of cool Brazilian and Latin rhythms, jazz highlights and classical orchestral arrangements, all blended with a 'secret sauce' that's all her own. A native of South Texas, England was born to a family of musicians, artists, and entrepreneurs. At six years of age she took an interest in playing guitar that would never wane, while also receiving extensive classical training on piano and cello. During formal education her immersion in both art and music proved to be valuable experiences strongly influencing her later development as an independent artist. In particular, her orchestral activities would teach her to create dynamic, musical arrangements that take the listener on a stimulating sonic journey.

England's debut CD, TONES OF THE TROPiCS, is availale now for $15.00 at her website: TERRIENGLAND.COM. The album is a mix of high energy tunes, including Vera’s Cruise, Dance of the Fireflies and the title cut, Tones of the Tropics, contrasted by mellower tracks like Spring, Lil’ Ray of Bossa and Moonlit Mood. TONES OF THE TROPiCS is a‘feel good’ collection of ten instrumental tunes that both energize and soothe the listener. England’s melodies are backed by samba, bossa nova and batucada rhythms from Brazil and booty-shakin’ Latin beats

When the guitar makes its appearance it is with the melodic line in track 2, “Spring”. The guitar is subtle, important, and understated - and the hollow tone of the nylon string guitar provides character to the apt guitar technique
