Musician

Terry Wollman

One of premier guitarist and arranger Terry Wollman’s early influences was the seminal soul band, Tower Of Power. After recovering from a hip injury a few years ago it was playfully suggested that he include “What Is Hip?” in his live show. Terry took the idea to heart and decided to put his own unique spin on this iconic song. The new single featuring Wollman’s signature acoustic guitar melodies, funky electric guitars, sizzling horn arrangement, and hitmaker band has everything needed for this high-energy summer hit! From his critically acclaimed debut album,“Bimini” to his 25-year retrospective “Silver Collection”, and the recent “Cassini’s Last Dance”, Wollman’s songs, arrangements, and production continue to reach straight into the heart of each listener
