About

Terry Wetton

Singer Songwriter Entertainer Radio-Host Producer

 
Terry grew up in London and, as a teenager during the 60's, was part of the British music scene. As lead vocalist for the successful rock band Joker he played at all the major London venues, including The Marquee, The Music Machine, The Rock Garden and Ronnie Scott's. He moved to the United States in 1982 and continued performing and producing music in Southern California where he co-produced the Grammy nominated debut CD for jazz artist Tony Guerrero.
 
Since moving to North Carolina in 2003 he performs concerts at listening rooms in the Western North Carolina area, entertaining audiences with original songs that reflect his unique style and perspective. At his solo shows he supports his distinctive vocals with finger picked acoustic guitar and piano.
 
He released his successful, original CD "This Time It's Personal" in 2011 and many of the songs have become audience favorites, including "It Is What It Is" and "Learning To Fly". The follow up CD, the biographical "Sometimes I Miss England", was released in May 2014 and has proved to have universal appeal, with songs that it include "It Can't Be Done" and "Three Chords and A Dream". His inspirational album, "Simply Love ..", was released in January 2015, and showcases songs about the various incarnations of love, including romantic, Divine and Miracles! His latest CD release is "Give Thanks", a uniquely original Holiday album. It contains six original compositions as well as five songs that are probably unfamiliar to most listeners.
 
As a producer, he has produced many commercially available CD projects for many local artists including Carrie Morrison, Garry Segal, The Lonesome Road Band, Rob Curtis and Lynne Goldsmith. His weekly radio show on WTZQ 95.3 FM features local music and promotes the work of singer-songwriters in the Western North Carolina area.
