Reviewers have commented favorably on Terry’s technical ability, musical interpretation and sense of rhythm. For instance, Robert Kinsler of the Orange County Register wrote that Terry’s guitar playing is able to “fuse artistic expression and virtuoso musicianship with every note played.” Leslie Connors from Jazztimes.com noted that Terry’s “mastery of the guitar displays an icy self-confidence that doesn’t need showing off.”

Terry is a principle member, producer and song writer of “Steve Copeland and Raging Sun.” He performs regularly in an acoustic blues duo with the south bay shredder Pat “the Colonel” Hennessy and with the Chris Banta jazz trio throughout the greater Los Angeles area.
