Album Notes
"Terry Kitchen's songs are portraits of ordinary people and emotions, captured with extraordinary compassion, honesty and humor. A talented writer."
Richard Middleton, Victory Review

"Terry is a perceptive songwriter unafraid to tackle sometimes difficult subject matter."
Mike Regenstreif, Sing Out!

"One of New England's finest songwriters"
Stephen Ide, Dirty Linen

"Terry Kitchen picks up where Elvis Costello and Tom Waits merge and leave off."
Vance Gilbert

"Contemporary folksinger and award-winning songwriter Terry Kitchen is a performing artist who iss as much a storyteller as a musician. He's been writing songs since gradeschool as a way of making sense of himself and the world around him.

1997s blanket, described as "13 songs about family, unexpected love, lightning and flying, was heard on over 100 folk radio programs worldwide and voted #21 best CD of that year by Folk Digest. Its follow-up, 1999s blues for cain & abel, reached #15 on the national Folk DJ chart and includes Kitchen's bluesy rendition of the Beatles' "Let It Be"

Born in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, Kitchen grew up on Easton, PA's College Hill (home of Lafayette) surrounded by the music and spirit of the 1960s. As a bored teenager in the 70s, Terry roamed the small town streets of Findlay, Ohio (the setting for Kitchen 1995 I Own This Town) before escaping to Los Angeles for college (Occidental) and music school (GIT). He moved to Boston and fronted the original pop/rock band LOOSE TIES in the mid 80s (whose video was played on MTV exactly once) before settling on the intimacy of acoustic music as the most natural setting for his songs.

For the past ten years Terry has performed on the New England and national coffeehouse and folk festival circuits (including Club Passim in Cambridge, Cafe Lena and Fast Folk in New York, Godfrey Daniels in Pennsylvania, and the Bluebird in Nashville, and the Falcon Ridge, Telluride and Napa folk festivals) and shared the stage with such artists as John Gorka, Cheryl Wheeler, Dan Bern, Vance Gilbert, the Nields, Susan Werner and Kristina Olsen. He was a finalist in the 1992 Falcon Ridge songwriter showcase (and a featured performer ever since) and a 94 Telluride Troubadour. He is the Grand Prize Winner of the 2000 Mid-Atlantic Song Contest, First Prize Winner of the 2000 USA Songwriting Competition, and a Runner Up in the 2000 John Lennon Songwriting Contest.

In addition to his songwriting Kitchen has written 2 plays, a children's novel, and collection of autobigraphical stories. He's worked as a summer camp counselor, ice cream fountain engineer and bicycle messenger, has a brief but distinguished FBI record for anti-nuclear protests, and has finished last in a Boston Marathon.

Kitchen is a veteran of the Boston "Songos" writers group and the Kerrville songwriting school, and he leads songwriting workshops and songswaps in conjunction with performances. His songs "Stonecutter," a faithful retelling of the Japanese folktale, and "Three If By Air," about a Boston inventor who in 1754 made his own wings and flew, have become staples of New England folk radio, and his "Christmas Is Homeless" was recorded by Barabara Kessler on the 12 Steps of Christmas CD.
