Album Notes
Award-winning Boston contemporary folk singer/songwriter Terry Kitchen's music blurs the line between the personal and the political, just like real life does. His new CD Next Time We Meet contains both dagger-sharp insights and heartfelt reassurances, often within the same song, and always set to melodies that let the listener feel each swoop and soar of emotion.

Next Time We Meet also celebrates life and love, especially that of Terry's longtime friend and bandmate Bill Kuhlman, who passed away from cancer in 2018. (The cover photo shows the 2 of them at an early band gig, Terry in red, Bill in blue.) The title song, while set to a lilting folk/rock groove, is a sustained howl at the human condition: that we just aren't programmed to accept that we only get one chance at life. Luckily, within each life we get countless opportunities to live, love and grow.

The people and stories on Next Time We Meet are breathed to life by Kitchen's nuanced, intimate voice and distinctive, chiming guitar. Each song is a unique soundscape, fleshed out by rich harmony vocals (by Mara Levine, Amy Malkoff and Deede Bergeron) and spare instrumental touches (from Bob Harris's fluid mandolin and Jackie Damsky's mournful fiddle to Roger William's plaintive Dobro and Kitchen's own Dylan-esque harmonica). The songs range from gently driving bluegrass ("Melanie," "How Many Horses") to classic protest folk ("Party on the Roof," "White Lung") to midnight confessional ("The Times We Almost Kissed") to edgy, ironic pop ("Empty Mansion"). Closing the album is a stellar, open-tuned arrangement of "Norwegian Wood," also a nod to Kitchen's deep musical history with his childhood friend.

Called "one of New England's best songwriters" by The Boston Globe, Terry Kitchen has been performing on New England and national folk stages since the 1990s. His songs have won the USA and Mid-Atlantic song contests, been runner-up in the John Lennon song contest and have appeared in numerous films. Next Time We Meet, Kitchen's 12th solo album, follows 2019's Rubies in the Dust, which spent 2 months on the national Folk-DJ airplay chart, 2017's The Quiet Places (with the #8 Folk-DJ-charting "Enjoy It While It Lasts") and 2015's The Post-American Century (#19 on Folk-DJ). His music-themed novel Next Big Thing was published in 2013.
