Teri Untalan

Here Comes the Bright Light   Over There Jean-Pierre

Black & Blue

Teri's 2004 self titled debut CD is out now! A fearlessly intimate & arresting album. The largely solo acoustic performance brings you into the personal journey of this songwriter. Her soulful voice brings immediate emotional impact to every song delivered. Teri starts with country/gospel vocal a capella piece "Faith" then draws you inside the forgiving "Accidents Will Happen". She concludes the CD with super lushious beats driven remix of love song "Eternally, Perpetually". The hybrid of sounds has drawn comparisons to many iconic vocalists from Nina Simone & Bjork to Norah Jones & Ani Difranco to Edith Piaf & Bebel Gilberto. This album features production and a remix by Jamie Lemoine of electronica group Westside Chemical, Stephen Smith on bass for 5 tracks and Rich McCulley on dobro for "The Wedding of Heidi & Jason" - a song written for childhood friend and Portland punk rock vocal legend Heidi Hellbender. Oh, and did we mention she plays tasty viola & guitar as well? Listen for yourself! Listen / Buy the album at CD Baby
