Teri Hitt : vocals, guitar
One of the main aspects that made me who I am is the music I heard growing up. The analog sound prevalent in the 70s and early 80s, the feeling of discovery in music, fed me and at times saved me from dark, shallow places.
The space the music is coming from, what many bands and songwriters were writing about, is deep and far reaching. The way the sound was recorded made those feelings come through. The songs that had “it” pointed me in the right direction early on. That feeling, like a beacon through a fog, calls me on. That’s why I write songs.
I love music that testifies and points to a direction out of the 3D box. I believe that is what music and art is for. Those mediums somehow pick up and transmit feelings that can reveal more than the obvious 3-D viewpoint about reality.
When you listen to really good music it sinks in and creates a space for you. Real present music changes you. It feeds you and gives you a platform to think about things beyond the physical world. That is what I hope to do with the songs I write.
Cause there’s something happening here…
We are in a time of a Revolution of Perception.
I once had a dream where I met myself in a parallel reality.
She said, “I’ve already created all the songs, I’m just sending them to you.”
Now that’s a dream!
