Teri Hitt : vocals, acoustic guitar
One of the main things 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.
I’ve been writing songs since I was 10. I have been graced with some great teachers along the way. I was lucky enough to study with vocal coach, Ron Anderson, for over 12 years and learned guitar from wizard, Karl Grossman
I’ve been a part of several Los Angeles bands over the years including Seventh World and Pet Buffalo. I’ve played live gigs around Los Angeles and Northern California and have created several long running singer/songwriter showcases to promote other songwriters.
I’m a lover of the space that a song can create outside the constraints of mundane reality. 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!
