New Terence Martin CD & CD Release party
Good Dog Music is pleased to announce the release of the new CD by NY folk/Americana singer/songwriter and published poet Terence Martin, The Last Black and White TV. The 10 new original songs were written by Terence and his long time collaborator, Gregory Hicks, in the Santa Monica Mountains and the Eastern Sierras in California during 4 creative weeks in the summer of 2009. This is Terence’s 6th release, his most honest and musically accessible to date. The spirit of spontaneity and naturalness was taken into the studio, with tracks recorded live, highlighting the honesty and simplicity of the songs.
Produced by Terence and Dennis Hrbek, the CD features performances by Dan Bonis on archtop guitar, lap steel & dobro, Gordon Roehrer on bass and Clifford Carter on piano (“A Little Mercy”)
Terence’s previous CDs have all received national radio airplay and excellent reviews. His song “Familiar Mysteries” was the title track on the second Garland Appeal CD, the charity started in memory of Linda McCartney.
Terence has shared the stage with acts such as Rosanne Cash, Roger McGuinn, Dar Williams, and Richie Havens. He has performed throughout the Northeast.
The CD release party will be at the Turning Point Cafe in Piermont, NY on Saturday, Sept 25th at 6 PM. www.turningpointcafe.com
The CD is #3 this week on Roots Music Report’s NY: Roots Airplay Chart, #62 on the Americana chart and came in as #6 on the Folk DJ list for August and Terence was the #9 artist.

“Terence Martin’s latest CD, “The Last Black and White TV” might be his finest recording to date. Terence puts us in the passenger seat for a musical roadtrip to some very personal mileposts, each song crafted with an honesty and accessibility that is a hallmark of his songwriting skills.”
– Ron Olesko, Traditions WFDU –
“Terence Martin’s new album, The Last Black and White TV, shows why he’s a Cadillac among Chevy-quality singer songwriters. I’ve got ‘Halfway There’ stuck on repeat–it offers great, thought-provoking lyrics, a hook buried so deep you’ll never get it out, and a wealth of philosophical maturity. These are all qualities I expect, and routinely get, from Terence Martin.” – Jim Motavalli, WPKN –
