Terry Washington is an R&B/Jazz singer/songwriter, composer and music producer. Terry recently released his debut CD entitled "The Essence of Love."
But make no mistake about it; he is a seasoned performer whose music takes you on a soulful musical journey to love.
You could say his music is rhythm and blues colored with a tint of Jazz.
The songs on his CD puts you into those romantic moods you've experienced when listening to such greats as Luther Vandross, Will Downing, Jeffrey Osborne, and Maxwell.
As he effortlessly goes from baritone to tenor and falsetto he delivers a smooth singing
style with a voice that is texturally rich, soothing, and memorable.
You may even shed a tear or a few when listening to a couple of the more lyrically emotional songs he has written.
In fact, the lyrics contained in his music are simply breath-taking.
The compositions are impressive and mature, with rhythms and melodies that move you, make you take a look inside, relax, love and want to be loved.
All of the songs on the CD were written, arranged, produced and performed by Terry. This debut CD has been long awaited, greatly anticipated, but well worth it all.
Terry was born in New Orleans and grew up in the New Orleans metropolitan area. He now lives in the Atlanta area where he has performed for several years. His talent is so well thought of that organizations such as the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), Xerox Corporation (Minorities United in the Southern Region), and the Federal Aviation Administration and others have used him to provide musical selections in opening for speakers such as Dr. Dennis Kimbro, Dr. Mae Jemison and former Atlanta Mayors Bill Campbell, and Andrew Young and Congressman John Lewis.
