Terrick Lee spent five years in Nashville honing his country music chops, writing music and playing at, “all the honky-tonks on lower Broadway,” as well as the Grand Ole Opry. He had publishing and management deals as well, but he and his wife missed the Eastern Shore, so at the end of 2005 they packed up and moved back east, settling down outside of Worton, (they are both originally from Queen Anne’s county). He hasn’t given up the music he’s been playing since middle school, but with a family to support, he has a regular paying day gig, and plays in the country/rock band, Twenty One Horses, evenings and weekends.
The Spy caught up with Lee by phone recently, (he’s a busy guy), to find out a bit more about him, the band and their upcoming show at the Bay Music Festival this Saturday in Centreville. Originally a 4-piece, they just added keyboard player Jake Bauer, the band has been together three years. Lee is the main songwriter, playing acoustic guitar and singing lead; other members are lead guitarist Andy Faile, drummer Paul Baker, and bassist Dave Hodge. They are all seasoned, veteran musicians with a love of performing live, energetic shows.
When asked to describe their music, Lee initially said, “new age country/rock,” then laughed and added, “I call it cocky county/rock.” Their sets are 30% -40% originals and the rest covers. He’s a big fan of Alan Jackson, Hank Williams and Bad Company. You can expect to hear a few of their originals as well as Lee’s favorites and yours when the band hits the Bay Music stage this Saturday. See you there.
Set time Saturday, June 9 – 6:50 pm
