Jesse Terry Bio:
With his down-to-earth appeal and deceptively sharp writing, Jesse Terry plants himself firmly among the most promising singer-songwriters of his generation. His 2009 debut, The Runner, which was licensed to popular MTV shows The Hills and The City, introduced him as an inspired prodigy with the potential to score big on the Americana scene. Michael McCall of the Nashville Scene lauded Terry for offering "a sophisticated melodic touch to his tender musings about love and finding his place in the world." While the sounds of popular music become increasingly inflated, he wades into the fray with graceful, understated arrangements that embrace his ambitious songs. Jesse recently performed a Premiere Showcase at Far West Folk Alliance and is a regular at the Bluebird Cafe, Nashville's premiere venue for emerging musical talent. He also recently performed at Florida’s prestigious 30A Songwriting Festival, along side such songwriting luminaries as Rodney Crowell, Dar Williams, Mary Gauthier and Mat Kearney. He will be one of the headlining acts for this year’s Plymouth Folk and Blues Festival, held in Plymouth Notch, VT. Jesse is currently finishing up the songs for his second album, which will be recorded by heralded producer/engineer/mixer/artist Neilson Hubbard (Kim Richey, Matthew Perryman Jones, Amy Speace, Glen Phillips).
Michael Logen Bio
Singer/songwriter Michael Logen has logged many miles on tour, in the studio, and in songwriting sessions, and his unique brand of alternative rootsy pop has landed him a deal with Nettwerk Music/Moraine Music, joining two rosters of already impressive acts. Logen, who has toured across 47 states as well as extensively in Europe, is a regular tour support act for Jonny Lang and Matt Kearney, and he has written with both of them as well as with Will Hoge, Katharine McPhee and Melissa Manchester, among others. Nettwerk is based in Vancouver and their roster includes many incredible artists including Old Crow Medicine Show, Sarah McLachlan and William Fitzsimmons. Moraine Music Group is based in Nashville, and is owned and run by Grammy-Award winning producer and songwriter Brent Maher (Tina Turner, Ray Charles, The Judds). Logen’s most recent album, Things I Failed To Mention, was released in 2007, after which he toured with Kearney. The two went on a writing trip to Istanbul together, on which they wrote the title track to Kearney’s new album, City of Black & White. Songs from Things I Failed To Mention were recently featured on MTV”s “Real World” and ABC’s “Kyle XY,” and Logen has won multiple awards including the International Songwriting Competition's 2009 Song of the Year Award in Folk/Singer-Songwriter Category, and Unisong International Songwriting Competition’s 2009 Song of the Year in the Americana Category.
About Armstrong Court Community Organic Garden
Armstrong Court Community Organic Garden was founded in April 2009 by a group of community members dedicated to organic gardening, sustainable living and the belief that community gardens can change health, wellness and the attitudes of the gardeners it serves. Located at the 144-unit Armstrong Court Housing Complex in Greenwich, CT, this 15,000 square foot garden dates back to the late 1960s, but was left dormant for over 30 years. Greenwich resident and life-long organic gardener, Patty Sechi, and a leadership group of seven are responsible for the garden’s rebirth, with the goal of creating a self-sustaining food source for residents of Armstrong Court and for members of the community. In time, they hope to create and support organic community gardens throughout Greenwich in order to ensure access to healthy, affordable food, to create opportunities for community building, and to encourage exercise, health and wellness.
