Crispin Glover Records presenterer:

En av våre helter er tilbake i byen. Terry har levert noen enestående konserter tidligere, og rapporteres i storform. Og i tillegg ,spiller Mattis Kleppen først, også en favoritt 🙂
Fint summert av thewilhelmsen.com her:

Terry Lee Hale er texaneren som burde være en verdensstjerne og kjent for alle, en singer/songwriter jeg lett plasserer blant de fineste som har gitt ut skiver de siste 20-30 årene. Jeg holder ham like høyt som Steve Earle, John Hiatt, Peter Case, Elliott Smith, Vic Chesnutt og Jason Molina, så med andre ord er han blant mine favorittmusikanter som fortsatt tråkker på denne jord.

Mattis Kleppen – Bassgitar

Here, there and everywhere; singer-songwriter Terry Lee Hale’s seen them all. An Army brat, he was born in Texas and inspired to pick up the guitar by hearing an old Billy Haley 78 he found in a bedroom closet and seeing The Beatles on Ed Sullivan. By the time he was 18 he’d already seen much of the United States and landed in Yakima, Washington. From there, carrying an old Gretsch Tennessean guitar, it was San Francisco, then across the country to Maine, living and learning. Time and the interstates carried him around the country until 1984 brought Terry Lee Hale to Seattle.

He began opening for the local rock bands, acts like Soundgarden, Skin Yard, Screaming Trees and the Walkabouts, and booking bands at venues around the city. Seattle was changing. From being a backwater, it was suddenly America’s most liveable city, and the underground music scene that had raged around town was beginning to break out nationally. By 1989 Terry Lee has released his first album, Fools Like Me, and appeared on the seminal Sup Pop 200 compilation – the only singer-songwriter there.

Those releases were the first of many. For several years Terry Lee was a fixture on the Seattle scene, playing the clubs and bars around town with his strange open guitar tunings and his dark, dangerous songs. More albums followed, Little Wood Guitar, My Confession and Oh, What a World. Seattle had been his home longer than anywhere else, but musically he still didn’t fit in. In a place supposedly free and easy, but where the musical lines were sharply etched, he remained the consummate outsider.

All that changed with an offer out of the blue to release Oh, What a World in Europe. In 1993 he toured the continent, opening shows for the Walkabouts. He made friends in France, and within a few years he was spending more time there than in the US, recording and releasing a series of eight CDs for the Glitterhouse label. By 2004, and the release of Celebration What For, his eleventh album, Terry Lee Hale was living full-time in France, a long, long way from San Marcos, Texas. Here, there and definitely everywhere.

2007 saw him teaming up with a pair of old Seattle friends, Chris Eckman of the Walkabouts and engineer/producer Tucker Martine to make Shotgun Pillowcase. By now most of his touring was in Europe, working from his base in Paris. Proof of a Promise followed in 2010, working once more with Eckman.

In 2013, Terry Lee Hale is back after a three-year break from recording. The Long Draw with Glitterhouse Records for a October 2013 release, is his most accomplished set in a long career.

Mattis Kleppen har release på sin tredje plate ”Bassgitar” på Crispin Glover Records.

Etter to kritikerroste album, ”Mattis Kleppen og Resjemheia” og ”El Bokko”, har Mattis Kleppen nå kjent tida moden for å lage et album med kun bruk av solo bassgitar. Denne formelen er sjelden kost uansett sjanger og stil, og må være et av svært få plater laget på denne måten. Det gjør dette albumet til pionerarbeid for bassgitaren som et solistisk instrument.

Musikken er som de to foregående platene satt sammen på en særegen og uortodoks måte: hardingfeleslåtter fra Telemark, tradisjonell musikk fra Mali, eget materiale, og en dæsj Townes Van Zandt. Stikkord er melankoli, nevroser, melodier og groove. Dyp og sjangerfri musikk for alle.

Albumet er produsert av Olav Torget, masteret av Magnus Kofoed, og coveret er som de to foregående laget av Per Spjøtvold.
