Winning Combination: The Todd Wolfe Band Joined by John Ginty

The Todd Wolfe Band, one of the hardest working blues-rock ensembles in the business, are joined by acclaimed organist John Ginty, for shows in the Northeast for a limited time throughout 2015.

Wolfe and Ginty had recently collaborated on the band’s highly-praised album, “Miles To Go” (American ShowplaceMusic). Ginty has toured and recorded with artists such as Jewel, Citizen Cope, Santana, Dixie Chicks, Matthew Sweet, and the Court Yard Hounds. The New Jersey native is an original member of Robert Randolph and the Family Band, for which he received two Grammy Nominations.

Longtime guitar ace Todd Wolfe is known for his work with the great Sheryl Crow (five years as her lead guitarist in the ’90’s), Carla Olson (the Textones); and Leslie West (Mountain), among others, throughout a stellar career. Todd and band had just returned from yet another road trip – four in 2014 alone, totalling close to 40,000 miles, from the Czech Republic to San Francisco – and received year-end accolades including a “Best Band” win from RockWired Magazine. Wolfe has released eight albums since 1999 and has written songs for acts as diverse as country star Faith Hill and Stevie Nicks.

New Artists: Alastair Greene Band & Todd Wolfe Band

Alastair Greene Band & Todd Wolfe Band sign with the Tina Terry Agency for exclusive world-wide representation.


Blues and rock have met at many different crossroads. From Cream and Johnny Winter to Stevie Ray Vaughan and Gov’t Mule these blues rock recipes are often boiled down to a simple trio. Such is the melting pot of influences and presentation of the Alastair Greene Band.

Not only is Greene a blues rock guitar slinging and singing front man, but he has also served many years as a side man to some legendary musicians. Currently, Greene is the touring guitarist with Alan Parsons and has been touring internationally with the English pop/ progressive rock veteran since 2010. After Greene played on Parsons’ 2004 release A Valid Path, Alan was quoted as saying, “Alastair should be out playing guitar with the biggest bands in the world. I believe it’s just a matter of time.” Heady praise indeed coming from the man who engineered Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon, served as second engineer on the last two albums by the Beatles, and has also sold millions of albums with his own Alan Parsons Project. When the guitar slot for Parsons’ band opened in 2010, Greene got the call. Alastair has also appeared on albums by high profile artists such as drum legend Aynsely Dunbar as well as Toad the Wet Sprocket front man Glen Phillips.

Alastair Greene Band is touring worldwide in support of “Trouble at Your Door.(Eclecto Groove Records).



The Todd Wolfe Band recall the days when “men were men and amps were amps,” real tubes crackling with a blues-adelic sound reminiscent of the best rock and roll bands of the ‘60s. This band jams and rocks, but their music is deeply soaked in blues. Todd Wolfe, Roger Voss and bassist Justine Gardner have established themselves as one of top power trios by relentless international touring and spreading their legend from coast-to- coast and beyond.

In the ‘80s, Todd formed Troy & the Tornados, and they opened for many acts constantly performing in the New York metro area. Todd also met two women in this time period that would eventually play a part in his guitar playing experience: Carla Olson of the Textones and Sheryl Crow, who at the time was an unknown back-up singer. By the late ‘80s, Sheryl had sat in several times with Todd in New York City after being introduced to him by the man who would eventually manage both of them. Todd decided to fly out to Los Angeles and write with Sheryl and showcase their new band in hopes of a record deal. Nothing came of this particular venture, but these two would find each other again on the same stage. Todd decided to re-locate to Los Angeles with revamped line-ups and began to perform in small clubs in southern California while also scoring music for the Playboy Channel and eventually joined up with old friend Carla Olson and her latest band. But it wasn’t long until Todd was back with Sheryl Crow, as she had just completed her soon to be released debut album, the multi-platinum Tuesday Night Music Club. Crow needed a touring band, including a lead guitarist that could add some extra excitement to the live shows and Todd filled that role for almost five years, touring the world!

After Todd left Sheryl’s band he had a varying lineup of players including Eric Massimino, Michael Lawrence, Rich Pagano, Dave Hollingsworth and other players of merit to where he settled in with the current lineup of Roger Voss on drums and Justine Gardner on bass. Todd’s eighth release since leaving Sheryl’s band, “Miles To Go” in a short time has garnered much praise and great reviews are still rolling in. The band has kept busy with constant tours of Europe and across the USA and Canada.

Responsible Agent for the US Northeast and Eastern Canada Territory

Ryan Baker (second from right) joins the Tina Terry Agency

Ryan Baker of Voodoo Music Entertainment, Wichita, KS, joins the Tina Terry Agency as the Agent for all artist bookings in the Northeast US territory and Eastern Canada.

Baker grew up in a family where music is what put food on the table. Baker’s father grew up playing in the Kansas music scene of the 60’s & early 70’s in Topeka, Kansas where The Germs, The Fabulous Flames and Kansas were making a scene for the Midwest.  With the artistic side in his blood he went to college as a Graphic Designer. During that time he kept his ears open listening and spending a great deal of money on CD’s creating a vast multi-genred library of music. Baker read books about music folklore of the great musicians in the past which lead to his desire to know how their music was created and how it stands the test of time. That led to his desires to be a part of the music business himself. It lead to the desire to be his own boss and blaze his own trial. A decade after graduating from college, with music in his heart and business on his brain, Baker decided to jump feet first and joined his first band. They played all original Americana music. This lead to him becoming the band’s Booking Agent. It was the venture where Baker found his passion and he never looked back. Voodoo Music Entertainment was created and has been in existence for 10 solid years. He has worked with rock & blues genres both in Management and Booking. Baker has also served as Talent Buyer for many events, and specifically at times putting on festivals and concert events at multiple venues.  He is the creator of the Kansas Blues Blast Festival now in its 4th year.

With all of Ryan’s experience and talent, we are honored he choose to join the Tina Terry Agency family.

Tina Terry Agency Adds a New Agent: Welcome Amberly Stokes to the Family

Amberly Stokes was raised in the rich musical heritage of Harlan County, KY, in the heart of Appalachia. The well-known economic challenges of her home sent her seeking her fortune in the equally-rich musical environment of Chicago where she first encountered the Blues. Her affinity for the genre was immediate and she gravitated to the high-energy performances and personalities. Tony Mangiullo, of legendary Rosa’s Lounge convinced her to work for the club and this immersion in the world of Chicago Blues has given her an appreciation and perspective, a crash-course in the power of the music. Amberly shares in general management of the venue as well as special events, public relations, promo and takes special pride in her work with support and fund-raising within the Blues Community.   Her work ethics and dedication to the Blues aided in Rosa’s Lounge being awarded the Blues Foundation’s 2015 KBA Recipient for Blues Club of the Year.

Amberly joins our team as the Agent for IL, IN, WI and MI. We are honored she has joined the agency and we are proud to bring her into the next phase of her musical career.

Seth Walker to Perform on “Circle of the Song” Tour

Seth joins Ed Jurdi (of Band of Heathens) and Edward David Anderson on the inaugural “Circle of the Song Tour” this winter.

As far back as we can remember, humanity has been compelled to gather around song. Whether as a centerpiece for celebration, a reflection on loss or a calling to inspire community; in the form of ballads, blues, spirituals and countless other variations, timeless songs have been integral to the narrative of their times. With that idea in mind, three of this generation’s most devoted artists to the art of the song: Ed Jurdi, Seth Walker and Edward David Anderson will head out of the road together to perform in the round, share their extensive bodies of work with one another, pick on a few classics and celebrate…The Circle Of The Song.

As a founding member and leader of the Austin, TX rock and roll outfit The Band of Heathens, Ed Jurdi has been an essential element in defining the band’s kaleidoscopic American sound. From festival performances at Bonnaroo, Austin, City Limits and Hardly Strictly Bluegrass to over a thousand one-nighters in clubs and theaters across the United States and Europe, The Band of Heathens have built a reputation as one of today’s hardest working bands. Originally from the Boston area, Jurdi has forged a sound both rooted in the past and pointing toward the future. An ardent student of the masters of American music, he brings the passion of a gospel sermon and juxtaposes it against a gathering of merry pranksters with a soulful delivery and timeless voice.

Seth Walker is pure Southern troubadour. He grew up in North Carolina and came of age in Austin, Texas where he became renowned on the contemporary blues and roots scene. After a stint in Nashville, Walker now resides in New Orleans. All of these geographical influences coalesce on his most recent album, Sky Still Blue. Produced by Oliver Wood of The Wood Brothers, it revels in the devil-on-my-trail gristle, longing blue notes and pop-wise song-craft that has become Walker’s forte. The Vinyl District perhaps summed up Seth best when praising him as “an accomplished guitarist and an even better singer, distilling the soul of Ray Charles, the Southern boy roots charm of Delbert McClinton, and an uptown blues turn of phrase (à la Percy Mayfield) into his own distinct voice.”

Prior to 2014, many knew Edward David Anderson best from his critically acclaimed, vintage American rock band, Backyard Tire Fire. That all changed earlier this year, however, when Anderson struck out on his own with his debut solo release, Lies & Wishes. Produced by Steve Berlin of Los Lobos, it presents Anderson’s most autobiographical material yet, exploring the loss of his mother and the dissolution of his band. It’s a collection of songs that embrace vulnerability, while rooted in Anderson’s working class aesthetic. Performer Magazine declared: “Anderson pulls from the pockets of country, blues and Americana, capturing a different hue as the genres shift, in a juxtaposition of warm-hearted openness and biting self-doubt.” Born and raised in the Midwest, Anderson currently splits his time between Bloomington, Illinois and lower Alabama.

Sugar Blue, Joe Krown Trio and Cassie Taylor join the Tina Terry Agency for Exclusive Representation

It is an honor to rejoin forces with Sugar Blue, Joe Krown Trio, and Cassie Taylor.

sugar, joe, cassieSUGAR BLUE:
Sugar Blue is known as the Jimi Hendrix and Charlie Parker of the harmonica for his astonishing technical mastery. His style is melodically fluid, instantly recognizable for its soaring trills, flamboyant flourishes and swooping glissandos that bring the tiny dynamo’s remarkable sonic and emotional range to life. Blue has made a few appearances on the big screen too: he performed in the Cinemax special, Fats Domino and Friends, (with Ray Charles, Jerry Lee Lewis and others) in the 1987 thriller, Angel Heart starring Robert DeNiro and in the recent years in “The Perfect Age of Rock’n’Roll” along with Pinetop Perkins, Hubert Sumlin, Ruby Dee and Peter Fonda. After a brace of albums, Blue Blazes (1994) and In Your Eyes (1995), on the prestigious Alligator label, Blue took a 12-year hiatus from the studio, returning in 2008 with the highly acclaimed Code Blue., followed by Threshold and his latest work, a powerful live double album “Raw Sugar Live”. Sugar Blue is currently working meticulously on a studio album to release soon.

Joe Krown (Hammond B-3), Walter Wolfman Washington (guitar & vocals) & Russell Batiste (drums & background vocals) started playing together in March 2007. The trio has been performing every Sunday at a local New Orleans nightclub, the Maple Leaf Bar. The combination of the soulful vocals of Walter with the big sound of the Hammond B-3 (which Joe also plays all of the bass parts on the B-3) and the masterful drumming skills of Russell Batiste Jr. has developed it’s own unique sound. The trio recorded and released a live CD, Live at the Maple Leaf(JK1003) in the fall of 2008. Live at the Maple won a 2009 Offbeat Award for Best R&B/Funk CD. The trio also won a 2009 Big Easy Award in the “Best Rhythm & Blues Band” category. In the fall of 2010, the Trio released Triple Threat (JK1004), the follow up to Live at the Maple Leaf and their first studio CD. The trio’s current release and 3rd CD Soul Understanding (JK1006) was released at the end of April 2013.

At age 26, Cassie Taylor is already a veteran musician. She’s spent a decade playing bass and singing on stage and in the studio with her father, modern-day blues innovator Otis Taylor. And now, with the May 7, 2013 release of her new album “Out of My Mind” on Yellow Dog Records, Cassie stakes her own claim as an artist of intelligence, power and soul. Overall, the album is a masterful testament to Taylor’s artistic evolution, which began at the tender age of 12 when she picked up a bass and played the iconic line of the blues-rock anthem “Hey Joe” perfectly after being shown the lick just once. Soon after that the young prodigy joined her father’s band as bassist and backing singer. Today she is an outspoken champion of other young budding artists as a member of the Blues Foundation’s Board of Directors. She leads the organization’s Generation Blues initiative, which provides performers under the age of 21 with musical scholarships. “In concert I’ll play Nine Inch Nails’ ‘Closer’ and segue into Muddy Waters’ ‘I Just Want To Make’ Love To You’ to make a point — they’re equally grounded in blues; they both have the same message and the same changes, and prove that this musical tradition is relevant today.”

We are proud to announce that Peter Karp & Sue Foley have joined the TTA family – welcome aboard!


Official Website:

“Karp’s a great writer and performer whose songs are driven by verbal word play and insights into the human experience. Like James Taylor and Bob Dylan, Karp embodies Americana music.”

– USA Today

Peter Karp

Gifted singer-songwriter, guitarist, pianist and American troubadour, Peter Karp, is a master songsmith with an art for spinning true-to-life emotions, humor, and candor. With an upbringing that was equal parts southern Alabama and the swamps of New Jersey, Karp¹s music is fueled bythe Yankee-Rebel juxtaposition. He first caught national attention with help from Rolling Stone guitarist Mick Taylor who recorded and toured with Karp on his first label release “The Turning Point.” Karp further established himself on the national scene as a critically acclaimed songwriter, and accomplished guitarist and pianist with the release of his Blind Pig debut entitled “Shadows and Cracks.” On the road across the U.S. and Canada, Karp repeatedly transfixes his live audiences. Critics compare his songwriting to John Hiatt and John Prine, with impressive guitar and slide licks infused by his love of Freddie King and Elmore James. Peter Karp personifies the amorphous Americana sound,seamlessly blending blues and roots music with a high sense of entertainment.

Sue Foley
Sue Foley is considered to be one of the finest blues and roots artists working today. Born to a working class family, Sue spent her early childhood moving from Canadian town to town with her mother. At sixteen, she embarked on her professional career. By twenty-one, she was living in Austin TX and recording for the legendary blues label, Antone¹s Records. Her first release, “Young Girl Blues,” quickly established her unique talents as a blues guitarist and songwriter. Throughout the 90¹s she took to the road with her paisley Telecaster and honed her craft, working and sharing the stage with such artists as BB King, Buddy Guy, Lucinda Williams and Tom Petty. After moving back to Canada, Sue won the prestigious Juno Award for her critically acclaimed CD “Love Coming Down” as well as seventeen Maple Blues Awards.

The Perterson Brothers Join Tina Terry Agency

We are proud to announce that The Peterson Brothers have joined The Tina Terry Agency. Welcome aboard!

Five years ago the late Pinetop Perkins’ manager Pat Morgan gave Glenn and Alex Peterson their first opportunity to play onstage with the legendary bluesman. It became immediately apparent from that debut at Antone’s in Austin, Texas that these two very talented young musicians showed great promise for the future.

Five years on they have lived up to those expectations and The Peterson Brothers Band has appeared in front of thousands of enthusiastic fans at numerous clubs and Blues festivals across the country, including the prestigious Chicago Blues Festival and The King Biscuit Festival in Helena AR. They have also opened shows for such major artists as B.B.King, Los Lonely Boys, Lisa Marie Presley, Michael Burks, Pinetop Perkins & Willie “Big Eyes” Smith, Marcia Ball, and The Fabulous Thunderbirds. Buddy Guy invited them to share the stage with him during one of his shows at ACL Live in Austin.

robert taylor-houston-may 29 2014

The two brothers have surprisingly deep musical influences and reference points for such young musicians which have in great part, helped form their styles of playing and performance as they continue to develop and grow.

Glenn, 17 years old, plays guitar and is the lead vocalist and delivers the blues with a heavy influence of funk in his rhythm guitar playing and a smooth, jazz influenced technique combined with a traditional blues approach to his leads. He reaches back for inspiration that runs from more contemporary players like Robert Cray, Carlos Santana, Michael Burks, Stevie Ray and Jimmy Vaughan to jazz icons like Wes Montgomery and Kenny Burrell to Blues greats like BB King, Albert King and Freddy King, Buddy Guy, Albert Collins, Hubert Sumlin, T-Bone Walker and Lightnin Hopkins.

Alex, 14 years old, plays bass guitar, violin and also sings. He brings the anchor and the feel to the group, often with a funk and jazz style. Like his brother, he is a wealth of knowledge about his instrument and the musicians he studies and who have influenced him. They include Victor Wooten, Marcus Miller, Jaco Pastorius, Larry Graham, Bootsy Collins, Ron Carter, Donald “Duck” Dunn”, Bob Stroger, and James Jamerson.

The Peterson Brothers have solidified their place on the Austin music scene and are becoming recognized across the country as true prodigies with a deep Blues sensibility that belies their years. Fans eagerly await their forthcoming album.

“We have been so blessed to have so many wonderful musicians and professionals guide and mentor us on our musical journey,” says Glenn. “Our goals are to record and tour in the future, but I think the most important goal for every musician is to make sure that the people who listen are enjoying our music.”
