Terry Blersh is a veteran local guitarist and singer-songwriter who has had his own band on the club scene since 1992. He has also played and recorded with Rita Chiarelli, Cameo Blues Band, Johnny Max among numerous others. He's a roots rocker, basically, with original songs ranging in style from blues to R&B, rock 'n roll and jazz. His two blues here, "Wearin' Out My Heart" and "Walkin'" are very good as are the more R&B numbers, "Doin' All Right" and "I Don't Need No". The opening "Tryin'" was written as a comeback song for Elvis but it turned out that it was completed on the day he died. The coincidence was such a shock that Blersh has only recently started performing it again. There is also a fine version of Hendrix' "Fire". Blersh has a serviceable voice and a powerful guitar style. He has also surrounded himself with the cream of our local heroes: Denis Keldie, Garth Hudson & Lance Anderson on keys, Al Cross, Mike Sloski or Charlie Cooley on drums, Tom Griffiths, Garth Vogan or Alec Fraser on bass and John Mays on backing vocals. This one's definitely worth checking out.
