Terri Hendrix is an award-winning Texas songwriter who spins sorrow into joy and wrings wisdom from the blues with the poetic grace and uplifting melodic flair that has long been her trademark. A classically trained vocalist and deft multi-instrumentalist (guitar, mandolin and harmonica), she dodges musical pigeonholes alongside Lloyd Maines (guitar, dobro, pedal steel), by weaving folk, pop, country, blues and swinging jazz into an eclectic style all her own.
Lloyd Maines has been playing around Texas since the 1970’s and is a remarkable talent on the guitar, pedal steel, dobro, mandolin and banjo. With all of the opportunities open to him, he chooses to spend a great deal of his time touring with the ultra-talented singer-songwriter, Terri Hendrix.
Terri also started a non-profit organization, Own Your Own Universe (OYOU), teaching children to garden and more! Check it out at
