Canadian Artist Terrill Blankley has a smokey, soulful voice that is a perfect match for his authentic Blues/Jazz piano playing. Working as a front man vocalist and keyboardist, he has performed and recorded around the world, from Toronto and Winnipeg, to Dublin and Nashville. Terrill's music has been featured on Fashion TV and CBC TV, and he has released several studio albums to great acclaim.
Terrill Blankley has received numerous rave reviews, including this one from Eric Thom, Exclaim, Magazine: “There's something incredibly soothing about a Terry Blankley disc. His extremely laid back approach is instantly audible, complemented by superb musicianship, bulletproof confidence and an ear for arranging that triggers countless musical flashbacks... His keyboard prowess is best realized by the rich flourish of jazz phrasing shooting skyward from his piano. Like a Randy Newman, Blankley doesn't necessarily hit all the notes he shoots for, but he doesn't have to. A dedicated journeyman with his heart on his sleeve..."
