Terry Lee Hale

“Hale performs his songs as serenely as Lou Reed, with a lightness like CALEXICO and the melancholy of Howe Gelb” – Ox-Fanzine

Terry Lee Hale has been releasing his songs and albums for more than three decades. Born in Texas, he is widely regarded as one of the godfathers of the Seattle scene (including being the only singer-songwriter on the seminal 80s compilation Sub Pop 200) and currently resides in Marseille. His oeuvre is not merely Americana, roots music or rock and roll. It encompasses all of these, of course, but Hale’s work cannot be pigeonholed, is – like himself – a true original.
