Feel Alive (Sally Terrell Music)

Sally Terrell’s professional singing career may be a “second act” following a career as an English professor, but music has always been her first love. She began playing piano and singing at age six, poking out melodies alongside her father, a classically trained pianist and jazz aficionado who passed along his love for music while discovering his youngest daughter could play and sing by ear. Terrell’s intuitive interpretations and razor-sharp ear showcase “smart jazzbo instincts and a forward-thinking vision.” Her latest release, Feel Alive, “artfully captures the zeitgeist of the pandemic era.”
