Songs From Another Life is the new CD long player from Galaxy award winning singer/songwriter, Terry Shaughnessy
Terry grew up completely surrounded by music. Uncles who played in bands, a mother who was a member of the Small Faces Fan Club in her teens and an avid fan of Otis Redding and all things Stax and other family members who were, and still are, avid vinyl record collectors. Everything from The Beatles to Neil Young to Little Feat to Jackson Browne to Dave Brubeck and Miles Davis filled up hours and days and nights. Always writing from an early age, whether it be poems, short stories or just plain old commentary, Shaughnessy decided to take the next logical step and write songs in earnest, taking them out on the road in the beginning with just his voice and an acoustic guitar as backing.
Terry has also worked with producers Winston Rollins and the Jools Holland Rhythm and Blues Orchestra and also with Tim Holmes of Death In Vegas. With his band The Universal, Terry has also played along side, great legends those being Ian McLagan and Joe Strummer. Other shows have included sharing the stage with Ocean Colour Scene, Trio Valore, Steve Cradock, The Chords, The View, The Proclaimers, Secret Affair and legends that are The Zombies. Festivals appearances around Europe have also been a mainstay. Playing shows at Oxegen Festival, T in the Park, Glastonbury and Fest n Mind in France, to name but a few.
Shaughnessy has his own personal ethic of ‘Musician Minus Ego Plus Fire’. This meant that band members had to leave their egos at the side of the stage, with everyone becoming a slave to the song and all its needs.
