A country and blues singer/songwriter with over 300 original tunes
under her belt, Teri Garrison achieved great renown when her song “The
Eyes” recently won the Embassy Music Songwriter’s Contest in Nashville.
She’s been on Maui forever, garnering vocal comparisons to Janis Joplin
and playing gigs locally whenever she’s not on the road touring. She’s
sung with and opened for Leon Russell, Leo Kottke, David Crosby, Tanya
Tucker, Don Henley, Bonnie Raitt and Willie Nelson. And she’s got an
album produced by and featuring Nelson, also called The Eyes—hey, it’s
a lucky title. You can catch her live on Sundays at Jack’s Terrace, 843
Waine’e St., Lahaina, from 7 p.m. to close.
