Terry Vickery and Joe Jewell have been lifelong friends, both natives of Syracuse, NY. Over the many years, Terry and Joe have been involved in numerous musical collaborations, but none had so far led to a recording. All that changed in 2010 when Terry and Joe were joined by Mike Bennett on drums, Baba Elefante on bass, and master producer/engineer Jim Linahon to produce DRIVE MY FEARS AWAY. Terry is a brilliant vocalist, songwriter, acoustic guitarist and harmonica player. His songs reflect his own experiences, reflections on modern issues, and stories from his own imagination. Dr. Joe is an accomplished electric and acoustic guitarist, having enjoyed a 35-year career on the music scenes of New York and Southern California. DRIVE MY FEARS AWAY presents Terry's narrative songwriting talents, showcasing nine originals and two covers. Joe's production, arranging and performing on this material brings the stories even further to light. The driving rhythm section of Baba and Mike launches some compelling grooves and Jim Linahon's aural talents makes everything sound just so good. We hope music fans of all ages, people who enjoy a well-told story and some well-played music will enjoy this CD.
