:: TERRY HAYDEN ::
Lead Guitar, Vocals, Engineer
Born and raised in Northern California, Terry Hayden has been playing music professionally for more than 30 years.
He has studied the Rock bands from the 1960s and 1970s and is a fan of The Rolling Stones among other English Rock Bands.
His edge is that he plays the Blues with a different feel.
It's edgy when need be and sweet as can be when the song calls for it.
He and Leisa K are a great songwriting team, primarily because he fully understands where Leisa K is coming from with her ideas, grooves, and melodies.
