TG3 is Terry Gillespie • Wayne Stoute • Lyndell Montgomery   Peter Measroch

 “Going back to the days of Ottawa’s criminally unheralded ‘Heaven’s Radio’ Terry Gillespie has been a soulful groove master.  On  ‘BLUESOUL’ his eclectic musical taste has honed in on a distinctive highbred body of intelligent material, resulting in his first, long awaited ‘all blues’ release.  Terry says:  ‘getting inside the groove is where it’s at’.  Like Mark Knopfler, JJ Cale or JB Lenoir, he is a player whose comfortable voice perfectly suits his economical deep guitar grooves.   Nothing’s wasted and nothing’s missing. “ Holger Petersen, CBC’s Saturday Night Blues, CKUA’s Natch’l Blues and Stony Plain Records

This is a short video of 'Reviews'.


New Mown Lawn performed at a recent fundraiser with a 9 piece band. Love the singers.

“Big Money, a fascinating crossover album of blues, jazz, reggae and funk” - The Edmonton Journal

"The highly regarded critic Tim Holek has called him Canada’s “King of Roots Music.” He has indeed been a bit of a Canadian blues legend for 40 years."- Mark E. Gallo- Blues Bytes

"Today their music is a sweet tiramisu consisting of liquor-soaked layers of Blues, Reggae, Country, and Jazz." - Richard Ludmerer, Vice President, New York Blues and Jazz Society

"This CD (Brother of the Blues) is truly one of the best that I have ever reviewed!" Mike Graham, OBScene, Ottawa Blues Society

BROTHER OF THE BLUES: BluesWax Rating: 9 out of 10

"Terry Gillespie is one of the most sincerely talented musicians in Canada. He's a bluesman to the core, but not in the traditional sense for he has range and influences that take it to a whole new level. His blues is the truth and it comes through with every word and melody he wraps his soulful voice around. This is real." -Sue Foley

BROTHER OF THE BLUES was on Saturday Night Blues charts for 5 months, Jan to May 2007.


There are lots of videos, both with a full dance band or acoustic on my YouTube Page:
