A "blue moon" is used colloquially to mean "a rare event" this album! It is reflected in the phrase "once in a blue moon" this album!


 For me every song is a story it reveals time and places, emotions, hopes, fears, love and the lack thereof...and of dreams.

 The songs you hear on Blue Moon... is my "rare" once in a Blue Moon occasion to reveal myself through songs...they span my lifetime. My moon has surely turned from blue to gold.

~ Terri New

The music in this album represent a lot of years of living, singing, surviving and great adventures. I had many dreams growing up...I dreamed I could make a difference in my eleven brothers and sisters lives, that I could maybe put food on the table or I could become a star and everything would be alright. We could get off welfare, we could get help for my schizophrenic mother...I could, I could...but it didn't turn out that way.  I made many bad decisions,  did things for the wrong reasons. My brothers and sisters made their own ways, picking themselves up by the bootstraps. I am very proud of who they have become. I left a bad relationship behind me, to experience a few more bad ones....It took me a while to get things right, to do what I loved, that I could contribute to making a better world and to realize that I could have a mutual, respectful lovely person as my partner... it only took me about 40 some years to get to that!

There are three people, I wish to especially thank, people who were really consummate, inspirational artists and shared in my adventures. They are special lovely people who live in my heart, who were so good to me, who believed in me, supported my ambitions and graciously provided their talents to me. I dedicate this body of work to them...  sadly, two are not with us anymore, but I offer this late arrival to these beautiful men I had the fortune to have in my musical life, Bob Esty, Paul Delph and Bud Bell.

  Bob Esty

Bob Esty, an extraordinary man, extraordinary producer and dear friend. Paul Delph, composer, musician, a rarified, beautiful person and Bud Bell, an amazing pianist with a heart of gold (sadly Paul and Bud have passed on..we shall see you on the other side dear friends and pick up where we left off!)


I also want to thank my wonderful family, my brothers and sisters for being such inspirtational, exceptional, fun-loving, kind, smart people who I have always had the good fortune to share the love of music with! There is nothing' like a "New" Gathering!

My brothers and sisters. Love you All! ( From left, Bob, Marty, Pat, Mike, Joan, James, Kathy, (moi) Terri & Becky. Maggie not shown...we are at my sweet oldest sister Karen's funeral. The first of us to pass away...

While this album is far from was simply time. Please forgive, where my particular ineptitudes show...

Tracks 1-6 represent my most recent recording efforts. The others are a lot a history! You can imagine that at age 60 I have a whole lot a history!


And a Big Special Thanks to David Almasi!
