“Terri is a truly self-made woman. With 12 albums in release on her own label since 1996, she makes me jealous. Playing mostly in the Texas-Louisiana cradle, she eventually moved on out and has traversed the US many times now. I love this track [“Slow Down”] – great song with a fine backing track featuring plenty of mandolin (one of my fave instruments).” — Al Kooper (Guitarist, Writer, Producer), #6 Track of the Year “Slow Down,” Boston Herald

Part of the beauty of Terri Hendrix’s music is she’s among the best at recognizing, writing about and celebrating resilience and common ground, the things we can all cry, and laugh, about.” — Jim Beal Jr., San Antonio Express-News

“… She is the consummate triple threat, excelling as a songwriter, performer and recording artist. With more than a dozen albums in her catalog, she seems equally comfortable with blues, folk, story songs, ballads, folk-rock, country and a surprisingly fresh take on New Orleans-style jazz and jazz swing.” — Jim Lipson, Feature: Owning Her Own Universe, Tucson Weekly

“With a stylistic sweep that encompasses country, blues, jazz and practically everything in between, Texan Terri Hendrix has created a flourishing cottage industry with a consistent string of albums hailed by fans and critics alike.” — Lee Zimmerman, M: Music & Musicians

USA Today spotlighted the song “Einstein’s Brain” as a “Playlist” top 10 pick of the week, calling it “a bittersweet reflection on life’s limits, rendered with Hendrix’s usual rootsy grace.”

“Hendrix has some very dark moments in her lyrics, even though, as anyone who’s seen her can attest, her constant smile lights up the dimmest room … Terri Hendrix takes life’s lemons and turns them into fresh-squeezed lemonade.” — John Conquest, 3rd Coast Music

“Cry Till You Laugh is quite simply a 100% Terri Hendrix tour de force.” — Arthur Wood, Maverick Magazine

“Her supple voice is absolutely sublime on ‘Automatic,’ and the torchy, bluesy ‘Sometimes,’ proves she could go toe-to-toe with any jazz singer on the planet.” — Lynne Margolis, Colorado Springs Independent

“The belle of San Marcos, TX, has outdone herself on [Cry Till You Laugh]. It covers a lot of ground musically and lyrically, and it’s just one of those things you can put in the CD player for anyone and they’ll enjoy it.” — Shawn Underwood, Twangville

“With elements of folk, rock, country and such jazz flavors as Dixieland and big band, [Cry Till You Laugh] is a genuinely masterful set of 15 tracks that are sure to be enjoyed if not treasured by music fans who have yet to discover this wonderful artist.” — Rob Patterson, Populist Picks
