Platinum Rush Video Blog #5 — Jesse Terry

"Traveler" should be added to the usual "singer/songwriter" monicker when it comes to Jesse Terry.

And maybe add "hard-worker" while we're at it.

I caught up with Jesse on the road, backstage at Steel City in Phoenixville, Pa.

Jesse shares lessons learned both musically and career-wise.

And the man with two first names should know. He's a highly regarded writer and singer with songs in commercials, international tours and a spot on the biggest music fest in 2015!

Perhaps his best asset though is his sheer like-ability!

Scot Sax knows his way around a solid pop song. The Philadelphia musician has been writing them for years, whether it was with his own bands Wanderlust and Feel, or as a purveyor of hits for singers like Faith Hill and Tim McGraw. It was Sax, in fact, who co-wrote the country duo’s Grammy-winning smash “Like We Never Loved At All.” His catchy “I Am the Summertime,” penned while with the band Bachelor Number One, was featured in the blockbuster “American Pie.” And he’s netted countless TV credits, with song placements in shows like “Ghost Whisperer,” “NCIS,” “CSI: NY” and “Keeping up with the Kardashians.” He toured as a guitarist with Sharon Little throughout North America supporting Robert Plant and Alison Krauss' Raising Sand. His filmmaking debut, the documentary "Platinum Rush," is currently being entered into film festivals worldwide and will premiere in 2015. Sax lives in Nashville with his family.
