Kansas City songwriter, Teri Quinn, writes songs that harmonize sweet with savory, entwine lace with barbed-wire, and romance old-fashioned charm with modern grit. Quinn’s clawhammer banjo hums and hollers, and her lyrics are both celestial and cerebral. Her enchanting voice and lyricism is a timeless elevation of the feminine and fearless.
