Rest In Peace, Terry Callier

 

The Chicago born singer-songwriter and true music legend, Terry Callier, passed away this weekend. One of the most underrated artists ever, we’re proud to have hosted Terry’s first NYC show back in the late 90s.

In his career, Terry went on to contribute to the highly regarded Beth Orton Best Bit EP, released a handful of critically acclaimed albums, toured with George Benson and Gil Scott-Heron, and released Hidden Conversations in a novel collaboration with Massive Attack in 2009.

Below, listen to one of our favorite Callier tunes, “Ordinary Joe.”
