Terri Hendrix (born 13 February 1968) is a singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and independent artist from San Marcos, Texas, who has been offering an eclectic brand of Americana — encompassing folk, pop, country, blues and jazz — for more than two decades.[1] To date, Hendrix has released 14 albums on her own Wilory Records label, co-wrote the Grammy-winning song "Lil' Jack Slade" by the Dixie Chicks, and, in 2011, published a book, Cry Til You Laugh — The Part That Ain’t Art.[2] Known for her live shows and positive energy, Hendrix says she lives by the adage “own your own universe,” a lyric from one of her earliest songs. In addition to writing and performing, Hendrix conducts songwriting workshops both inside and outside of Texas,[3] and has established a nonprofit community arts center in San Marcos, OYOU ("Own Your Own Universe"), offering educational and therapeutic arts programs, including for those who face neurological challenges or physical disabilities.[4]
