Terry Robert Kirkman (born December 12, 1939) is a musician and writer of the hit songs "Cherish," "Everything That Touches You," and "Six Man Band."


Kirkman left the band The Men in 1964 to become a founding member and sometime leader of the musical group The Association.[1] Kirkman co-wrote some material with fellow group member and friend Jules Alexander. His "Requiem For The Masses," a song written about the war in Vietnam, featured requiem-style vocals.[2] In 1964, while he was dating a girl named Barbara Bivens, he introduced her sister Beverly to what became, with her as their lead singer, the folk rock group We Five.
