Hailing from Nashville, Tn, Rock Artist, Terry Lee Bolton, has his own way of telling his story. His cd "Don't Let The Hat Fool Ya!" Brings Southern flavor with a mix of Rock, Blues and Funk that races against time and the wind.

Having received endorsements from Fernandes Guitars, Rocktron Amps,Daisy Rock Guitars, Danelectro Guitars, Sabian Cymbals, Taye Drums of Canada, Pintech Electronic Percussion, Unigrip Drum Sticks, GHS Strings, Star Audio Cables, Levy's Guitar Straps of Canada, The Sound Enhancer, Jay Turser Guitars and more, Terry Lee Bolton has received a total of 23 corporate endorsements because of his music.

With a rich blend of Americana, a little bit of Rock, and a bit of Rockabilly, the song A 1000 Years Gone brings mystery to the forefront and it just doesn't let you go.

Little Fool brings a touch of Blues and Funk to the table and the Lead Guitar in a Rockabilly song is unbelievable! Bring the speed up for some toe tapping on the dance floor, I've Been Livin' tugs at you so that you can't set still. Getting back to traditional Country describes You Get What You Deserve and You Can't Please Everyone.

Reminiscent of the 60's All Dressed Up is another fast dance song that makes ya wanna hit the floor! Wonderfully and Musically orchestrated beautifully is Can't Wait To Get Back Home which mixes a rich blend of Country with a twist of today's Rock sound.

Now for some teasing Rock, Let's Make Love does just that...teases you! Give A Little Love, a ballad, mixes great harmonies with the richness of Terry Lee Bolton's Vocals.

Having toured Canada and the U.S., Terry Lee Bolton has plans to come back and hit the San Antonio and Texas Scene. Great Vocals and One Hell Of A Guitarist, Terry Lee Bolton promises to give the fans what they yearn for.

Story by Jeff Novak/Staff Writer
Michigan Community News Journal

Mix one part Blues with one part Pop, add a little Rhythm and Blues, top it off with a generous helping of Southern Rock, toss it in a blender powered by Big Guitars, Beefy Drums and Rocket Fuel, hit purée and watch the sparks fly. Garnish the smoothly-blended concoction with a dash of Gospel and you get a Fiery-Red-Clad Terry Lee Bolton.

The Michigan-Grown Singer, Songwriter, Drummer, Guitarist and Producer grew up in Taylor where he started to play music at an early age, moved to Canton Township in the mid 90s and now resides in the at the center of the Universe for all things Country and Southern Rock: Nashville, Tn, where he’s enjoying a growing solo career.

He has a new record, “American Man” due out early next year, which will be followed by two dvds scheduled for later next year.

Bolton , who classifies his music as Motley Crew meets ZZ Top with a little Southern Rock thrown in, started rocking out when he was just 3 years old.

At that early age he said he constructed homemade drums that consisted of bottle caps sandwiched between two paper plates.

His father saw this and thought he might have a natural on his hands.

“I think my father realized that I was onto something and bought me my first cardboard drum set,” he said. “I had that thing tore up in about two weeks. after that, he decided to buy me a full drum set. it was christmas time and i had just turned 4.”

In fourth grade, the drumming phenom decided not to march to the beat of his own drum anymore and wanted to join the seventh-grade junior high school band. It was something the school said he wouldn’t be able to do at such a young age, but he tried out anyway. He ended up winning first chair by learning a complex drum rhythm that none of the seventh graders could master, he said.

By the age of 11 he continued in the school band and started writing on his own. His recognition as a drummer grew and 16 and 17-year-old high school kids started asking him to jam with their bands, he said. from there he played at high school parties and dances with a curfew of 11 pm .

“My parents gave me the curfew to keep me out of trouble,” he said, “but I would get into trouble anyway because I never made it home by 11.”

Whether or not he made it by curfew, his career continued to mature.

At 14, he formed a band called nija, a name created from a mix of initials from the name of his father’s sign company, Jan Signs Inc, located on Cogswell Road near Van Born in Wayne . The store, along with Jansco Records, a record label later created by Bolton and his father, were named after his mother, Janice, who succumbed to cancer about 10 years ago.

Nija’s popularity took off.

“We played every school dance at every school in the state,” Bolton proclaimed. “We did a lot of Kiss covers; we were the number-one band on all the lists for every town.”

Nija would also sell out the Trenton Theater on Biddle for two and three nights at 200-300 people a show, he said. But after high school he wanted a change. So where do up-and-coming musicians go for inspiration? Bolton , while lounging in the comfort of the golden arches with a friend, decided the band name needed to change. He wanted something that rolled off the tongue and stayed in people’s minds, he said. While looking at the trashcan in the Mcdonald’s restaurant he decided on Push.

Bolton had full support from band mates and family members, especially his father, Jim, who was the manager for both bands.

“He didn’t do the work for me,” Bolton said. “He made it possible for me to do it. When I talk about the support my father has given me, I get a lump in my throat. He was a great businessman for me. You have to be able to make good decisions and he did.”

The Push Band quickly grew in popularity and in 1984 Pushed out a nine-song lp, Push ‘Til It Hurtz, on his Jansco label. Push also hit the road on a 300-date year tour in the U.S. and Canada where they opened for such Rock Legends as Joe Perry, Aldo Nova, Autograph and Ratt and played for no less than 800 people up to 10,000 per show, he said.

A year later, when the tour wound down, so did the band. Like a clichéd VH-1 Behind The Music, drug and alcohol problems dragged push down.

“I tried to straighten the group out to do a new record but it didn’t work out,” Bolton said. “I don’t think we would have lasted more than a couple of years the way we were going...

Good songs to pick up your mood
Hey Baby is my favorite song on this cd. Listen to it while you work and you will catch yourself whistling and tapping your foot to the beat.

Malanna Monroe

"AMERICAN MAN" HERE HE COMES.
Wow! What a great cd. No wonder it's a walmart and best buy, now too. I can't even pick a favorite because I like them all. If I had to choose, I love "Hey Baby" it rocks me up to heaven and down to Tennessee! "Big Ol' Train" and "Down The Highway" is good cruising music. "I believe in God" is also great. I love how Terry makes fun of Britney Spears.

"Terry Hits Back Hard"
This Cd "American Man" hits back so hard that even I had to shake off the surprise and pick myself back up for another round of Terry Lee Bolton. "Don't Let The Hat Fool Ya!" S.S.

Randy Gentry

Awesome
Really impressive music and production. Songs are ones that everyone is bound to like, great guitar work and vocals. Get this CD, sit back and be thoroughly entertained. No doubt you will be hearing more from him very soon on a much larger scale

Michaelosophy

Fantastic blend of styles creates a unique explosion of solid music
A great combination of songs featuring superb artists.
This CD will amaze, as you hear the depth of emotion being told in song. At other times, you will find it impossible to sit still as the beat drives you to get up and move!
