Tera Lynne Fister~ Q&A!!!

1. Hello Tera Lynne, can you tell me a little bit about yourself before you became a country musician? Heck ya! I’ve always made music but before I was a full time musician. I worked at Dave Sinclair Ford in St. Louis, Missouri. I worked in the aftermarket department. I really enjoyed my time there with my Dave Sinclair family. I also worked at my local music store, Tower Music, all throughout high-school in Fenton MO where I am from. I actually had to get a work permit because I wanted to work there so badly, but I was too young! I took all my lessons growing up there as well…piano, guitar, drums, vocal, etc. Outside of work I always loved the outdoors. I was always on four wheelers going down to the river banks with friends or on horses with my mom. Lots of soccer was played. I loved going to concerts. I was a wild child in the best sense. I had a wonderful time growing up in MO. I moved to Nashville right after I turned 21, so I’ve been doing music full time basically my entire adult life.
2. What made you want a career in country music? It is not really a “want,” it’s who I am. If nobody ever heard my music it would still be my peace of mind. My therapist. My Friday night track. My solace. Music is truly ingrained in me to my very core. I never really had a drive for anything else. I’ve just always known that this is what I am here to do. No questions asked. The fact that it pays my bills is just a blessing.  3. What is the background story behind your latest single “Hell Raiser?” “Hell Raiser” was written at a time in my life where I was single and happy to be! Then, as they do, along came this guy, trying to get all up in my business, and I was not sure I was ready for it. So my immediate reaction was to tell him flaws thinking it would deter him. I think it only gave him more fuel to the fire. He pursued and pursued and pursued with every curve ball I threw at him. I am happy to state I am actually still with that gentleman. His name is Tommy and we are going on three years.  4. Is there anything else new coming up with your music in 2020? I know you have more music scheduled to be released. Yes! More music to come, more shows to play, more videos to release, more fans to shake hands and sing to! This train is rolling with hot coal! 
5. What are some of your favorite venues or events to play at?I am absolutely stoked to play in Switzerland this coming August. I will be playing at a ten day festival called BadenfHart. Festivals are my absolute favorite.  
6. How would you describe your music in 3 to 5 words? Sassy. Honest. Raw.
7. What is your recording process like when creating new tunes? It usually starts with a poem if I am writing by myself, which usually sprouts from a single phrase or line that I have been mulling over in my brain for a couple days. After the poem is written, I pick up the guitar and see where my hands take me. I close my eyes and just fumble around until I find something in stride that seems to speak to the words and service what they are trying to convey.  Once that is sorted, the words rearranged to match the melody and vice versa. Then it’s onto the studio to make the magic if the songs a keeper (which not all are, some are just therapy on a page that needed to come out).  8. What is one of your favorite quotes? The definition of hell: On your last day on earth, the person you became will meet the person you could have become.  9. Is there anything else you would like to share? Fall in love with everything and be grateful for it all. I’d be especially grateful if you joined my journey on social media! Follow me @iamfister
