  • Terrence Brewer (2007)
    Terrence Brewer started on woodwinds in his native Oklahoma City, and started guitar in high school in California, where he's lived since he was nine years old. Jazz guitar came along when he was a woodwind major in college. Still only in his early 30s, Terrence has a book of over 100 compositions under his belt.



    He released two CDs of those compositions in 2006, volumes 1 and 2 of "The Calling", and was the recipient of the "Artist of the Year" award by Oakland Chamber of Commerce for the same year.
