The song was a commercial success since it peaked at No. 1 on the rock charts on iTunes. Terry co-wrote this tune with Todd Burman, a former member of the Australian band Juke Kartel.
Sporting a leather black jacket and black pants, Terry sang with a lot of heart, as his stage was graced in photographs. His vocals were haunting yet dynamic and his range as a vocalist and songwriter is incredible. In this performance, he emerged as a young Paul McCartney and he was able to command the stage.
His performance was well-received by the audience and all four coaches, including Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Shakira and Usher.
He released his follow-up single “In Your Eyes” on May 24 and similar to “Pictures,” it was co-written by Terry and Todd.
Presently, he is out on tour with his band, the Bonfires, which is comprised of Dave Rosser on guitar, Alex Smith on bass, Eric Bolivar on drums and they will be performing shows in Europe, one of which will be a stop in Terry’s hometown of Aberdeen, Scotland.
