Willcox Guitars is pleased to announce the addition of Anthony Terrezza to our team of Advisory Artists. Terrezza’s playing has been referred to as “mesmerizing’ and his songs as “electrifying, high-vibrational, spirit-based and inspirational.” We were instantly drawn to Terrezza because of his ability to show off the advanced capabilities of our LightWave Systems Optical Pickups in our guitars and basses through his advanced playing styles. Anthony Terrezza is a ‘musician’s musician’ who follows his passion for integrity in all aspects of music. With three self produced original albums under his belt, and a fourth one coming out soon. He’s an accomplished creator, arranger, engineer, and producer, with a musical style that combines jazz, fusion, rock and R&B.
Anthony performs at concert venues around the country including the NAMM Show in Anaheim, the Coach House in San Juan Capistrano, the Jacksonville Jazz Festival, the Laguna Beach Festival of the Arts and other great venues. Born and raised in New Jersey, a young Terrezza was captivated by his father’s passion for music. His father was an accomplished and recorded vocalist and his grandfather, who was born in Italy, spent his life as a concert violinist. In the decades since moving to California, Anthony lives by the convictions of his forefathers as he continues to explore and cultivate the highest quality in songwriting, concert performance, studio sessions, engineering and producing. His history as a session player and producer enable him to bring depth and dimension to every project and performance. He has worked with Richard Elliot and Tower of Power in a VH1 music video, and developed and recorded unique guitar parts that have been heard on TV, Movies (such as Discovery Channel, NBC, ABC, TV Commercials, Radio Jingles, Theme Songs for Talk Radio shows), and Children’s Albums. On any given day, you may find him tinkering in his ‘office’ Blue Knight Studio, where he is pursuing musical perfection for himself, or for other artists; or, he might be recording or studying with legendary bassist Max Bennett, getting ready for their performance at the 88.5 FM KSBR Birthday Bash; or he might be jamming with musicians Greg Vail, Greg Adams, Bill Cantos, and Tony Moore; or performing at the Laguna Beach Festival of the Arts with vocalist Leslie Page.
KSBR Birthday Bash,
As for his style, many have compared him to Steve Lukather, Larry Carlton, Toto, Steely Dan and Pablo Cruise. His recorded songs are enhanced by performances of jazz pioneer pianist Dan Siegel; drummers Jim Blair, Tom Grignon & Ron Robertson; and Saxophonist Greg Vail, as well as some of the very best local musicians in Southern California. He recorded his three CDs, “Higher Ground”, “Return to Spirit” and “West Coast Christmas” at Blue Knight Studio. The 4th CD is underway with Terrezza writing and recording in between tours and concerts; the first song “Confunktion” is complete and available on this website as well as on CDbaby.
