Throwback Thursday: QUSIC: Terez

Episode sponsored by Susan Dolan – Real Estate Professional in Kelowna.

Terez (she/her/hers) may be making her original debut releases as a solo artist, but this young pop singer is anything but new to the music scene. Already with a fan base of over 100K followers, collaborating with influencers like Nicole Arbour, and having performed across North America, sharing stages with heavy hitters such as Keith Urban, Terez is making a mark on her own accord with the release of original music.

With her passion originating from songwriting, Terez uses her music as a platform to discuss topics such as self-love, mental health, and acceptance. Everyone has secrets and unflattering truths; Terez aims to showcase her truth to make fans feel more accepting of their own. Her deeply vulnerable, and personal lyrics aim to make listeners feel related to and understood, while her pop melodies and dynamic vocals make you want to dance. Terez has more interest in one’s humanity rather than their gender, and looks forward to telling her musical story on QUSIC.
