Terry Ohms Album Release

Saturday, February 16TH


21+ / NO COVER

With special guests Taylor Hollingsworth and Results of Adults

Terry Ohms is the alter ego of Birmingham, Alabama native Wes McDonald (Vulture Whale) – or maybe it’s the other way around. After spending time in their individual musical worlds and influences, it becomes increasingly difficult to distinguish where one ends and the other begins, or where the rhythmic reach of one extends and the melodic ambitions of the other continues. And with the dissolution of Vulture Whale, it looks like Ohms has finally taken over and convinced McDonald to let him loose for a while, as a new record from Terry Ohms called “Terryfirma” will see the light of day on Jan. 18. Recorded in his basement, McDonald played all the instruments on the album, created all the artwork and handled the visual duties for the accompanying videos. “Terryfirma” was the result of time spent in a creative bubble. Where the earlier Terry Ohms records were self-contained side projects, deviations from his work with Vulture Whale, this record (and/ to a degree, “A Lot More Than Enough”) is the product of thoughtful details and a need to stretch beyond the comforts of his previous releases. “Terryfirma” is the sound of willful release and inclusivity, an ode to the unbridled creativity and tactile experiences which his history has afforded him. An arrangement has been settled upon, a meeting of personalities and impulses, and Terry Ohms couldn’t be happier.
