"Life's a Song — On the Road."
Terri Hendrix W/Lloyd Maines
The City of Lewisville is hosting this event. It's a comprehensive all day workshop on songwriting, instrumentation, and the music business. This event is made possible by a grant through Texas Commission on the Arts.
Terri Hendrix and Lloyd Maines lead the 9th Annual Lewisville Grand Theater Songwriting Workshop.
Terri has run an independent record label since 1996, releasing all of her music through her own e-commerce store at her website. Her music's been used in independent films, commercials, and various other formats.
She has also conducted workshops alongside producer and Austin City Limits Hall of Fame inductee Lloyd Maines, for the past sixteen years. Together they offer an all-inclusive creative experience for everyone from the novice to the actively performing musician. An attendee can expect the brass tacks of releasing independent music in the digital age (synch, mechanical, social media, etc.) to be discussed as well as production, performance, and songwriting. Several handouts that delve into alternate tunings and rhyme schemes will also be made available to all attendees. Time is equally divided between the “The Part That Ain’t Art” (music business) and “The Part That’s Art” (creative approaches to all things songcraft and production). It’s a Q&A format in which both Hendrix and Maines engage each and every student. They encourage those that attend to bring their instruments and or their notepads and partake in what’s proven time and again to be an inspiring event for all involved.
Participation in this workshop is limited to 25 people.

About Terri Hendrix
Recognized by Acoustic Guitar magazine as one of Texas’ 20 essential contemporary singer-songwriters, Terri Hendrix has earned fans worldwide for her singular fusion of folk, pop, country, blues, and jazz, delivered with poetic grace, melodic flair, and plenty of wit and wisdom. Along the way, she’s also co-written a Grammy-winning instrumental (the Chicks’ “Lil’ Jack Slade”), and garnered such honors as a star on the South Texas Music Walk of Fame, the Art of Peace Award by Saint Mary’s University in San Antonio, the Distinguished Alumni Award at Hardin-Simmons University in Abilene, and induction into the Women’s Hall of Fame in San Marcos, Texas. Her master recordings and archives are housed at the esteemed Wittliff Collections at Texas State University. Embodying Texas’ independent spirit, this classically trained vocalist and virtuoso guitar, mandolin and harmonica player has done it entirely on her own, releasing every album since her 1996 debut on her Wilory Records label — often using a fan-financing model she developed years before crowdfunding arrived.
Terri Hendrix is part of the Texas Touring Arts Program. This program is designed to ensure that all Texans have the ability to enjoy performances by outstanding Texas-based companies and artists in their own communities. The Texas Commission on the Arts (TCA) provides grants to help with the costs of bringing in companies and artists from this roster for performances.
