Teri Roiger

Teri Roiger has been making music all her life (since age 5!) and over the years her music has taken many exciting twists and turns. Teri is a jazz vocalist, but also plays piano, composes music and writes lyrics. She has been sharing her knowledge and inspiration with her many students at SUNY New Paltz for several years. The depth of her experiences and love of jazz is apparent when she brings all of her talents to a live performance, the recording studio, and in her compositions.

In September 2012 Teri released her third CD as a bandleader called DEAR ABBEY: THE MUSIC OF ABBEY LINCOLN, a collection of songs written by Abbey Lincoln, on Inner Circle Music. The music is heartfelt, exciting, swingin’, nourishing, traditional, yet modern, and John’s arrangements fit the timbre and feeling of Teri’s voice perfectly. Frank Kimbrough is on piano, John Menegon on bass, and Steve Williams on drums (of Shirley Horn fame)!
