Described as The York Press as “Definitely one to watch” she obtained a place on a MA course at London’s prestigious E15 in 2011, but decided at this point that it was music she had to stand by. “Singing has always been my personal thing, the thing that made me feel like I can really do anything.”
Terri-Ann began working hard developing herself as an artist, creating a positive following on her YouTube channel of her infamous ‘Cover Wednesdays’ releasing live covers and demo’s of her original material. She released her debut single ‘Mask of Sanity’ in 2011 and following this her track ‘Smile Again’ was released early in 2012.

“The Main Stage was definitely the place for Terri-Ann Prendergast – her huge and exuberant personality couldn’t really have been held on any of the smaller ones.” Yorkshire Gig Guide
Singing songs from her new EP Intricate, she sold out of copies after the gig. The 4 track EP has been described as “Dazzling” by Yorkshire Coast Radio and “Beautifully Lyrically Honest.”
“Music has been a great source of strength for me growing up and I wanted to input that into the Intricate EP. Music is a universal language that conveys emotion everyone can understand, I love it so much and I want to share my version with the world.”
Every year is a new journey for Terri-Ann as she works endlessly devoting herself to her work, achieving higher and higher as she completes each performance, receiving excellent feedback of enjoyment and praise. She is ready to share her music with the world! Do you want to hear it?
