THE BARN EXPERIENCE
to take a moment to say thank you for having your show and sharing your
talent and life with us--it was one of the most beautiful and emotional
things I have experienced in my life. It was totally by chance that I
heard about you and your barn shows and I think it's funny the way
things like this turn out. Thank you again for sharing such a beautiful
and wonderful thing with everyone in such a genuine way--you have no
idea how much it means to experience something so intimate and
beautiful.. keep doing the shows!!! Love to you and your family.
Iwas greeted by a nymph brandishing a fairy wand in the dark crisp nightair, and presented with a magic token upon entering a mystical
location. The room was warm and lit with candle light. Amongst the quietchatter of happy people there was a mood of loving, laughter. Soulmedicine. Spirits flocking to this vortex of creation. I was laying on ahuge
floor pillow with about 8 people all intertwined and transformed into
timeless moments. A lot of space, silence, breathing, then explosions
of music that dripped down the walls. I loved being "inside" the music
with Jennifer and Glen, sharing their gifts only a few feet away. A one
of a kind night that can't be expressed into words. I even saw a polar
bear as I was leaving. Thank you.
Incredibleperformance at "The Barn" last night! Seeing Jenniferperform
live was amazing and so worth the trip from Colorado! Would definitely
recommend to anyone who has not yet been and will belooking forward to the next album!
out your music since it was placed on CD Baby a few years ago and I
really think what you're doing with the your Music, Web Sites and
E-mails is greater that any pop artist / record labelscould ever accomplish. Ican only say your music feels true and that's why people like me followand listen to what really matters, pure soul, inspiration and heart.Thanks from James in Canada
lovely concert you shared last evening. So incredibly intimate and
warm. Your beautiful voice and the comforting scent of spiced cider
wafted up to the loft where I sat with open ears and eyes and soul. The
tears kept flowing. Thank you.
Last night was amazing on so many levels! Your site alone was worth the
journey! Watching your sweet indigo children play was a gift,mine
Kaitlyn is 8, not knowing the special song you wrote for her the day
she was born, I asked your daughter the climber of the two, if indeed
they allowed monkeys in the barn she ran away saying.. silly. The music
was thought intense and riveting and you sum it up best below, I have
always felt raw and exposed in this world. This morning Iam in the Sycamore canyon ready for a long walk before I continue this day. THANK YOU for the gifts you are! Love, Tobias
Ahhh! What a delightful session! You are such a creative woman!
fantastic..... your voice sounds so pure and more exciting than ever!!... phenomenal.....
again, every moment was enjoyed and your personal energy is so
touching. The moment you start to sing seems to always bring tears to myeyes, no matter the song. It was so wonderful to have my son experiencesomethingso
special, thank you again for letting him come. I am very much looking
forward to the next show in December. Kindest Regards!
Your musicis todie
for. I can't wait to see you on the 5th. I am bringing a dear friend of
mine. It's part of her birthday present. Turning her onto you I think
will be the best gift of all.
cant wait to experience this:)
Jennifer! I wanted to write a belated thank you for your beautiful magical
barn concert a few weeks ago! My friend was a newbie really loved your
music! I hadn't had the pleasure of seeing you in way too long as always
your beautiful music presence moved me, carrying me out of myself &
into the ambiance of feeling that you create!
Love to you & your family & Happy Holidays :) can't wait to see you again, I'll be looking for your next show
Last night's show was magical and healing....thank you for the giving.
beautiful voice, beautiful music, very original style.
:) Ah, my soul connected friend...
Last night was a very special time for me.....
The presence you bring with your music transforms the audience from
listeners into truly experiencing the story you're painting. Your
rendition of "Streets of Laredo" caused an overflow of emotions. My
mother used to sing that to me......
I cannot wait any longer....but I will...of course....all the best for
you and for your music....best regards to the musicians Love, Ingo
would love to hear you sing Streets of Laredo if you can manage to get
through this haunting melody. The song always reminded me of my father
but lately I've been hearing it when I think of Pat. It always makes me cry to hear you sing this and somehow I think a few tears mightbe a good thing. Do you savvy dear Jennifer?
Would love to hear cruel and junk draw tomorrow night at the barn
to write this a few days ago..but the words just kept staying
stagnant, because how does one give justice to a spirit as big as Pat's
in just a few slew of words? I have known Pat for 16 years. As a person
he lived his life like any day could be his last. He had a calmness andcontentness
about him that just radiated outwards. He was such an incredible
musician. This world was more because he was in it. I have never heard
Pat play a melody that didn't move me or blow me away. I feel so
grateful for knowing him and even more grateful to have witnessed his
beauty for the last time at Jen's concert. What an amazing world we
live in! Pat knew what it meant to really be living on this planet! I
challenge you all to live your life this way...things come and go in
nature daily...life moves in and out of this delicate space we call
earth. AWAKEN! be here, feel the moments...revel in the beauty that is
this life...this is a gift! I love you Pat! good times!
Aweek or so after your beautiful concert and the experience still
resonates. It is such an honor to get to witness the baring of your
soul- with your two little girls watching with undivided attention, the
experience imprinting deep in their bones. Your show - the setting the
mood the love the talent - such a wonderful gift to share with us -
thank you. And Pat's opening was all part of that special experience -
feeling very fortunate to have witnessed the two of you glowing in your
element that night.
Brief moments in life last forever in our memories... Pat Milliken, you will be missed. Your music said it all..."good times."
now, the night of the barn concert. As usual, your creativity and
expression astounds me. One line that is sticking with me... and correct
me if it's not the line, but at the end of the dot song... is it "all
by my love" It was all so real and beautiful, just like you and
the family and the space is.
cancelled my show for Saturday, March 13th. I have a severe NO VOICE
due to sickness. The concert has been rescheduled for Saturday, March
those who show up by accident (because you didn't get my notice in
time) you will be invited in for a beautiful glass of wine and a listen
to one of the tracks off my next record in the control room. Please
forgive my cancellation and deeply hope to have this experience with you
on March 27th. Love!!! Jennifer
Is that Arabic or witches scrall or just made to weed out curious local
fan/ music journalists like me?? Please save space for two.
Hi, There should be 6 of us tomorrow night. Can't wait. Lynda
so so so excited for next Sat. It is like a breath of fresh air...I never want it to end, I wish it went till midnight:)
Can't wait to meet you in the Netherlands! Hopefully we'll find a barn
just as beautifull as yours where you can play and move us.
I always enjoy your music- thanks for bringing such wonderful sounds to us!
Missingyour music this morning! Just hanging out on the barn page listening toone
of my favorite songs:) You're music always makes things better for
me....Even if that just means making me actually feel anything
Thesong is SO beautiful - I have never heard it. Your children are so
beautiful. You, my dearest Jen, are SO BEAUTIFUL! I miss you and my heart aches about it today. Landon's beautiful, too. :)
I love you.
Sound" is such a really great song. It again moved me to...o.k., I love
your voice forever! And Phoebe looks beautiful, especially her hair.
She`s grown so very tall since I saw her in Leiden. Hope to see and hear
you next year....
One time in Bali (in the old days) I went to a village and was invited
to be with them as they sang and danced. It was beautiful and I was a
grateful and as humble guest delighting in their wonderful open generous
spirits. Later on as I crossed the island, I passed a truck with people
- the entire village packed in the back being taken as it turned out,
to a resort. I turned and they were gone. That night, I unknowingly
followed the music as it drifted down the beach and through the coconut
groves past a million fireflys dancing in the fields. As I approached
out of the dark, I saw a stage with tables, dining guests waiting for
their entertainment with passive indifference. The village always comes
along even if there are only 4-5 dancers or musicians. I sat next to a
tree in the distance and watched the same people I had shared time with
earlier performing on demand. I wondered if the same joy was there? As
the villagers recognized me, they came and sat with me and we enjoyed
the dancers andmusicians. I reflect often about those two
experiences both seemingly from the outside to be the same but yet so
vastly different like the grand canyon, worlds apart. I am not sure what
it is in your comment that prompted this but in all the years I have
known you, this has been the consistant challange and source of your
finest times with through your music and the source of some of your
finest music. Thank you for letting us listen to you as your lyrics
guide us into remembering many of the important things that we forgot.
Thank you..poet, musician for reminding us about beauty, turning off
the television and so many other things that are a reminder to nurture
our humanity. Thank you for creating and sharing your music and yourself
just attended the most amazing concert. Nestled in a setting somewhere
off the 154, and out of cellphone range is a romantic, fairy tale like
venue for a concert know as The Barn. As we follow the winding road,
with mysterious directions, such as \"find the trampoline on the left,we
find ourselves possibly in the enchanted forest replete with elf like
bare-footed children running around. Combined with the
technological sophistication of an urban/urbane setting such as New
York, is a bohemian, magical, surreal, earthy, intimate, cozy, setting
with sheepskin rugs, bean bags, and couches. The baby grand stands
dignified amidst a room of dimmed multi-colored lights that cast a red
and amber glow over the relaxed crowd. The opium here however is the
haunting, ethereal, sounds that Jennifer Terran pours out from her heartinto
the center of the crowd. Jennifer sings her life, and we feel her pour
into us. The cello's broody tones take us lower into ourselves,
reorganizes our molecular structure till we are open to the moment, to
the music, to ourselves. The music has entranced us, shifted us, opened
us wider for a peek, into being, into experience.
it's hard to put together words that reflect such an amazing
experience, but I will do my best:) I've never had a relationship with
God. I wasn't raised with any particular religion, rather many really,
giving me the chance to choose my path all on my own accord. It's not
often that I think about God, but what I do know is I have been part of
the music you make for 16 years and when you sing.....I feel
connected....It moves me to this level I have really never felt before
from anything else. Your voice immediately calms me. I wonder
sometimes when I go home from your shows if everyone who attends knows
just how talented you are. I told my husband last night that he just
saw one of the most talented musicians he will probably ever see in his
lifetime..I wanted to make sure he knew:) Sometimes you play a melody
and I am in love with it instantly, like full moon, the on the barn
page, or my all time favorite, the one that someone asked the name of itlast night and you said it was something about awomb....:)
then there are other ones...ones that take more time to adjust
too...some of the newer songs you played last night.....at first i'm not
sure how I like the notes mixed together...but then...I begin to put it
together and you never disappoint! I love knowing that I can depend on
your music for that..you are so amazing at finding beauty in the
unexpected...in life and music. I love how you take the chances you
do..I love how you can make two white keys side my side sound beautiful.
You give people this rare, rare opportunity to experience music that
breaks rules....and you do it with such an amazing grace and
tenderness....I'm not sure howmanybirthdays I have spent
with you at home concerts, but it is always the best night I can
imagine! Last night I was so happy to be there! Thank you for the best
birthday gift I could have had...xoxoxxoxoxo -me
you so much for being part of last nights concert at THE BARN. I'm very
amazed that in this existence I get to have these kinds of
experiences... and they couldn't be had without you being witness. Musicseems
to be half of what it is without the ears to absorb it, reflect it. You
give me so much and you shape what gets created just by showing up and
listening. Do you know this?At
the moment and since the wee hours of the morning began, I've been
feeling very raw and split open... (like.... 'oh shit!.. what have I
done?!' )... it's uncomfortable, slightly frightening after exposing
myself so explicitly through the music....But you know.... I take this
as a good sign and it tells me I'm doing just what I need to do. Shallwe
cave in and run away every time we feel vulnerable? No way!!! If
everyone hid and didn't put their asses on the line, it would be a very
dark and boringworld.So
that's it for now. You can respond to this post below if you wish.
Let's expose ourselves to the light for all to see. Shine on good
people! Love to you! Jennifer
Last night was amazing. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful voice with us.
you are amazing!
wow. i love love you.
Iremember years ago sitting for hours listening to you play at borders
bookstore. I sat transfixed by your music and now you continue toshare
your music with us in such a beautiful way at the barn. You so deserve
the life you have. I am so glad you didn't sell out to the industry. So
looking forward to seeing you all and delighting in your music. It feels
like waking up Christmas morning when I was a child.Thank you.
Jennifer, You were epically cool!!!! Thank you for such a "time"
there..............thank you for for playing "Loosing glue"...I starting
to cry..........I hardly could hold my emotions in........like, right
now I'm starting to tear..........your voice and piano.......and,
memories.........................there's the word- memories of
life..........ah, there I go again, tearing....... We'll be talking
Jennifer, You were magic! Starlight and sparkle! Thank you for openning up your life, home and heart to us...namaste
It was such a special evening. I love Jennifer's music but the
experience of being present for the music was quite moving. My life is
quite hectic and it is easy to get caught up in the momentum of life's
details. The time I spent that evening at the Barn felt magical and
awakened my spirit from its slumber. It is hard to put into words. You
have to experience it.

"THE MUSICIAN" vinyl release sometime soonish! Please go
below to be updated by email. It's best that way!! Oceans of gratitude! JT ______________________________________________________________________ ABOUT THE BARN: The Barn is my personal recording studio and a barefoot concert hall devoted to the sum of us. WELCOME!!
have been doing home shows in every dwelling, sleeping, dreaming place I've lived with audience on bed, on living room floor, in tight hallways, pressed against piano, under piano... a soulful thing and well suited for the raw intensity of the music and the playfulness of it all.
is the latest manifestation of this tradition, specifically built and designed with great
care and love for the shared experience.
One of my favorite things about concerts at the barn, is the unique collaboration that unfolds. The direct energy of the people, the rustling of trees in the
wind, the occasional crackle of the fireplace, the crickets! And with no stage, is there really any separation between those who listen and those who sound?
I also love how the senses pick up more reality in a beautiful acoustic room like this. To get to hear and feel the vibrations of the overtones of the piano, the breath of the singer, the
bow hitting the strings of it's cello.... To be insidethe music in these ways is special and rarely experienced in most concert settings, you know?
I realize that many of you reading this are not near Santa Barbara, California so this page will provide some impressions of the Barn experience but nay, will not take the place of it. Still, I hope you will enjoy your visit here in the box. (Hey, let's try something. See if you can look away from your computer and direct your gaze out a window. Locate something green and living and say "ahhhhhhh").
With love! Jennifer T.
