"Teri, you are the bomb!! I love your songs sooooo much. I love the wackiness and poignancy of your songs. So great to spend time with you."

Amy Saliers, The Indigo Girls


"Teri Scheinzeit is a delight. Her songs are quirky and personal, her voice is beautiful and her stage presence makes me want to give her a hug. I became a 'Teri Head' from the first time I heard her play."

Amy Kurland—Founder, Owner of the Bluebird Cafe,



"Teri's Choosing Happy CD is a charming treatise on appreciating life. Her delicate alto is a perfect vehicle for offering up reminders of things to be grateful for. The melodies are lovely and mesmerizing and her voice glides on their surface like a world-class figure skater. I never thought I’d hear a spellbinding song about doing laundry. Just brilliant."

Acoustic Live Magazine

"Teri is one of a kind. I am immediately drawn to her world of laundry rooms, big armchairs, stray cats and tasty bites. Unique is so refreshing in this world of carbon copy music"
