SoundCheck: Terrible Terrence's name reflects looking outside the box

Bailey Odom

Terrible Terrence will be on Studio Live Friday, June 14, 2024 at noon.

Terrible Terrence took their name from an ethnobotanist who often saw the world differently from most people. The band, made up of Jacob Burr, Lucas Burr, Nick Watson, and Benjamin Garay, brings this fresh outlook to their music.

Jessica Gray Balisle, a Springfield native, grew up listening to KSMU. When she's not wrangling operations and compliance issues, she co-hosts live music show Studio Live and produces arts and culture stories. Jessica plays bass in local band the Hook Knives. She and her husband Todd live with their two cats, Ellie and Jean-Ralphio, and way too many house plants.
