What makes us tick:
Music is a two way process. The TerraZetto project strives to share eclectic new music and smartly redesigned classics; and, we thrive on the buzz and excitement that comes back to us from our listeners. We are seasoned composers and performers, long past the goal of fame or money; but we’ve never let go of the thrill that comes from connecting with an audience and lifting it up.
Carrie Ingrisano is a singer– songwriter, half poet, who croons in English, French and Portuguese. She swings from Samba -Bossa style guitar into pop and reggae; and also plays electric bass. Carrie has a voice that will make you believe in love and freedom again, and she understands how to craft a fine song. She has played the festivals and listening rooms of Chicago, has recorded several CDs, and is now happy to have landed here in paradise.
