TERRY ILOUS – Hired Gun (2021)

Hired Gun” is a compilation put together by singer TERRY ILOUS (XYZ) featuring his vocals & songwriting for other projects.
“Over the years I have been hired to sing on many albums” – says Terry – “Realizing that my fans may not be able to buy multiple CD’s for just a few songs, I have created ‘Hired Gun’, which I hope to be an ongoing series with music I have been hired to sing for artists around the world. On ‘Hired Gun’ I have picked my favorite works from three of these albums.”
Great stuff from one of the best melodic hard rock shouters out there.
