"A clever songwriter, social satirist and bittersweet romantic somewhere between Jake Thackray and Jacques Brel." The Independent
"Had the room in stitches…The secret love child of Richard Digance and Victoria Wood, Blacker seems happiest when puncturing pomposity and self-delusion." Dylan Hearn
"Blacker's songs confirm him as a man for tricksy rhymes and a pleasingly mournful middle-aged scepticism." The Times
If Tom Lehrer were to delve into the internet or Noel Coward were to wander into a folk club, the result would be a little like the songs of Terence Blacker. With subjects ranging from Twitter to upper-class twits, from discontented expats to the secrets of suburbia, Blacker is a twisted troubadour who brings to life the stories and characters of our world with a heartfelt comic twist.
Well-known as an author and columnist, Blacker has played at festivals across the country, has presented a Radio 4 documentary series on politically incorrect music and once sang on The World At One. His one-man show My Village and Other Aliens was part of the 2013 Edinburgh Fringe.
