Transcript Julie Homi (I) and Teresa Trull Gospel, blues and a mean guitar BY POKEY ANDERSON You don't find a lot of folks in the music industry whose biography sheet includes: "Worked as a dump truck driver to support herself while gaining experience in music." You won't find a lot of dynamic gospel and blues singers with green eyes and red hair. And you won't find many performers who will sing honestly and naturally about women who love other women. But then, nobody has ever accused Teresa Trull of being a run-of-the- mill. Trull learned gospel and blues while growing up in North Carolina. Her music now blends gospel, soul, traditional jazz and the blues. She recorded her first album on Olivia Records, The Ways a Woman Can Be, three years ago, at the age of 23. Since then, she has gained the accomplished piano backing of Julie Homi, and her music has reclaimed even more of the down-home energy of its Southern roots. The women of Olivia Records, the country's largest all-woman recording label, didn't "discover" Teresa Trull humming in a drugstore, but almost. Some of Trull's friends made a cassette tape of her singing, and sent it across the country to Olivia in California. The folks at Olivia liked the tape and the timing Pokey Anderson distributes women's music through Out and Out Productions. was right, and soon Trull cut her first album. Teresa Trull is committed to creating songs that speak positively about women's lives, songs that the mass media somehow "neglect." to transmit. With her versatile voice and command of various styles, she sings about her own experiences, including the women in her life . . . women as friends, family, lovers, role models. "I don't think anyone will ever be able to come to a concert of mine and not know I am a lesbian . . . But I don't want people just to relate to me for that reason ... I think my music and my politics have a lot to say to everyone," she notes. Houstonians will have their first opportunity in a year-and-a-half to share the music of Teresa Trull and Julie Homi in person, on Saturday, February 23, 8 p.m., at First Unitarian Church, 5210 Fannin. Child care, work exchange, and interpretation for the deaf will be available. Advance tickets will be available at B.D. & Daughter, The Bookstore, Wilde 'N' Stein, A Moveable Feast, and My Sisters (Galveston). Trull and Homi will be on hand to meet informally with Houston women and men at B.D. & Daughter, 520 West- heimer, on Saturday, February 23, 1:30-3 p.m. HELEN HOOKE is coming to Houston. Her solo performance will include songs on piano, electric guitar, fiddle and varied electronic instruments. Hooke combined her classical studies at the Eastham School of Music with an incurable addiction to the Beatles and the electric guitar.In 1972, she teamed with Pamela Brandt and Ann Bowen to form The Deadly Nghtshade. Their music was a fusion of country, soul, bluegrass, and rock and became well-known for its infectious and up-lifting spirit of women's strength and celebration. Rolling Stone credited Hooke with adding "power and a raw edge" to the group's material and said she played the guitar, piano, and fiddle with a "tough inventiveness." With Brandt, Hooke wrote most of the songs which appeared on their two RCA albums, The Deadly Nightshade and F. and W. (Funky and Western). From 1977-1972, the group appeared in clubs from coast to coast with Lily Tomlin, Laura Nyro, Peter Frampton and toured as opening act on Billy Joe's fall 1976 tour. She'll be appearing March 2 and 3 at 8 p.m. at Fitzgeralds in the Heights. Helen Hooke in concert.
