Terence Reis biography
Terence Reis is currently best known for his role as the frontman for the Dire Straits Experience. With Dire Straits’ Chris White and Chris Whitten, accompanied by a stellar line-up of world-class musicians, the show continues to enthral audiences and accumulate exceptional reviews all around the world.
It is a journey that had an unlikely beginning… Of English, Portuguese, Welsh, Irish and Australian descent, Terence Reis grew up on the east coast of Africa in the Portuguese colony of Lourenço Marques (now called Maputo) in Mozambique. It was here that he was first exposed to music and the guitar in particular: the instrument of choice for the rhythmic, finger picking street musicians. This sound, mixing with the European rock ‘n’ roll radio stations of his youth, began a journey of musical inquiry that has taken in Blues, Folk, Rock, African, Celtic, Americana and a fascination for roots music and the storyteller. Unsurprisingly, there developed with it, a lifelong passion for songwriting.
After completing an honours degree at the University of Witwatersrand School of Dramatic Arts, Terence embarked on an award-winning career as a professional freelance actor and voice artist. It was during this period that, what had started as a hobby, began to develop into a parallel career – that of a guitarist, singer and songwriter. It has seen him playing, writing, singing for and fronting various bands before a decision to take a sabbatical led to a move to Canterbury. It was there that he formed the band Waterhorse. It proved to be a decision that would introduce him to The Straits in 2011 and the formation of the Dire Straits Experience in 2014.
Stranger things have happened. But not many…
