Quotes Of Note

"Messier is a hurricane force of music that he humbly self-describes as 'just rock n’ roll'."

"With a sound that blends americana, rock and folk that bring up similarities of Tom Petty, Messier is a hurricane force of music that he humbly self-describes as 'just rock n’ roll'. Bringing together keyboard parts, trumpet playing, and sonically charged guitar grooves that intertwine effortlessly with his lyrics, Messier masters multiple sounds and moods, from deep, intimate ballads, to switching and rocking your face off.” -

- Andrew Conroy, KUTX

“He’s a musician’s musician..."

“He’s a musician’s musician with a magnetic stage presence that can captivate a crowd of any size with his personable showmanship and arsenal of rock, jazz, Americana and funk.”

- Douglas Leach, Track Rambler

“…an expanse of talent and ideas”

-Doug Freeman, Austin Chronicle

“With music like that, they’ve got to dance!”

- John Aielli, KUTX

I haven’t been able to find the words. Like hundreds of others, I became more involved with the @recordingacademy because of Theresa Jenkins - because she nurtured me and became a mentor and friend. I discovered over time that she was one of the strongest people I had ever met. Principled, dedicated and very private. All such rare qualities, especially now-a-days as we all struggle with the various ways we live out loud, showing our best selves online for all to see. Theresa had a quiet dignity that would have served her well had she been born to royalty. “Queen T” as Yolanda says. She taught me so much, countless things, and even in her death. Should one ever have a terminal disease, she left us with another lesson: how to handle it with strength and grace. My deepest sympathies to her family and everyone that had the pleasure to know her. “There’s a bit of magic in everything, and then some loss to even things out” - Lou Reed
