Terry Canady and Thom Schumacher
Terry Canady, singer/songwriter, was raised in Des Moines, Iowa, and his performing and recording career has spanned nearly five decades. Recording a #1 hit record, “Mama Bear,” in Nashville, Tennessee in the early 1970s was the highlight of his career and eventually led to the creation of his own record and publishing company, Saint Adrian, through which he has produced a number of records and albums, most recently a patriotic CD titled “Give Me Liberty.” He continues to accept narration, commercial and voice-over work from his home in the beautiful Paradise Valley, just a few miles north of Yellowstone National Park.
Thom Schumacher is a copywriter, ex-seminarian, singer, percussionist, talker, plays a mean penny whistle, lyricist, RE broker and, most importantly, a student of the ascended masters. He has been gifted with an exceptional family, survived 3 marathons, navigated some very potent astrology (double Pisces!) and continuously juggles a myriad of creative challenges, not the least of which is hosting The OPEN DOOR. The threads that run through the crazy quilt of his life are love of God, Life, wife, family and gratitude for all the opportunities along the way to learn and grow.
