BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1978
Teri DeSario (born November 27, 1951) is a singer/songwriter from Miami, Florida. DeSario worked within several music genres out of high school. She was vocalist, played recorder and harp from 1970 – 1977 with a Medieval and Renaissance music group, the Early Music Consort, headed by scholar and Pro Musica member Arnold Grayson. She began her popular career as a singer/songwriter in the folk genre and later expanded her love of folk music with her passion for jazz. After marrying horn player, arranger, and composer Bill Purse, they founded a pop-folk-jazz collaborative called Abacus. One night a long-haired man walked into the club where she was performing, claiming to be the producer of the Bee Gees; it turned out he actually was. Barry Gibb heard her demo of original music and was so inspired by DeSario’s vocals that he wrote a song for her called “Ain’t Nothing Gonna Keep Me From You” and helped her obtain a recording contract.
“Ain’t Nothing Gonna Keep Me From You” from 1978 was Teri DeSario’s first hit single, written and produced by the Bee Gees’ lead vocalist/songwriter Barry Gibb, from her first album Pleasure Train, also released in 1978. Gibb also sang backing vocals on the track.
The second single from the album “The Stuff Dreams Are Made Of” peaked at #41 on the US dance chart.
Even though the first single from her debut, Pleasure Train, made #43 on the U.S. pop charts, she hadn’t really enjoyed the recording experience and wanted a new direction. It was then that she bumped into an old school mate she had as a teen, Harry Wayne Casey (KC) of KC and the Sunshine Band. In 1980 De Sario recorded a duet with KC a cover of Barbra Mason’s “Yes I’m Ready” which became a #2pop hit in the US.
