Terry Callier was an American soul, blues, folk and jazz guitarist, and singer songwriter born in Chicago. His debut album was recorded in 1964 but due to problems it was eventually released in 1968 as “The New Folk Sound of Terry Callier”. His soul, jazz, folk influences were prominently featured on the albums in the following years, which were released on different major labels. Callier continued to perform and tour until 1983, when he gained custody of his daughter and retired from recording music, working for the University of Chicago and obtained a degree in sociology. In the late 1980s British DJ's discovered his old recordings and the famous rare-groove/jazz label Acid Jazz released his unknown track “I Don't Want To See Myself (Without You)” in 1983.
Timepeace was recorded in 1998 after a 15 year long career break and won the United Nations's Time For Peace award for outstanding artistic achievement contributing to world peace.
