Terence Ryan had big dreams and left his New England home in an attempt to realize them. In October 2015, he headed for the bright lights and hopeful stardom of Los Angeles. He ended up jobless, broke and homeless.

When he was away, Ryan says, he discovered his voice — the lyrical one that comes from the stories of his friends and family back at home. He returned last fall, to a home he says is "fully recovered" and is his source of inspiration.

Here & Now's Lisa Mullins speaks to Ryan (@LVSNDterence) about leaving home and coming back, and his debut CD.
