Canada’s Terra Lightfoot has a huge voice and a big and gutsy guitar tone to match. The powerful double-barreled musical attack makes her latest album simultaneously alluring and exciting. – Guitar Player
Whether you’re talking about her as a songwriter, guitarist or vocalist, one this is indisputable: roots rocker Terra Lightfoot is a ferocious talent. Her songs tap into the raw emotion of hearts supercharged by love, loneliness and temptation. Her playing melds expert finger-picking and distorted, hook-heavy melodies. And her elemental voice commands attention and awe, whether on slow-burning soul ballads or hard-charging rock numbers.
Terra released her self-titled debut album in 2011; its critically acclaimed follow-up, 2015’s Every Time My Mind Runs Wild, marked the artist’s arrival as a striking songwriter and compelling live performer. 2017 brought two new albums; the orchestral collaboration Live In Concert and her third studio album, New Mistakes, the latter nominated for Adult Alternative Album of the Year at he 2018 JUNO Awards and long-listed for the Polaris Music Prize.
With her third studio album New Mistakes, Canada’s Terra Lightfoot has offered up something rare: the kind of genuine document that can only come from a road-tested breed of songwriter and performer. Shot through with the guitarist-vocalist’s powerful, bluesy soul, vivid lyrics and ferocious six-string virtuosity, it’s an unforgettable outing – one that has won praise from the likes of No Depression, Pop-Matters, Guitar Player, Twanville, The Boot and CBC Music.
