“Lightfoot’s most accomplished music yet” – Pop Matters.
“Ms. Lightfoot’s voice is a dominant as ever, straddling Memphis soul and urban blues with ease” - No Depression.
Whether you’re talking about her as a songwriter, guitarist or vocalist, one thing 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 collaborationLive in Concert and her third studio album, New Mistakes—a dozen new tracks curated from almost 50 written in the months leading to the studio. With New Mistakes, Canada’s Terra Lightfoot offers 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 that distills her masterful talent to its electrifying essence.
