TERRA LIGHTFOOT - SUNDAY 29th APRIL from 12noon at The Quarterdeck Narooma
“If you haven’t seen Terra Lightfoot perform live, then do yerself a favour and get a ticket next time she’s in town. Lightfoot is the total package: she can write a hooky tune, rip through a blistering guitar solo and sing the hell out of any song she likes” – CBC Music
“Drawing from rock, soul and blues, [Terra Lightfoot] is a monster talent that will be gracing the world’s largest festival stages in no time.” – PopMatters
Terra Lightfoot is a Canadian musician and singer-songwriter from Hamilton, Ontario who has released two albums with the independent music label Sonic Unyon Recording Company.
She performs in a folk and roots rock style known for bold vocals and electric guitar riffs.
In the early 2010s Lightfoot was a member of the Dinner Belles, a group of country-folk performers from Hamilton. She performed as a guitarist and vocalist for the group's first and only studio album in 2014.
With the band's indie music label, Sonic Unyon, she worked on her second solo album Every Time My Mind Runs Wild concurrent with the Dinner Belles album The River And The Willow, both released in 2014.
Her first solo album, self-titled and released in 2011, was described as "subdued", with compositions characteristic of a modern folk singer-songwriter.
Her second solo album was in collaboration with indie rockers Gus van Go, Werner F, and Liam O'Neil, who are known for their performances with the group The Stills. The album's producers, van Go and F, were credited with bringing a more catchy, hook-heavy, power pop style.
Lightfoot has a multi-octave mezzo-soprano singing voice that has been compared to that of Joan Jett and Dusty Springfield.
Her electric guitar style has been described as similar to John Fogerty and Van Morrison. The songs for which Lightfoot is best known are described as bluesy-rock power ballads.
March 2018 Lightfoot was featured in Guitar Player Magazine along with her SG 'Veronica'.
