With her latest album New Mistakes (Sonic Unyon Records), acclaimed Canadian rocker 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 - one that has won praise from No Depression, Pop Matters, CBC Music, Guitar Player, Twangville, and The Boot. Since the album's release, Lightfoot has embarked on a four-continent tour that saw her play high-energy concerts at festivals, clubs and theatres across the United States, Canada, Japan, Australia and the United Kingdom, culminating in a triumphant performance at Toronto's historic Massey Hall. A relentless live performer, Lightfoot has been awarded CIMA Road Gold status (in recognition of 25K concert tickets sold in a 12-month period), and New Mistakes has been nominated for Adult Alternative Album of the Year at the 2018 JUNO Awards (Canada's equivalent of the Grammys); its lead single "Paradise" earned a 2018 JUNO nomination for Engineer of the Year.
