Canadian singer-songwriter Terra Lightfoot has released a video for her version on I’ll Be Home For Christmas.
Terra Lightfoot – I’ll Be Home For Christmas
“I feel comfortable delivering a song like ‘I’ll Be Home for Christmas’ because I can really live inside that gentle mood and melody, the heartfelt lyrics, that sense of fragile security. The melody and chords are stunning, but as a songwriter I also appreciate the uncertainty and underlying tension in the plot: You’re not sure if you’ll make it home, or maybe your home is long gone and you’re wishing you could go back. I don’t know if I would be able to deliver a song like ‘Joy to the World’ with quite as much conviction.” – Terra
Terra Lightfoot released her album Every Time My Mind Runs Wild in the UK on August 26th through Sonic Uniyon Records; lead single Never Will was released earlier in the year followed by tracks No Hurry and Lily’s Fair; plus 2016 brought extensive touring across the UK and Europe.
Whether you’re talking about her as a songwriter, guitarist or vocalist, one thing is indisputable: Hamilton’s Terra Lightfoot is a ferocious talent. Her songs tap into the raw emotion of hearts supercharged by love, lust, 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.
