Halifax Presents was Live at The Carleton in our continuing live online music series as we welcomed Terra Spencer on June 18.
While juggling jobs as a funeral director near her home in Windsor, NS and as a touring musician with country artist Ryan Cook, Terra Spencer discovered a deep love of songwriting.
She weaves intimate stories of complicated relationships with compelling lyrics, fingerstyle guitar, gospel piano, quick wit, and a butterscotch voice. Steeped in the wood-panel sounds of artists like Jackson Browne and Bobbie Gentry,
Terra’s debut album Other People’s Lives was nominated for 2019 Music Nova Scotia Americana Recording of the Year. Terra is currently at work on her second album, Chasing Rabbits, which weathers the Canadian winter with wildlife encounters, long-distance romance, and longing for home.
You can find out more about Terra and her music online at terraspencer.ca, on Bandcamp and Spotify. You can also follow her on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube.
