Powerhouse singer/songwriter Terra Lighfoot is making a real and highly-deserved breakthrough with her fiery new solo album, Every Time My Mind Runs Wild (out on Sonic Unyon). The ace production team of Gus van Go and Werner F (Monster Truck, Whitehorse, The Trews) does justice to Terra's triple threat talents, as a vocalist, writer and guitarist. Read our review of the disc here.
Lightfoot's skill as a high-energy performer is now captured on a new video clip for one of the album's key songs, "Never Will". It is directed by the Juno and MMVA Award-winner Christopher Mills, long a leading light on the Canadian music video scene (he has worked with the likes of Modest Mouse, Interpol, Broken Social Scene, Blue Rodeo, and Metric and recently was awarded a Special Prize at the Prism Awards).
His masterful quick cuts and inventive use of colour helps give the video both a retro and fresh look, in keeping with the feel of the song itself. Mills has also directed another compelling clip for "Veronica", another strong track off Every Time My Mind Runs Wild.
Lightfoot kicks off a national tour with a NXNE set at The Rivoli in Toronto on June 17. Shows will include appearances at Hillside in Guelph (July 25-26), the Pan Am Closing Ceremonies in her Hamilton hometown (July 26), at the star-studded Greenbelt Harvest Picnic in Dundas, ON (Aug. 29) and CityFolk in Ottawa (Sept. 19-20).
