Terra Lightfoot is the kind of musician and songwriter who preserves her identity as an artist, while unwittingly positioning herself to be a massively appealing pop commodity. On the first single from her forthcoming LP, Every Time My Mind Runs Wild, "Never Will" is a contemporary throwback to classic rock inspired instrumentation, melded with vocal harmonies recollective of the 1950's doo-wop era.
On this particular standout track, Lightfoot layers wistful harmonies over tonic chords and middle eights, which are only further exalted by her outstanding vocal abilities.
"I wrote 'Never Will' about that ideal lover that may never materialize -- you might have feelings for someone, but sometimes you have to end it yourself before the chase begins. And you have to bask in the glory of those short moments of desire instead of pine for the future. It's about overcoming your own insecurities, being confident in yourself and knowing youre alright with or without that ideal lover, no matter how great their songs are."-- Terra Lightfoot
Lightfoot has a contagious sense of self awareness in her lyrics, which are relatable yet introspective, possessing a level of foresight and emotional maturity that fully equips her to welcome any outcome.
Check out the formulaically catchy track, "Never Will" off of her forthcoming LP Every Time My Mind Runs Wild, out August 26th via Sonic Unyon Records.
