ALBUMS

Chasing Rabbits

Terra Spencer

In cart Not available Out of stock

Winner of the 2021 Music NS Award for Folk Recording of the Year, Chasing Rabbits is the soundtrack to a snowy car ride home after Christmas shopping at Sears when you were a kid. Terra's eagerly-anticipated second album is collection of wintery songs about snowbird romance, leaving and longing, family ties, home life and wildlife. Her butterscotch voice melts into sparkling piano, rich harmonies from The Bombadils, and cinematic strings from Bela String Quartet, recorded in Halifax at Sonic Temple Recording Studio with some of the city's finest players.

Terra gratefully acknowledges the support of Music Nova Scotia and the Province of Nova Scotia.

Other People's Lives

Terra Spencer

In cart Not available Out of stock

Other People's Lives, Terra's debut album of relationships held together with nylon strings and Scotch tape, was co-produced with Jake Smith in Windsor, NS. "Terra Spencer is very clearly a storyteller. Amidst small town stories and mills that produce more than just cotton, Spencer has woven a world of scandal and gossip, tempered by stoicism and classical guitar. Other People’s Lives provides such a rich tapestry of characters and stories we’re left wondering how much of herself Spencer has put in there." Alex Cook, The East Magazine

C$150.00

I am bringing my Words & Noise workshops to the comfort of our own homes! Learning how to tell a story through a song has been one of the greatest gifts in my life. Songs are a beautiful way to explore and express our own experiences and the stories we collect along the way. In these exclusive one-on-one online sessions, I will meet you - or the recipient of your gift - where you are at, both in your song and in your space.

This exclusive online workshop includes: - An introductory email exchange, where I get to know you and your project; - A one-hour consultation via Zoom, Facebook, Instagram, or online platform of your choice, where we dig into the nuts and bolts and swap tricks and techniques to work on; - A follow-up email summarizing our session's ideas and progress with recordings of musical samples and ideas, - A wrap up session, where we revisit the song to see how it has progressed, what work remains, and talk about how to share it live, online, or in the studio!

After you've completed your purchase, I'll send an email with next steps to get the ball rolling!

Feedback from other Words & Noise participants:

"Terra is wonderful and covered many important aspects of the song writing process. She has a talent for making everyone feel comfortable. It was enjoyable and felt safe. "

"It was really very useful and encouraging for me - I have been at various points a 'blocked writer' or someone who feels on the outside of the music community (low confidence at times). This group helped me to believe in myself, to make connections and to 'own' my status as a songwriter at precisely the stage I am now. Practically, I wrote more during this course - it really helped to have the accountability, challenge and validation of the group."

"I enjoyed it so much I want more!!"
