Nova Scotian funeral director-turned-songwriter and current Canadian Folk Music Contemporary Singer of the Year nominee Terra Spencer discovered her passion for crafting songs while touring with country artist Ryan Cook, after being recruited as a backup singer while scooping ice cream at a music festival. Since making her solo debut in 2018, she has charmed audiences in the Maritimes, Ontario, the UK, and Europe with deft fingerstyle guitar, gospel piano, butterscotch voice, and easy onstage conversation, making you feel knee-to-knee with her even in a room of 500.

Her knack for telling intimate stories with heart, humour, and 70s wood-panelled warmth has caught the attention of Canadian musical mentors like David Francey and Ron Sexsmith, and she has become a sought-after studio musician, co-writer, producer, and workshop facilitator.
