Growing up in Canada, she would wander the fields near her family home, imagining she was Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey. She started taking piano lessons at age 5, and by 11 years old was writing her own songs. “I used to drive my teachers crazy because I was always writing cheesy pop songs instead of practicing scales.”
Terra knew she needed to discover a lot more about music and life. She moved from her small home-town, Kamloops, to Vancouver to study Jazz. From there Terra wrote, recorded and developed her craft. She released her first full length-album Unconventional Shining in her North Vancouver loft. She also caught the travel bug and backpacked through Mexico, Central America, Thailand, Tahiti and the U.K.
“I love travel, I love to learn about life and evolve my mind,” says Terra. She travelled to Australia in 2010 and inspired by the outback, wrote Leopardwood, an acoustic-guitar driven album. She ended up extending her travel visas over and over, fell in love and is now a mother.
Now living on Magnetic Island on the east coast of Australia, Terra is the mother of two small children and is set to release her next album in 2018.
