CANADIAN TOUR DATES BEGIN OCTOBER 30
SAM WEBER SIGNS TO SONIC UNYON FOR UPCOMING LP
A lot has happened for Terra Lightfoot in the past two years - a four-continent cascade of high-energy concerts across the United States, Canada, Japan, Australia and the United Kingdom; a triumphant performance at Toronto’s Massey Hall; a winter tour of the US midwest and Western Canada; a hometown double-header with a classical string ensemble; a buzzed-about weekend in the spotlight at the JUNO Awards; six weeks supporting The Posies on US dates; a Toronto date supporting of Willie Nelson; producing and performing in a new all-female tour property, The Longest Road Show; the list goes on. And on. And on.
With her critically acclaimed third album New Mistakes (Sonic Unyon Records), soulful rocker Terra Lightfoot has been a non-stop touring machine, racking up hundreds of dates on the van odometer — and JUNO Award and Polaris Music Prize nominations to boot.
The road that began in the fall of 2017 stretches on deep into the fall of 2019, with the latest announcement being a two-week run of Western Canadian dates supported by singer-songwriter, and newly announced Sonic Unyon labelmate, Sam Weber. Tickets for these shows will go on sale this Thursday, September 5 at 10am local time. Full tour dates follow below.
Sam Weber is a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist in the vein of Jackson Browne, The Band, The Wood Brothers, and Gillian Welch. Years spent refining songs at home in North Saanich, BC and working in studios in Los Angeles, CA have honed Weber’s craft to a fine point. His live show pairs heartfelt songwriting with world-class musicianship and three-part harmony.
About the tour, Weber says “on October 30th we’re setting out across the great Canadian wilds with my good friend Terra Lightfoot. She and her band inspire both young and old. They spent the summer winning hearts all across North America. We can’t wait to link up with them and our Sonic Unyon family for a special run of shows this fall. We have a lot to celebrate. See you out there!"
Weber’s recent EP, New Agile Freedom, which earned substantial buzz, serves as a preview for his anticipated new album Everything Comes True. Featuring a superb slate of songs and a heavyweight roster of West Coast players, the album arrives October 25, 2019, on Sonic Unyon Records. Watch for more news on the upcoming LP to be announced shortly

PRAISE FOR TERRA LIGHTFOOT
"Canada’s Terra Lightfoot has a huge voice and a big and gutsy guitar tone to match. The powerful double-barreled musical attack makes her latest album simultaneously alluring and exciting. It’s packed with dynamics and moods, and it traverses styles from southern and classic rock to ambient to blues to echoes of Marc Bolan and T. Rex." – Guitar Player
"If you haven't seen Terra Lightfoot perform live, then do yerself a favour and get a ticket next time she's in town. Lightfoot is the total package: she can write a hooky tune, rip through a blistering guitar solo and sing the hell out of any song she likes" – CBC Music
“Ms. Lightfoot’s voice is as dominant as ever, straddling Memphis soul and urban blues with ease, and boy… can she write a song” - No Depression
“She could be your new rock ‘n’ roll hero. Drawing from rock, soul & blues, Terra Lightfoot is a monster talent that will be gracing the world’s largest festival stages in no time” - PopMatters
PRAISE FOR SAM WEBER
“I think the song of the year is “Ex-Lover” by Sam Weber. The guy’s a hell of a songwriter, great musician, great guitarist… he’s going to do big things” – Afie Jurvanen, Bahamas
“[Weber] is an expert tunesmith, brimming with addictive, adventurous and confident pieces. Infused with deep wit and wisdom, Weber’s output is truly impressive. His guitar work is also killer, full of nuance, soul and a truly unique voice.… We’ll be hearing a lot more from Weber in the coming years and, more than likely, decades” – Guitar Player
“One of Canada’s most powerful young songwriters, with hefty guitar chops to boot” - FYI Music News
“Some guys can sing. Some guys can play guitar. Some guys can write songs. Some guys know their way around the recording studio. Then there are guys like Sam Weber. [He] can do it all” – Tinnitist
“Channels the raw simplicity of early John Hiatt and Bruce Springsteen, while maintaining the gentle emotive grip of acts like Bon Iver” – Arts Victoria
