Monday Muse: Terra Naomi

I'm thrilled that there are still musical artists emerging who can inspire me. My daughter, Senryu, introduced me to this young singer/songwriter whose voice is unique and haunting (Senryu describes it as "dusky") and whose lyrics are hopeful and meaningful. There are other versions of this song (one of just Terra and her guitar in a quiet room) on Youtube. She also has a myspace site if you are interested in learning more about her. Terra Naomi says of the video below, "I asked people from around the world to film themselves answering the question "what would you do/want if anything were possible?" in three words or less. "

This is fabulous, Aisling. I love artists who the to change the world for the better - and what a beautiful, clear voice! Unfortunately a quick search at Amazon UK comes up with only one 7" vinyl record, which is not available. How frustrating! I really wanted to buy her CD's. :-( Thanks for introducing Terra Naomi to me, I will definitely keep a look out for her in the future.

Lesley, I'm fairly certain she is not signed with a big label and promotes herself mainly through Youtube and her myspace page. I will keep my eyes open also to see if she sells internationally. Perhaps as she gains more acclaim (which I feel certain she will!) you will find her music available there.

How wonderful, and hopeful indeed! Thank you so much for sharing this lovely new-to-me artist!

Aisling said...

Rapunzel, You're very welcome. It isn't often I point you in the direction of a new artist. It is usually the other way around! *grin*

Grace, I'm glad you liked her. I don't know much of her work... just a few songs. I've loved what I've heard so far.

Thanks very much, Aisling! I've signed up at HMV!
