ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Terra Grimard's second full-length release 'Leopardwood' (2013) was written on acoustic guitar in the Australian outback.

Reflecting on love and life, Leopardwood was inspired by the wide open spaces, rugged landscape and red soil of the outback. The songs were recorded in a small rustic space which by design, allowed the ambience and atmosphere to bleed into the recordings.

Terra recorded guitar and vocals over the span of six days. “I was alone in the outback in a very rustic setting with no cell phones or internet. It was an inspiring experience. I feel lucky to have had the opportunity to make music in this way.”

The album took its full form on Canadian soil in the hands of Mike Ardagh where further instrumentation was carefully handcrafted in his studio in Toronto and Montreal. Photographer and graphic designer Robyn Kent (Montreal, Canada) traveled to Australia to capture the visual aspects of the album. Much cross-continental communication has transpired to bring the project into being.

Leopardwood is a rootsy and heartfelt insight into the feeling of the outback, a longing for home and love. 'This is a place where conditions can be harsh and the solitude can be overwhelming but the reward is a humbled spirit and a stronger sense of self.' And in this case, a new album as well.

Each album download comes with a 48-page digital booklet of photography and liner notes (see terragrimard.com for more details).
