Superb singer, writer and guitarist: those are words frequently used to describe Ottawa-based performer Terry Tufts. All of those attributes – and more – are on display in his new album, The Better Fight, which is scheduled for release this fall.
Terry’s latest recording, The Better Fight, reflects his continuing growth as songwriter and musician. In it, he explores the pop, jazz and folk idioms, moving seamlessly through all three in the company of some of the best musicians in Eastern Canada. Apart from the sheer musicality of the new recording, The Better Fight is, as one writer noted “the culmination of Terry Tufts’ career as a gifted and passionate songwriter. Whether he’s tackling the dilemma posed by an unjust war or savouring moments in time, Tufts displays a boxer’s heart wrapped inside a troubadour’s spirit.”
Join the Cove in welcoming Terry to the stage on September 14th from 5:30-8:30pm.
