LADIES SING LIGHTFOOT, is an album of 14 newly recorded Gordon Lightfoot songs produced by Carla Olson and performed by a variety of female artists.

The idea of recording an album of Gordon Lightfoot songs performed by female artists has been percolating for a few years – a prospect that only made sense considering Bob Dylan’s comment, “Every time I hear a song of his, I wish it would last forever.”

Producer Carla Olson decided that the time was right to pursue this concept so she developed a list of artists she thought would be appropriate. While she already knew some of the performers she had in mind, there were some she hadn’t previously met.

A few of the artists asked for Lightfoot song suggestions but most already had favorites and inquired if the one they wanted to record had been chosen by another.
