Audiences all over North America are falling in love with the funny, upbeat Good Lovelies. Winners of the 2010 Juno Award (Canadian Grammy) and a nominee in 2012 for Roots Album of the Year, as well as being awarded Vocal Group of the Year in 2011 at the Canadian Folk Music Awards, the Good Lovelies are making waves across Canada, the United States, and now in the UK and Australia.
The aptly named Good Lovelies are Caroline Brooks, Kerri Ough and Sue Passmore, all of them best friends. Part folk-roots, part Western Swing, the Toronto-based trio relies on unerring three-part vocal harmonies, clever songs, and, on stage, funny repartee drawn from a seemingly endless succession of comedic adventures on the road.
Since joining forces in 2006, and quitting day jobs in 2008, their tireless rain or shine outlook and undeniable mutual respect have helped the trio weather years of constant touring. Light-hearted songwriting and irresistibly buoyant dispositions have made them the darlings of the summer festival circuit, and brought them through countless theatres, folkclubs and house concerts. They have toured with Stuart McLean and the Vinyl Café and appeared on stages and in studios with Broken Social Scene, Kathleen Edwards and Jill Barber.
The latest album, Live At Revolution, was released on December 18, 2013. The record showcases the glorious harmonies and playful songwriting that have made the Good Lovelies regulars at the Juno Awards. Live At Revolution also captures all the charm and intimacy of this talented trio’s stage presence and band dynamic. The album was recorded live in front of an audience over two days in May 2012, at Revolution Recording in Toronto.
And moving forward? Well, there’s a huge country south of Canada that’s beginning to get used to laughter, Good Lovelies-style, and a dose of hopeful goodwill from their northern neighbors. With coast-to-coast bookings, the Lovelies’ endless road trip continues to get a whole lot more interesting!
