ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Steve Coffey; Stu Mitchell; Lance Loree; Matt Herne; Russ Baker; Dave Bauer and Steve Relf are THE LOKELS
A follow up to "East of East Coulee", "Sessions" was recorded LIVE OFF THE FLOOR in Jan. of 2004 at The East Coulee School Museum Tearoom. East Coulee is a small mining town just outside of Drumheller, Alberta. The region is known not only for dinosaurs but the vast, powerful landscape and very warm, gracious folks... and ghosts. for more info on THE LOKELS...and East Coulee...check out their previous CD... meanwhile here's
A few recent quotes from the new CD "32 Below Sessions" released September of 2004

voted a TOP 3 ALBERTA DISC by CKUA RADIO

"Slick production can be the death of a good album. Sometimes all you really need is a bunch of finely tuned players who are kindred musical spirits to make a piece of good music. 32 Below Sessions rides the rusty edge of the blade between classic country and new world traditional. The boys in the band know both sides well.
Steve Coffey is in the Southern Alberta roots music catalogue right along side plaid wool jackets and Sorrel boots. His latest offering is as warm as a wood stove and welcoming as country bar on a Saturday evening. In fact if you could catch the band in a foothills tavern on a wintry night you would find these songs and their players at home in true form. Let the music play in the background as you visit friends or work on the car and you will be doing the art justice. It won't float by unnoticed. It will sink in, and before long you'll know these songs like you know Good Hearted Woman, Abilene, or Bobby Magee.
-Chris Martin; Penguin Eggs (winter issue, 2004/5)

"The rolling, slowly rocking roots songs that make up sessions are cut from the same dust-caked burlap sack as its predecessor (East of East Coulee) - sonically tactile tributes to the emotional and physical landscape of Alberta's countryside...Not surprisingly, the results on sessions are just as wonderful, just as colloquial, just as honest as that first time out" Mike Bell; The Calgary Sun; Oct 15 2004
*
"In a city notable for its proliferation of fine country-roots songwriters, Steve Coffey has emerged as one of the most seasoned. His latest CD, 32 Below Sessions, recorded with his band The Lokels, confirms that. From the working man's lament Corns, with Coffey's pained moan of a vocal fitting the lyrics like a miner's gloves, to the harp-dog country boy blues of Someday, the disc consistently finds its mark. Other highlights include Raising Grace, Cottonwood Road and the honky-tonkin' Fondly Remembered- every one rich with wood-smoked, prairie soul." Heath McCoy; The Calgary Herald; Oct 14 2004
*
"The new disc, 32 Below Sessions, continues along the vein of fine musical craftsmanship that we've come to expect from such players as Lance Loree and Dave Bauer, who are both members of The Lokels, making it a natural for the festival circuit."
Mary-Lynn Wardle; F.F.W.D Magazine. Oct 14 2004

"Few capture the moods and rhythms of prairie roots tunes quite like Calgary's Steve Coffey and The Lokels...Coffey's music is earthy, grounded and authentic - lyrically and musically." Mark Weber; The Red Deer Express; Aug 28, 2004
*
"There is a reason we've been dubbed Alberta, Texas; some of the finest roots music being released today is coming from right here in Alberta" Donald Teplyske; Red Deer Advocate; Sept 3 2004

Guy Kerr

This is the best CD I purchased this year!
This CD is worth listening to over and over again. It has mixture of tracks - some of which make an immediate impression, and some that sneak up and grow stronger everytime you listen to the CD. This is simply an outstanding piece of music.

Murray

A refreshing bit of live off the floor music
Sounds more live than alot of so called "live productions"
even without an audience in attendance. It gives the feel of a live show.

Dan Duguay
