Oh My!

by Good Lovelies

Sporting a medley of instruments from piano to glock, mandolin to banjo, and snaps to claps - good, solid, entertainment cultivated after serious hours spent on toboggans, in pajamas, and pounding back flask upon flask of Canada's finest whiskey.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Good Lovelies are not your run-of-the-mill "all girl" band. At a time when too many of us are affected by gloom, doom and advancing recession these three women are the perfect antidote.

Armed with a pile of instruments, a repertoire of sassy and sophisticated songs and an effervescent sense of humour they never fail to charm even the toughest audiences.

The aptly named Good Lovelies are Caroline Brooks, Kerri Ough and Sue Passmore, all of them best friends and refugees from solo careers. Described as "flirty-bluegrass" and "the mischievous Andrews Sisters" the Toronto-based trio rely on unerring three-part vocal harmonies, clever songs and, onstage, convulsively funny repartee.

The trio started as a group only two years ago. Since then, they have quit their jobs, played countless clubs and coffee houses and half a dozen folk festivals, completed a 40-date tour from Montreal to Vancouver Island and back and released a five-track EP featuring the playful single and CBC Radio favourite, 'Taboo'.

Not to mention singing backup on Jill Barber's latest CD, earning CBC airplay, opening for the likes of the Arrogant Worms and Lynn Miles, holding down a weekly spot at the uber-hip Cameron House and selling out a solo show at Toronto's Hugh's Room.

The Good Lovelies' first full-length self-titled CD is being released in January; it contains 11 finely-crafted original songs with catchy lyrics and memorable melodies. The album borrows styles from bygone eras, all the while keeping the music current and relevant.

Apart from the new album, Caroline, Kerri and Sue are planning two major tours, have already been booked (for the second year in a row) at Mariposa, and will play the In the Dead of Winter Festival in Halifax.

Spreading sharp, light-hearted music from coast to coast is the plan for 2009. And after that? Well, there's a huge country south of Canada that could use some laughter and another dose of hopeful goodwill from their neighbours, and the Lovelies are just the women to provide it.

Instrumentation
Caroline Brooks: vocals, guitar, mandolin, banjo, bass.
Kerri Ough: vocals, guitar, banjo, glockenspiel, bass.
Sue Passmore: vocals, guitar, bass, mandolin, percussion.

Three wonderful songwriters coming together
I have heard each of these beautifully talented women separately and to hear them together is to hear a super-concentrated product of brilliance. Each lady works off the next in perfect harmony. They're songs and voices are reminiscent of a the home-grown wonders you would hear on AM radio.

Brilliant
Also heard a track on CBC, took the trouble to send a mail to get the name of the band, I am so happy I did, your awesome! Good luck, will buy the album to support.

Lovely
I'm loving this EP... VERY beautiful harmonies and melodies! I'm really looking forward to their full-length album :)

Love Goodies - Huge Fans!

A Sure Thing
My friends and I each got a copy of this CD after a Good Lovelies show and played it over and over. This little CD made our weekend and we're dying for the new one. Keep 'em comin'!

Martin Finnigan

Bright, bubbly and fun
I stumbled on this band's myspace, heard the songs and thought 'hey, these guys are rather good'...so I ordered the CD. When it arrived and I listened properly I thought 'hey, these guys are very very good'. I've been playing them on Leith FM here in Scotland, and hope they'll be performing over here some day!!!

Love the Lovelies

Oh My!
Heard one song on CBC, actually held my interest long enough to look up the Good Lovelies on the 'net and make the purchase. The CD was worth the effort!
