ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Good Lovelies - Sharp, sassy, funny and building a following across Canada

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 (or successfully begged for leaves of absence), played countless clubs and coffee houses and half a dozen folk festivals, completed a 40-date tour from Montreal to Vancouver Island and back (by car and without quarrelling) and released a five-track EP with 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.

Produced by Les Cooper (Madison Violet, Craig Cardiff, Jill Barber) and Adam King, the CD features guest musicians Christine Bougie, Darcy Yates, Drew Jurecka, Justin Rutledge, Joel Stouffer, Spencer Evans and Marc Rogers.

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.

The Good Lovelies
Can't say enough wonderful things about this recording. I knew they were good before buying the cd, but being able to listen to the complete thing was a wonderful pleasant surprise. I've recommended it to everyone, even my parents! Now, to see them play live...

The Album I've Been Waiting For
My only bone of contention with this record is my jealousy around not being apart of something so wonderful. Any trace of amateurish recordings, songs, or singing is completely absent from this wonderfully crafted, beautifully sung, engrossing album--not that these girls were ever amateurs. From beginning to end, these women blend the best of their collective songwriting skills. I also find it fascinating that these women hired a chorus of men to stand behind their obvious talent and spotlight status to sing in support of their astute lyrics and intricate melodies. These women are in control of their talent and on this album, this is all too apparent.

Wonderfully done girls!

JB

Brilliant
What a great discovery. Every foot tapping tune is awesome. More people need to hear this!

WF

Great fun!
The music is terrific, further enhanced by the sheer joy the musicians are having. It is evident in every track. Enjoy!

Good Lovelies CD Review
Modern music with an old fashioned twist
The Good Lovelies are a fun loving girl band made up of three ladies who have all had successful solo careers – Caroline Brooks, Sue Passmore and Kerri Ough. Their sound spans many styles of music from bluegrass to western swing and from easy listening to rockabilly. Most of all their music is fun to listen to and easy to engage with. It is the kind of music that will make you smile. On stage they are funny and their shows are a big hit with audiences of all ages. The band came together three years ago, since then they have toured Canada, released an EP, sang backup on Jill Barber’s latest CD and received extensive airplay in Canada with a song called Taboo from their EP. Their self-titled album contains original songs with catchy lyrics and melodies. The music is modern but still manages to retain some of the charm of an era gone by. The album was produced by Les Cooper, who has worked with Madison Violet, and Adam King. They have been compared with The Be Good Tanyas and The Andrews Sisters. I Want gets the album off to a fine start. This is a rousing western swing influenced song. The music flows freely and the ladies voices are crisp and fresh sounding. Sleepwalkin’ has a really old fashioned feel to it. The music and vocals bring the song to life. Down Down Down has a strong country feel. I am reminded here of the Dixie Chicks. Cheek To Cheek is a charming romantic song with a really classy jazz infused feel. So Charming is another country infused song. Lie Down is a great song with quirky lyrics. This song allows the three ladies vocals to blend together perfectly. Baby, I Got My Way is a slower bluegrass/country infused song. Laundry (I’m Happy) is a slow paced song, which allows the vocals of the three ladies to take centre stage. The music here is sparse and gentle. February Song is a beautiful song with lush vocals and instrumentation. This song has a country flavour running through it and also echoes of Norah Jones. Lumberjack is a folk/pop infused song with a dreamy light feel. Into The Spotlight is a classy song with lovely vocals. All too soon the album comes to an end leaving the listener wanting more.
