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 recovering from the recession these three women are the perfect antidote. Winners of the 2010 Juno Award (Canadian Grammy) for Roots Album of the Year and the New Emerging Artist Award at the Canadian Folk Music Awards—the Good Lovelies are making waves across Canada.
The aptly named Good Lovelies are Caroline Brooks, Kerri Ough and Sue Passmore; all of them best friends and refugees from solo careers. Part folk-roots, part Western Swing, the Toronto-based trio relies on unerring three-part vocal harmonies, clever songs, and, on stage, convulsively funny repartee drawn from a seemingly endless succession of comedic adventures on the road.
The Good Lovelies played their first show in December of 2006. Since then, they have quit their day jobs, toured coast to coast numerous times, played countless house concerts, festivals, folk clubs and coffeehouses, and released three albums.
