Funny and upbeat, with just a pinch of sass, the Good Lovelies' textbook three-part harmonies, constant instrument swapping and witty on-stage banter have enlivened the folk music landscape since they joined forces in 2006 for their first show at Toronto's funky Gladstone Hotel.
How the Good Lovelies (Caroline Brooks, Kerri Ough and Sue Passmore) got together is a bit of a mystery: Sue remembers meeting her band mates during a limbo competition, Caroline thinks they met at a chess tournament, but Kerri is convinced they first crossed paths during a bar fight... Whatever the story may be, the ladies immediately realized they had something special, so they hit the road on a mission to charm Canadian audiences coast to coast.
Their tireless rain or shine outlook and undeniable mutual respect have helped the trio weather years of constant touring. With jaunts to Australia, the UK and the US in their 2011 schedule, the Good Lovelies' road-tested tenacity will bring them further afield than ever before.
Lighthearted songwriting and irresistibly buoyant dispositions have made them the darlings of the summer festival circuit, including spots at the storied Mariposa and Hillside Festivals and the Montreal Jazz Festival. They have toured with Stuart McLean and the Vinyl Cafe and appeared on stages and in studios with Broken Social Scene, Kathleen Edwards and Jill Barber.
In addition to their acclaimed holiday album, Under the Mistletoe (2009), which showcases old and new seasonal tunes (including three original songs), the Good Lovelies' self-titled full-length album (also released in 2009) proved their blithe brand of folk music has year-round appeal. With this record, the Good Lovelies won New Emerging Artist at the Canadian Folk Music Awards. In 2010, this same album received a Juno for Roots/Traditional Album of the Year.
Let the Rain Fall, their third full-length album, was recently nominated for the 2012 Juno for Roots/Traditional Album of the Year. With equal parts city and country, highway and home, wistfulness and sass, the Good Lovelies' good humour and self-assurance shines through from the toe-tapping start of "Made for Rain" to the sweet final notes in the French-flecked "Mrs. T." In between, you'll hear reflections on urban imperfections with "Backyard", straight-up love songs like "Best I Know" and upbeat numbers like "Kiss Me in the Kitchen."
The album, like the Good Lovelies, has a universal appeal, sure to please not just their fellow Canadians, but those south of the border and across the pond too.
Let The Rain Fall, say the Good Lovelies, confident that bright and breezy days lie ahead.
SUPPORT FROM DENNIS ELLSWORTH
"Of all the singer-songwriters that are making their presence known on Prince Edward Island, and there are quite a few, Dennis Ellsworth is standing out from the crowd." - Glenn Meisner, CBC's Atlantic Airwaves
Dennis has grown into one of Atlantic Canada's most potent songwriters, with beautifully poetic lyrics and a veteran's sense of melody, tune and arrangement.
The most recent release, Dusk Dreams, was recorded in Athens, Georgia, with acclaimed musician and producer, David Barbe (Drive By Truckers, Cracker, Bob Mould/Sugar). The album consists of ten songs that blend folk, pop, country, lounge, blues, soul, and whatever else. Barbe's production is subtle, yet gorgeous and steers clear of interfering with the loosely wonderful performances. Critics are calling Dusk Dreams, Dennis Ellsworth's most beautifully crafted release to date.
Dennis Ellsworth has two previous solo recordings, 2010's Chesterfield Dweller of the Year, which Americana-UK.com called "heartfelt and heart-achingly beautiful, a timeless album", and Strange Boat, an EP released in September 2011 and nominated for 4 MPEI awards.
With his honky-tonkin' side project, Haunted Hearts, Dennis has written and released two definitive records (Thank You, Goodnight and Howdy), collectively winning the group seven different awards with Music PEI and garnered an ECMA nomination in 2010 for Rising Star.
In typical fashion, Dennis is working on material and making plans for the next solo record. The record will be produced by Josh Finalayson (Skydiggers) in late January, early February 2013 at The Bathhouse in Bath, ON and released in Autumn 2013 on Busted Flat Records.
In August 2012, it was announced that Dennis was a regional finalist in the International category of the Mountain Stage New Song Contest.
