The Good Lovelies on Wikipedia

The Good Lovelies is your popular Canadian folk/country trio, consisting of Caroline Brooks, Kerri Ough and Sue Passmore.

The group’s three members have been all solo artists from the Toronto area when they came together in 2006 to play at a Christmas concert at Toronto’s Gladstone Hotel.

Subsequently they made a decision to continue performing together, releasing their debut EP, Oh My, in 2007.

They released their very first full-length album, The Good Lovelies, in 2009, and followed up with the Christmas-themed EP Under the Mistletoe later on the same year.

This is the first music video for the 2010 JUNO-award winning group ‘The Good Lovelies.’

Their album The Good Lovelies won the Juno Award for Roots and Traditional Album of the Year – Group at the 2010 Juno Awards.

Three Great Lady Singers

The Good Lovelies aren’t your run-of-the-mill “all girl” band. At a time when a great number of us are affected by gloom, doom and advancing economic depression these three women are the perfect antidote.

There’s nothing like a good tune to get you motivated, it kind of gives you extra energy.

Armed with a pile of equipment and instruments, a repertoire of sassy and sophisticated songs with an effervescent sense of humour they by no means fail to charm even the toughest audiences.

Lighthearted songwriting and irresistibly buoyant dispositions have made them the darlings of the summer season festival circuit, for example spots at the storied Mariposa and Hillside Festivals and the Montreal Jazz Festival. They’ve toured with Stuart McLean and the Vinyl Cafe along with appearing on stages and in studios with Broken Social Scene, Kathleen Edwards and Jill Barber.

Good Lovelies in Concert

Funny, humorous 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 joining forces in 2006 for their first show at Toronto’s funky Gladstone Hotel.

Under the Mistletoe (2009)

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 in the course of a limbo competition, Caroline thinks they met at a chess tournament, but Kerri is convinced they initially crossed paths during a bar fight…

Whatever the story may be, the ladies straight away discovered they had something special, so they hit the road on a mission to charm Canadian audiences from coast to coast.

Their tireless rain or shine outlook and undeniable mutual respect have allowed 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.
