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 almost three years ago. Since then, they have quit their jobs, completed four successful cross-Canada Tours, played countless clubs and coffee houses and released a five-track EP with the playful single, and CBC Radio favourite ‘Taboo.’

To boot, the Good Lovelies sang backup on Jill Barber’s latest CD, earned heavy CBC airplay with their latest self-titled album released in January 2009, opened for the likes of the Arrogant Worms, Old Man Luedecke, Ashley MacIsaac & Lynn Miles and held down a weekly spot at the uber-hip Cameron House in Toronto.

The Good Lovelies’ first full-length self-titled CD 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 (Jill Barber, Madison Violet, Craig Cardiff) and Adam King, the CD features guest musicians Christine Bougie, Darcy Yates, Drew Jurecka, Justin Rutledge, Joel Stouffer, Spencer Evans, Michael Davidson and Marc Rogers.

Apart from spreading sharp, light-hearted music coast to coast the Good Lovelies are set to release their brand new Christmas album, “Under the Mistletoe” in November 2009.
