The Good Lovelies are bringing their powerful harmonies to our shores

The Good Lovelies return to Australian shores during March and April of 2018, launching their new album Shapeshifters at Blue Mountains Music Festival, Yackandandah and National Folk Festival, as well as a special series of concerts across NSW and Victoria.
Kerri Ough, Sue Passmore and Caroline Brooks are each immensely talented vocalists and songwriters in their own right, but together, their interwoven voices create such a powerful and pure, organic and inspiring harmony that the ensemble is elevated from impressive to peerless. They represent the essence of a creation which is certainly greater than the sum of its parts.
In concert, their impeccable vocals, winsome song-writing and comedic banter have won them acclaim across Canada, USA, UK, Australia and Europe.
Over the course of more than a decade they have covered plenty of stylistic ground, including “folk-pop”, with country folk as their core and first love. The trio first united in 2006 for a one-off performance; they have since recorded eight albums and won a JUNO, plus four Canadian Folk Music Awards for their unmistakable sound of their extraordinary intertwined voices.
“We’ve been a band for eleven years since our mid-20s, so we’ve lived a lot of life! Two of us are mothers to young children and one member lost her mum a few years ago, all experiences we explore and work through on Shapeshifters,” says Caroline Brooks, vocalist and lead guitarist. “This album is an exciting new beginning for us.”
Joined by The Waif’s David Ross MacDonald on drums and celebrated Canadian MJ Dandeneau (Xavier Rudd, Pete Murray) on double bass, The Good Lovelies have five special appearances in Victoria. Don’t miss this terrific act.
Shapeshifters is available via all digital outlets now.
