March 24-27 (Upwey, Healesville, Ararat) In the morning, we got up early to have coffee in Yack one last time before visiting a local artist’s pottery studio. After perusing his beautiful work, most of us left with something, and we eventually started toward our next stop, Healesville. Along the way, we stopped at the “Olive […]

Upon arrival, […]

March 17 to March 21 (Ulla Dulla, Cadgee NSW, Canberra, ACT & Mount Beauty, VIC) When Rebecca, our tour manager, asked me where I wanted to wake up on my birthday in Australia, I told her I would just love to be near the water. With a little sleuthing she found a great house with […]

March 13-16, 2014 (From Melbourne to Sydney and then to the Blue Mountains Festival in Katoomba) I’m just going to gloss over our travel day that felt mostly hellish due to a long night drive after the Valencia Creek show followed by an early morning flight back to Sydney. In a month of traveling, there […]

From Sydney to Melbourne (March 7 – March 12) After returning our cockroach infested rental van in Sydney, we hopped on a short flight to Melbourne. The problem with being a touring group of six these days (3 Good Lovelies, 1 Man Lovely, 1 Baby Lovely, and 1 Lovely Tour Manager) is that we take […]

From Toronto to Sydney (Feb 26 – Mar 6, 2014) I remember arriving at the Sydney airport in the morning, and sitting on the tarmac while the quarantine spray-truck sprayed the plane. I was tired, but not exhausted like the first time we visited. It was warm and I was impatient to reach my suitcase […]

Spending a week in one place while on tour is a rarity for us. We’re usually flitting around, unpacking and repacking our bags on a daily basis. So, we were excited when we were invited to spend a week in Gillette, Wyoming at the end of January. I took this as an opportunity to move […]

I just shovelled another foot of snow from my driveway in St. John’s. And I did it with a ginormous smile on my face, knowing that in one month I’ll be in Australia, playing music festivals, bottling up sunshine and snorkelling! I love our Canadian winter, but I am ready for a few non-seasonal freckles […]

I think I can say without a shadow of a doubt that we’ve never been to a town where it was declared “Good Lovelies Day” by the mayor, in a motion presented to the town council. And so, we arrived in Kindred, North Dakota on “Good Lovelies Day” January 19th, to a room full of […]

At 5am Sunday morning, I awoke in preparation for a long day of travel and performing. I considered the travel ahead with heavy lids, splashed my face with water and began to wonder about what particular slice of “the biz” we would be privy to that day. You see, Sunday, we headed to New York […]
