GOOD LOVELIES RETURN WITH BURN THE PLAN, NEW ALBUM OUT MAY 26, 2015
The Good Lovelies are one of Canada’s premier folk bands. With high-profile awards including a Juno and multiple Canadian Folk Music Awards on the shelf, as well as plenty of praise from the international folk music community, the trio is now set to venture beyond the boundaries of old time traditions with a new album, Burn The Plan.
For Burn The Plan, the trio spent time developing, expanding and honing their sound as individual musicians first, and as Good Lovelies second. These new songs were crafted not to ‘fit’ their catalogue per se, but as expressions of individual voices within a tight-knit group dynamic. What keeps the three Lovelies making music together is not just their uncanny musical compatibility; it’s their unshakeable friendships that support each member contributing to the songwriting in distinct ways.
2011’s Juno-nominated Let The Rain Fall was the last time the Good Lovelies released a full-length studio album. It may not feel so long ago, since the band’s profile has continued to grow with awards, steady sold-out touring, and a live album in between, but you can do a whole lotta living, loving and letting go in four years. For Caroline Brooks, Kerri Ough and Sue Passmore, four years has been the exact number of hours, moments and experiences needed to take the next step, to burn the plan.
