The Good Lovelies (at The Spire)
THE GOOD LOVELIES – Kerri Ough, Sue Passmore, and Caroline Brooks are immensely talented vocalists and songwriters in their own right; however, it’s their voices interwoven in harmony, powerful and pure, organic and inspiring, that elevates the Good Lovelies from impressive to peerless. Over the course of their decade-plus career, they’ve covered plenty of stylistic ground, adding tinges of pop, roots, jazz, and even hip-hop to their country folk core at various points. Their upcoming collection offers a perfect balance between a more modern production style and the wholesome musical influences that have made them a household name over the years.
