and no shows meant last night’s belated start to 2019 was eagerly awaited, fortunately we had Angel Snow (and guitarist Joe Wilkins) on hand to deliver a spectacular set at The Greystones which more than made it worth the wait. Big thanks to them and Gemma Gray for the fine support, plus everybody who joined us.

We haven’t got quite so long to wait until the next one, WagonWheel Presents… returns to The Backroom on Monday April 8th when we’re welcome once again the Good Lovelies. Almost four years since their last Sheffield show, they’ll be in the UK with a full band for the first time and touring with them will be fellow Canadian artists Fortunate Ones (with whom there’ll be a few collaborations on the night too). You can find the full preview for this show here, tickets are on sale here, or take a look at the Coming Soon… page for a taster of what’s ahead.

We hope you can join us too.

***GOOD LOVELIES***

You hear it a lot these days – the idea that something is greater than the sum of its parts – and yet there’s really no better way to describe the musical essence of the Good Lovelies.

Kerri Ough, Sue Passmore, and Caroline Brooks – 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.

The trio first united in 2006 for a one-off performance and has since compiled a catalogue of four studio albums, a pair of EPs, a live album, and Christmas collection. Through it all, the unmistakable sound of their intertwined voices has been the sonic anchor, and that remains true as the Good Lovelies now look to push further into the mainstream with their most accessible and pop-influenced output to date.

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. What’s more, the songs themselves build on the Good Lovelies’ familiar foundation with a widespread appeal.

If what happens next goes according to plan, though, the Good Lovelies will see their profile propelled to new heights thanks to a contemplative creative approach and a new spin on the signature sound that’s earned them audiences and accolades the world over. The music, the album, and the trio – all are greater than the sum of their individual parts. Simply, that’s the Good Lovelies.

The Good Lovelies are one of the best vocal groups in Canada. If the Andrews Sisters joined the Beach Boys you would get close to their sweet harmonies.” – Stuart McLean, Vinyl Café
