The Juno-winning trio, Good Lovelies are excited to announce the release of their fifth studio album, Shapeshifters. Kerri Ough, Sue Passmore, and Caroline Brooks make up the immensely talented trio of vocalists, and they have done it again with this release. The trio has stepped into a new sound and are pushing further into the mainstream with their most accessible and pop-influenced output to date. They teamed up with award-winning producer Daniel Ledwell (David Myles, Jenn Grant, Justin Rutledge, Fortunate Ones) to record 10 new songs that explore a wide variety of themes. There is an undertone of hopefulness to their music, the struggles they face – either the challenges of motherhood or coping with the grief of losing a mother.
My personal favourite is the first track on the album “I See Gold”, it is such a powerful song of importance and struggles, finding the gold lining in your struggle. The video is about overcoming the everyday. It follows three people trying to find a way through and searching for peace.
Another favourite is “Daylight”, it is such a beautiful melody, with incredible vocals and storyline.
The album was done so well it was hard to just pick a few favourites out of the pack, but another one that I have listened to over and over is “Lightness”. It’s a little more upbeat than the other tracks on the album, a fun and enjoyable song.
I believe a lot of people will relate to this album, especially mothers, as these songs draw you in and really capture your emotions. The unmistakable and unforgettable sound of their intertwined vocals is the anchor of the album.
My name is Marianne and a music lover from Nova Scotia. I am a full time working mom of 2 beautiful girls who are full of life and love. I have an absolute passion for music and writing, I jumped at the opportunity to freelance for Canadian Beats. I love local music, I grew up in a family full of Gaelic singers in Cape Breton but I also have a passion for country and just about anything else that catches my ear. Writing gives me something of my own that is completely out of my day to day activity, it somewhat allows me to escape my everyday.
When I am not working, writing and hanging out with my husband and girls, I am running, reading or riding my horse.
