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 Sunny Era
The Sunny Era opens, performing as a two-piece, incorporating violin, clarinet, guitar, and accordion into their songs.

Evolving their sound from world-music infused trio to indie rock quintet, The Sunny Era brings you their fifth release, Save Yourself From You. The group embraces a more traditional indie-rock sound, with more lead guitar. keyboards. and synthesizers on this new release. Lyrics and musical style range from reflective and haunting to joyful and celebratory, takign the listener through a journey that reflects on the ups and downs of life.

Hailing from the Twin Cities. MN, The Sunny Era is Eric Stainbrook on guitar and lead vocals; Laila Stainbrook on keys, violin, and background vocals: Rob Föehl on drums; Patrick Zampogna on lead guitar; and Tony Zampogna on bass guitar. As a trio, Eric, Laila. and Rob have made music toether for more than a decade. and have expanded to include brothers Patrick and Tony for this release. The five-piece wrote. recorded and produced their latest album. Save Yourself From You, with mastering by Jeff Lipton of Peerless Mastering.
