CSA and Kaleidoscope Promotions present: Roxanne Potvin and The Good Lovelies
Friday, December 11, 2009
Roxanne Potvin recorded her first CD when she was 21, a self-financed, self-produced, proudly independent collection of songs rooted in the blues. The Way It Feels her next album, was produced by Colin Linden and had guest appearances by Bruce Cockburn, John Hiatt, Daniel Lanois and others. She became the artist to watch and received a Juno nomination for Blues Album of the Year. This album also brought her international fame and the bilingual artist from Gatineau was invited to play a major festival in France. Since then, the 27 year old singer has become a seasoned touring artist playing in Europe and the US, playing the prestigious Toronto Women's Blues Review show twice and being nominated as Female Vocalist of the Year at the Maple Blues Awards in '08. Her latest album No Love For The Poisonous is filled with songs that resonate deeply with this generations’ experiences, it’s an engaging effort that demonstrates her personal growth and evolution as a singer, writer and artist.
The aptly named Good Lovelies are Caroline Brooks, Kerri Ough and Sue Passmore are described as "flirty-bluegrass" and "the mischievous Andrews Sisters". The Toronto-based trio rely on unerring three-part vocal harmonies, clever songs and, onstage, convulsively funny repartee. Currently they are on tour in support of their Christmas album Under The Mistletoe.
