A chart topping debut EP, multiple accolades including 2014 Canadian Country Music Association® (CCMA®) award win and media acclaim, 2014 was a good year for Toronto-based The Lovelocks (MDM Recordings Inc. / Universal Music Canada).
Celebrated by BlogTO (in July, 2014) as one of the top 5 alt-country bands to watch in Toronto, The Lovelocks are a dynamic duo comprised of musical partners in crime Ali Raney and Zoe Neuman, two city girls who LOVE country music. Their sound is commonly described as a mixture of The Dixie Chicks go Lumineering with a Mumford & Sons-ian alt-country, roots-inspired approach filled with soaring vocals, sweet harmonies and sultry strings.
The Lovelocks first became friends over a shared passion for music, which led to writing songs in each other’s living rooms on Sunday afternoons, and eventually, the decision to start a band together. With combined talents on fiddle, mandolin, acoustic guitar and vocals, The Lovelocks are woven together with a desire to create music that gives voice to both the bitter and sweet in life. Perhaps the mystery of their band name may also stem from a shared love of a few old flames (having dated some of the same fellas ironically, or even serendipitously, before the ladies actually ever met). But The Lovelocks will never kiss and tell!
