2017 CCMA Awards nominated duo The Lovelocks are pleased to announce the release of their new single “Staycation”, available digitally today via MDM Recordings Inc./Universal Music Canada. The fun-loving track melds the duo’s soaring vocals and elegant harmonies and is the lead single from the Toronto-based twosome’s forthcoming album, available early next year. Celebrated for their soul stirring performances and melodic strings, The Lovelocks recently garnered their fourth consecutive CCMA Awards nomination in the 2017 Roots Artist or Group of the Year category.
Friends first, The Lovelocks (Ali Raney and Zoe Sparrow), are woven together with a desire to create music that gives voice to both the bitter and sweet in life. The group has a deep passion for their craft and country music as a whole and shares a strong desire to be leaders in the movement of bringing female voices back to the top of the Canadian country radio airwaves. With “Staycation”, the duo celebrates the smallest victories in the biggest way possible, making the most out of any situation.
Earlier this spring, The Lovelocks (Ali Raney and Zoe Sparrow) recorded their first live album at Calgary’s Webber Academy Performing Arts Centre as part of the live music broadcast series – Stampede City Sessions. “The Lovelocks Live” was released digitally on August 18th and the accompanying filmed Stampede City Sessions episode debuted on PBS (KPBS) the following day to an audience of more than 2 million viewers.
The duo first caught the attention of the Canadian country music industry when they won the CCMA Discovery Series in 2014. Their 2014 debut self-titled EP featured the highly-praised singles “Dance” and “Teardrop Tattoo” and hit #2 on the iTunes Country chart the day of release. Their sophomore album “Born To Love” dropped in 2016 and saw the release of three singles including “Home Sweet Home” which was the #1 selling single by a Canadian country artist the week of release. Their unique take on the Cyndi Lauper classic “Time After Time” infused the iconic song with upbeat roots country sounds and signature fiddle interplays helmed by five-time CCMA Fiddle Player of the Year Award nominee Raney.
Combining a lot of talent, a story to tell and a profound work ethic, The Lovelocks will surely have a lot to celebrate in 2017-18.
