Mixing soaring vocals, sweet harmonies, and sultry strings, complemented with an infectiously high-energy stage presence is the essence of 2014 Canadian Country Music Association® (CCMA®) Discovery Series winners The Lovelocks (MDM Recordings Inc. / Universal Music Canada), a female roots-country duo comprised of Ali Raney and Zoe Neuman. Celebrated by RocketHub as "crowd funding pioneers in the world of country music in Canada", this business-savvy duo has raised over $65,000 dollars to date, funding the recording of their debut EP and the forthcoming album Born to Love (release date: March 4, 2016).
Gearing up for the release of their second album, The Lovelocks released their second single, “Home Sweet Home” to Canadian radio on December 25, 2015, to imminent fan-fuelled festive success. Their new single has dazzled Canadian country music fans, becoming the #1 selling single by a Canadian country artist (week of January 26, 2016)! Co-written by The Lovelocks (Ali Raney and Zoe Neuman), Gavin Slate (The Tragically Hip, Doc Walker, Barenaked Ladies), Travis Wood, and produced by Grammy award winner Ben Glover, and JUNO award winner Mitch Merrett, “Home Sweet Home” also made it to #2 on the top 50 Canadian viral list on Spotify, gaining 100,000 plays within the first month of the release. The single also achieved a spot in the top 20 Country Singles iTunes chart, with The Lovelocks being the only Canadian artist in the top 20 at that time. The video for “Home Sweet Home” recently debuted on CMT Canada (February 5, 2016), and was directed by Ben Knechtel, who also directed the music video for Carly Rae Jepsen's “Call Me Maybe”.
