Billing themselves as "aggressive folk from Nordeast Minneapolis," the Sudden Lovelys will take the stage at Crossings at 7:30 p.m. Saturday Feb. 16.
Formed in the summer of 2010, the Sudden Lovelys consists of newlyweds Paige and Daniel Ferraro.
In 2011, after their first nationwide tour, they graduated to a humble home studio in the basement and proceeded to record three full length albums.
The albums were released unofficially as “Part 1: Red Rose in a Yellow Army,” “Part 2: Big White Circle,” and “Part 3: Liquid Silver.” Each album has its own vibe along with a raw and organic sound, due to the fact that the bulk of the recording was done live and in one or two takes.
In 2012, after recording an album intended for the entire family titled, "In A Musical World," the Sudden Lovelys released a double album of studio recordings called "Fiasco." These 30 recordings were completed just before the Sudden Lovelys officially formed in 2010. “Fiasco” is considered the true beginning of the band.
The Lovelys evoke many moods in their music. Some songs are quiet and pretty, some are haunting and dark. Some are sweet and charming, some are raw and aggressive. They are very proud of what they’re able to accomplish independently – he creates the website and design work while she handles the booking and logistics.
Daniel writes, plays guitar, sings and stomps on the steamer trunk. Paige also sings, slaps a cymbal with a tambourine, and plays a slew of funky hand percussion.
While performing, their biggest joy is the connection shared with a responsive audience.
