The Clumsy Lovers

It's often noted that Vancouver, BC country/rock/bluegrass group Clumsy Lovers is a road band, a fact their website credits to over 2500 live shows. Far from the slipshod implications of their name, this five-piece dynamo is a rock-solid music-making machine, cranking out blazing, string-fueled country anthems a-mile-a-toe-tapping-minute. It's been a few years since the release of their latest album, 2009's Make Yourself Known, yet the group appears to tour just for the joy of it, and with such world-conquering ambitions and zesty enthusiasm, it's hard to imagine that another album is far away. With Perry Acker. GWENDOLYN ELLIOTT
