The Lonely Lovers is a northern-Michigan musical collaborative helmed by Mark Blaauw-Hara and featuring the contributions of a number of local musicians, including Jen Schaap, Caroline Barlow, Jamie Platte, Ann Stebelton, Chris Graham, Kevin Putman, Greg Carpenter, Cody Farrier, and Chris Koury. The usual live line-up features Mark, Jen, and Caroline on vocals, bass, and guitars, along with Chris, Kevin, or Greg on the drum kit. Both in the recorded music and in their live show, the joy they feel at playing together is palpable.
The Lonely Lovers write songs that tell the stories of Michigan folks who are trying to get by and find connections with one another. Sometimes these folks get it right, and sometimes things take an unexpected turn. The group’s songs follow in the tradition of place-based musical storytellers like the Turnpike Troubadours, the Drive-By Truckers, and Bruce Springsteen, resonating authentic experience with every chord. thelonelylovers.bandcamp.com
