A lifelong musician and creator, Caroline Marie Brooks is perhaps best-known as a member of heralded folk/country harmony trio The Good Lovelies, though she’s also lent her singing and six-string talents to friends like Kathleen Edwards, Jim Bryson, Lily Frost, and Peter Katz on projects of their own.

Her debut solo album, Everything at the Same Time (Sept 24, 2021) draws inspiration from her upbringing in a close-knit, creative family from Whitby, Ontario, and from the one she now shares with her partner and two children, and dog Jim.

Everything at the Same Time was recorded in the midst of an age when sometimes living through our memories of easier days may be all that we have. It asks only that we live and be present in the moment and to remember that though the days are long, the years are all too short. The inevitability of change looms in the distant, and Caroline Marie Brooks challenges you to hold on to the gift of the times we are in.

Recorded and co-produced with her dear friend Jim Bryson (Kathleen Edwards, Skydiggers, Suzie Ungerleider) at his Fixed Hinge studio (Stittsville, ON), Dream Date studio (Toronto, ON), and across southern Ontario at many of the featured musicians’ homes. Stay tuned for the official video for "Birdsong", more Live at Dream Date videos and an upcoming virtual show - all to be announced soon.
