Album Notes
Boomchix are a harmony singin' roots-rock band from Vancouver Canada fronted by Janice Dunbar (vocals/guitar/songwriter), Barb Wilkins (vocals/mandolin) and Jessie Christophersen (vocals/12 string guitar) .

Boomchix defy the boundaries of genre defined music. Influenced alternatively by country, rock, folk, pop, blues and bluegrass, their original songs blend catchy melodies with strong harmony vocals.

Produced by Marc L'Esperance (Linda McRae, Ray Condo) and Janice Dunbar, 'Surprise Surprize' was independently released by founding Boomchix members Janice Dunbar and Barb Wilkins. Along with their lead and harmony vocals, acoustic guitar and mandolin, the production features the playing of some of Vancouver's best musicians: Paul Pigat on lead guitars and banjo, Linda McRae on electric bass, Shelley Brown on stand-up bass and harmony vocals, Ed Goodine and Marc L'Esperance on drumkit, and Meredith Bates on violin. All 13 tracks were engineered and mixed by Marc L'Esperance at Heavyosonic in Vancouver.

"...One need listen no further than Boomchix awe-inspiring debut release, Surprise Surprize, to hear the difference a little bit of soul can make: Sweet melodies, honest lyrics, world-class musicianship and damn near perfect production..."
- R.C. Joseph - "Listen to Me" 24 hours Vancouver

“Surprise, Surprize defines Janice as a creative and passionate songwriter, and Boomchix as a must-catch live local act. I highly recommend that you buy this album, and better still - catch Boomchix playing live throughout our fine city sometime soon. Janice and Barb are very charismatic performers that really connect with their audience and have a great time up there on the stage. Their music kicks, their personalities shine. You are guaranteed a wonderful night if you make the effort to get up, get out, and catch them live.”
- Glynis Burke - YVR Music Productions

“This is where country belongs. The Boomchix know enough about country to be true to the style, yet are wise enough to use elements of rock, well controlled in their application, to enhance the music, not take it over. Too much country today is rock in an ill-fitting country disguise. This is not that. This is country, pure and simple, it just knows enough to draw the best from the past and the present while keeping it real.”
- CALVIN DANIELS - Yorkton This Week newspaper Jan.2, 2008 - Yorkton, SK. Canada

...one of the best Roots albums to come out of Vancouver in years.
Part of me kind of wants to like The Dixie Chicks, if only for their willingness to piss in the face of their Walmart patron fan base by calling a jackass a jackass... and they do have purty voices... and... and... I just can't do it. It's like in those psychology experiments when they give a baby monkey a wire mother instead of a live mother. The baby monkeys go crazy from a lack of connection to anything real. The Dixie Chicks are like a wire mother. The Boomchix's on the other hand are authentic, and warm... and deeper than The Dixie Chicks could ever be, even if you chucked them into a bottomless pit. Amazing vocal harmonies, pro but not slick musicianship, and an underlying sense of humour make for one of the best Roots albums to come out of Vancouver in years.
