ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“Heartwood” is The Boxcar Lilies’ debut studio release - 10 songs beautifully produced and engineered by Dave Chalfant (Erin McKeown, The Nields) at Sackamusic studios nestled in the woodsy hilltown of Conway, MA. Comprised of 9 originals and a stellar version of Neil Young’s “Old Man”, the collection pays homage to a range of traditional genres (folk, bluegrass, country), but has a decidedly
contemporary feel. The hallmark of the record is The Boxcar Lilies’ spine-tingling and innovative harmonies. Their singing voices, like their writing voices, are distinct and exceptional, but combine to make a delicious whole – a sound that is sometimes delicate, sometimes gritty, but always uniquely warm and welcoming.

Backing Jenny (guitar, ukulele), Stephanie (guitar, percussion), and Katie (guitar, banjo), are an impressive group of musicians who also happen to be their neighbors, including Dave Chalfant on guitar and bass, Jim Henry (Mary Chapin Carpenter, Tracy Grammer) on Dobro, guitar, and mandolin, and Eric Lee (The Strangelings) on fiddle. "Heartwood" will be officially released in December of 2010.

ABOUT THE BOXCAR LILIES
After dating on and off for much of 2009, singer-songwriters Jenny Goodspeed, Stephanie Marshall, and Katie Clarke decided to make it official. Over a few beers and a yummy plate of nachos at a local tavern, The Boxcar Lilies were wed. Yes it was a shotgun wedding. They married their love (read: obsession) for great songwriting and sweet harmonies and set out to arrange originals and some of their favorite cover songs by the likes of Fred Eaglesmith, Neil Young, and Gillian Welch. Each an accomplished singer and songwriter in her own right, together as The Boxcar Lilies they are a high energy and engaging Americana trio with a knack for heavenly three-part harmony and exceptional songwriting.
