The Boxcar Lilies at the me and thee!
Combining spine-tingling three-part harmony and exceptional songwriting, The Boxcar Lilies have made a name for themselves with their signature mix of folk, country, blues, and bluegrass-tinged Americana music. Though each member of the Massachusetts-based trio has a distinct singing talent, they deftly weave their voices into a delicious whole a sound that is sometimes delicate, sometimes gritty, but always innovative and soul-stirring.
Their trademark harmonies may have put the band on the Americana music map, but their genuine and charming stage presence and off-the-cuff banter helped keep them there. Theyve brought their engaging live show to venues across the Northeast and beyond, including The Iron Horse Music Hall, Caffé Lena, Club Passim, and Philadelphia's Tin Angel, as well as performing arts centers including the Calvin Theater (supporting the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band) and many house concerts, wineries and private events.
The trios sparkling and lush brand of Americana has led to numerous opportunities including being selected for an official showcase at the International Folk Alliance Conference in Memphis, performing for SRO crowds at the 2015 New Bedford Folk Festival in Massachusetts, being named 2013 Northeast Regional Folk Alliance Formal Showcase Artists, and performing at the 2014 Falcon Ridge Folk Festival as the #1 Most Wanted Emerging Artist.
The Boxcar Lilies recently began an exciting new chapter when award-winning singer-songwriter Susan Cattaneo (guitar) joined Jenny Goodspeed (guitar, electric bass) and Stephanie Marshall (washboard, cajón, guitar) to complete the current Lily line-up. Original band member Katie Clarke retired from the group at the end of 2015 after collaborating on all three of the bands albums to date.
A Boston area artist with a powerful and versatile voice, Cattaneo combines vivid storytelling with a modern songwriters spin. For 15 years, she has been teaching songwriting at the Berklee College of Music. In 2015 alone, Susan was a finalist in the Kerrville New Folk Competition, the International Acoustic Music Awards, the Independent Music Awards, and the USA Songwriting Competition.
Each Lily brings to the stage her own unique influences and inspiration - whether they come from the world of musical theater, 70s singer-songwriters, classic rock or country but they are united in their shared love (read: obsession) with harmony singing.
