Artist: The Clumsy Lovers, Album: Under The Covers With The Clumsy Lovers, Song: Single Girl

"My husband chews tobacco and he snores in his sleep.  Lord I wish I was a single girl again."  The Clumsy Lovers are a band (of many styles) from Vancouver, British Columbia.  You could call their music folk, bluegrass, Celtic or even rock.  They formed during the mid to late nineties playing local bars before deciding to record.  They released their first album in 1998 and to date, have 8 releases.  Their most recent release was in 2010.  They have won a number of regional awards for their music and have toured across North America.  In 2004, they signed with Nettwerk Records and released a couple of albums with the label.  Under The Covers, was recorded in 2001 and features band members, Jason Homey, Chris Jonat, Andrea Lewis, Devin Rice and Trevor Rogers.  The album is a collection of cover songs.  Some are famous rock tunes that we all know and love while others are more traditional tunes.  They do renditions of songs like I'm On Fire (Bruce Springsteen), Where The Streets Have No Name (U2), Norwegian Wood (Beatles) and my personal favourite, Centerfold (J. Geils Band).  During their rendition of Centerfold, the band breaks into the music from Salt 'n' Pepa's hit, Push It.  One song that deserves an extra spin is their cover of the traditional song, Single Girl.  Fiddler, Andrea Lewis, takes over the mike for this tune.  You can watch the band perform an extended version of the song from a show in 2011 (  The band is still playing today and is currently playing shows in the U.S..  You can follow them at  You can purchase, Under The Covers, from their website.  Thanks for reading and enjoy!
