Singer, Songwriter, Musician, Artist - Gigi Dover
Multi-Instrumentalist, Composer, Producer - Eric Lovell
Incorporating the sounds and vibes of world instruments, GDTBL deliver a fresh, palatable blend of gypsy, jazzy, bluesy, funky southern soul & world music.
“An uplifting musical experience somewhere between Marvin Gaye and Fiddler on the Roof.”
This spring, Gigi Dover & Eric Lovell will release their 7th studio recording.
Created and recorded in their own Blu Bubble Studios, in Charlotte NC ~
“Travelin’ Thru” is collection of songs and a few short whimsical instrumentals,
more wood than steel, designed to inspire the listener to “dance, meditate, or anything in between.”
Recorded by multi-instrumentalist Eric Lovell, Eric plays everything from Guitar to Sitar to Banjo and Rebab,
weaving a lush carpet of sound that interplays naturally with Gigi’s soulful vocal style,
and her reflective, revealing, and at times humorous, lyrical musings.
“Travelin’ Thru” also features long time Big Love band members;
Jason Atkins on keys and John Spurrier on drums and percussion.
They likewise added bassist Flavio Mangione as the pulse rounding out the heart of their sound.
With this release, Gigi and Eric will celebrate the 14 year mark on their collaborative musical journey.
Countless tours and gigs both regionally and internationally,
thru the US, the UK and Europe have garnered them recognition and success from fans, peers and critics alike.
All the while, Gigi and Eric remain true to their goals of pushing themselves creatively with every project they enter into together….
“Keeping “fun” at the top of the list, if we’re not stretching our art, we’re not growing ~ and growing art is what we do.”
