Reverend TJ McGlinchey and Dani Mari have joined forces to create the band Lovers League. The project is a combination of their solo songs performed as duets. Christopher Davis-Shannon & Dean Gorfti complete the sound of the band with their folk-pop rhythms. Reverend TJ McGlinchey’s folk and blues flavor compliment Dani Mari’s nostalgic pop vocal melodies. Their harmonies are natural and free flowing. They have performed live on WXPN’s Folk Show hosted by Gene Shay and at the Philadelphia Folk Festival. Their album “2” is produced by award winning producer Bill Moriarty (Lotus, Dr. Dog, Toy Soliders). Lovers League will be on tour throughout 2015 and plan to be back in the studio sometime in 2016.
-“Lovers League is a sweet expansion on the theme of young, infatuated love.”
-“Melding their vocals, McGlinchey and Mari create a smooth yet earthy, enriching texture with a folk-oriented acoustic country-blues foundation that provides a natural heartfelt penetrating sound.”
-“Lovers League, a duo of Reverend TJ McGlinchey and former Origivation (now That Music Mag) Acoustic Artist of the Year Dani Mari, make breezy, well-crafted country-folk that is perfect for summer afternoons. The focus here is squarely on careful, melodic songwriting and the gorgeous, Emmylou Harris and Gram Parsons-inflected harmonies between Mari and McGlinchey, who both wrote songs for the project.”
-“The sound the three produce is simultaneously worthy of a sing-along and of a boot-stomping get-together around a campfire–all things that are right up my alley as a listener.”
