Standing on the precipice of a new and exciting venture, the band members of Lovers Leap decided to jump. Under the shadow of the towering rock outcrop in Hot Springs, NC, from which their name was inspired, their sound took flight and soared through the mountain air. Their first encounter was set up by a festival producer as a musical blind date between GRAMMY-nominated bassist Shelby Means (formerly of Della Mae), acclaimed singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Mary Lucey (formerly Biscuit Burners), award winning guitarist and songwriter Joel Timmons (Sol Driven Train), and slide guitar pioneer Billy Cardine (Acoustic Syndicate and formerly Biscuit Burners). The quartet felt an immediate musical chemistry, which insisted on being pursued like a flirtatious lover. As their first show unfolded and boundaries dissolved, the satisfying balance of lush harmonies and provocative solos tugged on the audience’s heart strings while satiating their desires for instrumental virtuosity.
