The Fabulous Ginn Sisters have made a career of breaking hearts in clubs across North America. Their already constant touring schedule recently ballooned to include touring as part of the Fred Eaglesmith Band. Backing up the iconic Indie artist led to a collaboration with Eaglesmith’s band in their opening sets. Eaglesmith was struck by the new band’s rough, rawboned sound and invited them to record the new Fabulous Ginn Sisters CD in his Port Dover, Ontario studio. The result is a smoky, drunken stumble through a broken-heart junkyard. ‘You Can’t Take a Bad Girl Home’ is set for release in 2010. Having notched out a place for themselves with their amazing singing, the new CD is a marked dodge towards rock and roll. The songs are bleak yet poppy, the singing is subtle and nuanced, and the music is a garage mix of reverb and mystery hum. The Fabulous Ginn Sisters (then ‘The Ginn Sisters’) first made their mark on the Americana scene with their 2006 release “Blood Oranges” which received stellar reviews from regional, national and international media. It was played on Americana, AAA, Folk, Country, Eclectic, and even Bluegrass radio. It reached #2 on the RootsMusic Report, #3 on the FAR Chart and #24 on the Americana Chart. It was the #1 independently released CD on the Americana Chart for 2006. It was in top rotation on a number of national radio, TV-radio and Internet stations, including XM Radio's X Country. They have played in some of the best listening rooms in the country like The Ark, Mountain Stage, The Little Bear, The Bitter End, The Cactus Cafe, Eddies Attic, CSPS, the Focal Point, Swallow Hill, and the Bluebird Café and festivals including Big State, Kerrville, and Flat Rock. They are primarily interested in playing at festivals, music clubs, theatres and listening rooms. “I love the (Ginn) Sisters. This is straight stuff, no girly business here. Everyone should own this CD.” Jon Dee Graham As Eaglesmith says of the disc, "This is a pop/rock CD, propagated in South Texas, cultivated on the road… the songs spill over into a side of town where reality is kick-started and sadness is a lurking stranger that won't go away. It is both raw and beautiful."
