Originally bearing roots in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, Good Dear Good brings their East Coast heritage to their name. Commonly known as a greeting on the Cape Breton coast, “good dear good” is a simple response to “how are ya?” that emulates the kindness and lighthearted aura each member puts out into the world. Their vibrant and emotional lyrics on top of harmonious indie-pop/rock melodies take us to the dark depths of the Atlantic while the sun shines a beam straight to the ocean floor. Each player is a pillar to equally support a sound that is living, breathing and above all — good.
Good Dear Good are launching their celebratory self-produced debut EP “Arrival” in June 2023 with mixing by John Mullane (AKA Future Dad). Themes of finding your people — the ones you hold near and dear, persevering through mental health struggles amongst a broken system, and resilience are what make up Good Dear Good’s upcoming record. This will be their first release under Lulo Music — an emerging indie label based in Dartmouth that was born out of the NSCC community through the Music Business program.
